Cobalt drill bits are particularly suited for drilling through hard metals such as stainless steel and cast iron. This is due to the fact that the drill is made from a high strength steel alloy, with the addition of a minimum of 5% cobalt content. The cobalt doesn't just make the drill harder, it make it able to withstand higher temperatures from the friction caused by drilling through steel. It also helps to reduce the friction, so it stays cooler to begin with.
In addition, because the cobalt is part of the entire alloy, if the bit becomes dulled during use, it can be sharpened again and have the same properties as if it were new. Its extra hardness, heat tolerance, and friction reduction are not impacted. Other drill bits, even titanium bits, only have coatings to reduce friction and heat. Once that coating wears off they are just another drill bit.
