I use https://www.inventables.com/technologie ... piral-bits but they have an 1/8" shank.

These are more expensive but have a 1/4"

Here's a bit that has 4 long flutes at 2.5" in length.

I've been having fun with these...

If you use a v-carving software or plugin these bits can give you variable width from hair-line to 1/8". But for consistent width cutting, even maker cam would work.
