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
I have been very satisfied with replacing the 5mm pivot 1/16" caged ceramic bearings that come stock with my knives--the Skiff bearings are just smoother overall, they fit well, and blade centering seems to be easier to accomplish. The 6mm pivot 1/16" caged ceramic bearings have been working out just as well in my knives that use that size (my Twosuns comes to mind). I will continue to change out the stock bearings to Skiffs as they are a real cost-effective upgrade that is easy to do. Recommended.
Cage Bearings - Pivot: 6mm<br>Ceramic Bearings: 1/16 in (13 ball)
Skiff bearings fit perfectly, had solid cages vs. stamped factory cages and 2 more balls per bearing. These bearings optimized my knife’s action.
