    Holt Haptic is super smooth

    I was able to tighten the pivot tighter with these bearings than the originals while still maintaining that well known Holt smooth drop shut action. Very pleased with my purchase!

    Perfect fit for my Half Track. Made a big difference in deploying the knife. I don’t think the knife will ever drop shut but I love the action with these new salt and pepper bearings.

    I was very glad that these bearings were in stock. Great communications with Christopher.
