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.
- 22% 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
Makes my smocks action buttery with no blade play exactly what I was looking for
Got this to for my Pro-Tech Malibu, it fit perfectly and blade centering was dead middle. The full cage leaves much less room for lint and debris to enter the pivot and gunk up the bearings. It will be a required upgrade for any more Malibus I buy in the future.
These are awesome and worth every penny. Do yourself a favor and grab a set. I used these on my protech malibu and they fit like a glove. Great product!
(Installed on Spyderco Smock and Protech Malibu. Both are much nicer, now.)
I bought these bearings to put into a Smock I decided to mod and oh boy, that was probably the best decision I made. Super smooth, blade flies open and drops close. Compared to the stock Smock I have, these bearings are a significant upgrade. Worth the money for sure!
