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

Used these on a microtech MSI and man night and day difference. With the standard bearings with a little effort it would drop when deployed but with these it's butter smooth and no effort drops the blade when deployed. Excellent upgrade!

If you Have not tried em' Don't wait any longer!

Skiff caged bearings are incredible. You want to make your favorite edc even better "skiff it". You remember the first time you put tuned headers on your old Camaro or when you put that tuner on your 12 valve 5.9L Cummins Diesel? Putting Skiff caged bearings will give you the same joy. It just makes them better. I can't describe it but you will definitely be able to feel it!

Perfect Fit - Production Anax

I just put these into my production DLC Anax and they are a perfect fit. Huge improvement. The stock bearings had some issues...rough edges, hanging chads in some spots, grinding action. No amount of cleaning or lubrication solved the problem. No easy way to obtain replacements without sending the whole knife in for warranty, which I did not want to do. These are a huge improvment over the stock teflon bearings in my opinion. Grinding action..gone. Resistance when opening...gone. Very smooth and now drop shut capable. Very pleased.

Every knife needs skiffs

From civivi, to hinderer (don’t get banned like I did they don’t approve), mcnees, microtech every knife I own that has bearings is on them 10/10

Simply the best bearings you can buy

Skiff bearings are the standard by which all other bearings are compared. I put Skiff bearings in all my knives and I know many other knife enthusiasts who do the same thing. You can’t go wrong with Skiff bearings.
