Abstract: A cutting insert includes a main body including a first face, a second face, and a third face. The second face includes a rake face. Among the outer-peripheral sides of the second face, the boundary portion with the first face is a main cutting edge. When viewed from the side where the first face is disposed, the main cutting edge includes a first straight portion, a second straight portion, and a curved portion. The first straight portion is located adjacent to a reference side. The second straight portion is arranged at a distance from the first straight portion. The curved portion connects the first straight portion and the second straight portion. A first intersection angle of the first straight portion with respect to the reference side is different from a second intersection angle of the second straight portion with respect to the reference side.
Abstract: A single-crystal diamond includes n types of regions different in total concentration of an impurity, the n types of regions being observed in an observed surface being in parallel to a (110) face. Each of the n types of regions has an area not smaller than 0.1 ?m2. At least one of a first line, a second line, and a third line on the observed surface crosses a boundary between the n types of regions at least four times. The first line, the second line, and the third line are in parallel to a <?110> direction and have a length of 1 mm. A midpoint of the first line corresponds to the center of gravity of the observed surface. The second line and the third line are distant from the first line by 300 ?m in a <001> direction and a <00?1> direction, respectively.
