The new bearing compatibility list is now live, check it out here!
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
Cage Bearings - Pivot: 5mm<br>Ceramic Bearings: 2mm (11 ball)
The huge 2mm ceramic ball bearings in phosphorus bronze cages are the best way to go if you can fit then into your knife. The smoothness is unmatched. They are not that expensive compared to what you spent on your knife and the action is very important imo... So I recommend picking up a few sets in different sizes and Skiffing up all your current and future knifes.
These appear to be of the highest quality caged ceramics that I have seen. I highly advise you double check your size, and not listen to anyone else who claims that they know the correct size for your given make/model knife.
As someone below had stated that these were added to a "WE Knife Co. - Fornix" .. well.. I can assure you that THIS SPECIFIC SET does NOT fit the "Fornix". There is also a page listing on reddit that is listed under (Skiff Bearings Compatibility List).
Do not trust most of what any of these people are supposedly "referencing" for any type of proper make/model fitment! I will just be keeping my set that does not fit, and I will be properly measuring the OE set that came out of the knife so that I can now order a set that will actually have proper fitment!
This is the only trustworthy list that seems to have accurately confirmed compatibility, and cross referencing for proper size/fitment:
Very smooth and makes just about any knife you put them in have a faster deployment speed and smoother feeling overall.
I added my skiff bearings to my WE Fornix and man oh man. All I can say is the smoothness is undeniable as it just rockets out when fired or flicked. Couldn't be happier with the results.
