    Abstract: A single-edge drill for forming a deep hole is provided which includes a body and a shank. The body has a single chip discharge groove in the outer periphery thereof, and includes a small-diameter portion, and a large-diameter portion having coolant delivery grooves in the outer periphery thereof. The body has a core thickness at the distal end portion of the large-diameter portion. At the other portion of the body, the groove bottom of the chip discharge groove is located beyond the rotation center of the drill such that the body has no core thickness, and when taken perpendicularly to the axial direction of the drill, the cross section of the body has a crescent shape. When a hole is formed with the drill, a supply path for coolant liquid is defined between the outer peripheral surface of the small-diameter portion and the radially inner surface of the hole.
