Cage bearings that allow more balls to be placed around the knife pivot than standard cage bearings. Which provides more support for the blade and decreasing stress on each ball. The ceramic balls are captured in the disc but are still free floating to prevent binding.
Includes Grade 5 ceramic bearings pre-installed.
- Increased blade support over caged bearings of same size
- Improved ball pathing around pivot
- Less pivot screw tightening required
- CNC machined from solid phosphor bronze
- One set equals two individual cage bearings
These knives weren’t terrible with the stock bearings, but your bearings make them buttery smooth! Much recommended!
Love these bearings, use them in all my users.
Skiff workshop had caged bearings available for several knives I have. Buying online was easy, shipping was fast, items were well packaged. Great bearings as overall knife upgrade. Also using the website for sizing was super convenient.
I’ve got to say, I’ve installed Skiff bearings and washers in at least 25 different knives/platforms, and couldn’t be more pleased. For me, it’s not about being “drop shut” or quicker deployment, it’s having that quality in the pivot. The added strength of the solid pb cage/washer over a standard open sided bearing just seems right to me. I’m no engineer, but it just seems right to me. I’m often surprised when I get a high end knife and it has cheap, run of the mill bearings, they should all come with skiffs! Well worth the money.
These awesome bearings really slick up the action on the pricey semi custom folder with phosphor bronze washers! One knife benefitted from an inset but didn’t have to have it. Thanks for the sweet ride!
