German term or phrase: Bohrerhalm
HW Dübellochbohrer mit Rückenführung
verbesserte Zentrierung beim Rückhub
stufenlose Senkerbefestigung am Bohrerhalm

Any ideas? Is that the smooth part of the drill bit that gets clamped? And if so, is there a specific term for it?

Notes to answerer
Asker: Actually, I will use shank because "Schaft" appears as well for which I have used shaft. And I'm pretty sure this company also uses shank.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Erika Berrai-Flynn: Auf dem Schaft des Dübelbohrers (hier Halm genannt) kann zusätzlich ein Senker aufgesteckt werden. http://www.prevent-tro.si/de/holzarbeitungswerkzeuge/bohrer/... (Dowel Drill) Shaft ist sicher geläufiger wie "Shank".
