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

Skiff Bearings

Plain and simple, Skiff Bearings improve ALL, ALL my knives, making it that much smoother. And customer service is just freaking AWESOME! Thank you Steve, for examples of what customer services should be and beyond.

These bearings were listed to fit a QSP Penguin. They Do Not!! They are too thick & when you try to put the knife back together the Stop Pin is to Short. This was the first time i ordered Skiff Bearings & probably the Last.


Best bearings available. Highly recommend

Upgrade your bearings

I have installed Skiff cage bearings on 4 of my personal knives and I can't say enough good things about them. The only reasonI don't have them on all my knives is because I'm waiting for my Skiff Bearing gauge to arrive so I can start ordering more. These little bearing cages will drastically improve the function and feel of any knife. Installation is easy and with a little KPL you're knife will never feel better. Do yourself a favor and upgrade to Skiff cage bearings now.
