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

Whenever I get a new high end folding knife the very first thing I do is look down the top to see if that signature copper shine is there letting me know it is running on Skiffs. If not, the knife gets taken down, the Skiff website gets pulled up, and you know the rest. It’s like the difference between gravel and glass. I’m not exaggerating. Thanks Steve and Kim. You’re the best!

Skiff Bearings

Dear Skiff
Im really happy with your bearings the Pivot: 6mm
Ceramic Bearings: 1/16 in (18 ball) fit on maxace heron (axis lock) and maxace babylon (button lock) the original bearings are made from plastic with ceramic balls and have only 16 balls. You can add in your list (on the skiff website) those two knives as the are widely famous especially the babylon :) I have the both knives two times so I thinking to purchase another two pairs. I already order needle bearings and want to see how they will work in case I don't like them will order yours again. Big Tkanks
