There are several sizes and types of cutters. Some have straight edges and others with a bit of a radius. Some 14mn, others 15mn, even from grizzly. Grizzly sells Byrd heads and also their own. I have G0490x jointer and also 20 inch planer with helical head 454z, I think. Both of them are grizzly heads, and I think have straight edge cutters. The Byrd cutters I believe have a subtle radius.

The planer takes 14mm by 2mm thick inserts $44/10

The jointer takes 15mm x 2.5mm. $66/10.
I haven’t looked, but I would think there would be a Byrd logo on the head if it were theirs.
