I throw Skiff Bearings in all of my knives and they work like a charm every time. Can’t go wrong.

Cage Bearings with Fox Suru

The Cage Bearings work fine with my Fox Suru.
Open/Close is very smooth. Also the sideways stability of the blade increased since i changed the bearings!

PERFECT FIT FOR SO MANY, SOC Mini J-cape included

We all know by now how awesome Skiff bearings are… Confimation that 5mm-1/16-11ball fit perfectly in Something Obscene Company Mini-JCape’s!!

SMALL knife. Nice improvement with the action of the St knicks exclusive TS , slightly better action in the black/satin flipper, like all skiffs this will improve with use. You can’t go wrong spending 10-13 bucks on improving the lateral stability of the blade, slight improvement in action, and huge increase in your knife’s brainer
