The 6-lobed Torx security bits are pretty easy to come by just about
anywhere. The 5-lobed Torx security bits, on the other hand, are
considerably more difficult to find, though not unobtanium.
Torx in the non-security version is great. I'm working on a
construction project on the house and much to my surprise, I found
that ceramic-coated deck screws are now made with T25 heads. Much
better than the older square-drive or phillips types.
