    Extremely well done

    Posted by Shane smith on Apr 14th 2021

    These are very well done. I have them in a civivi riffle. Probably going to get a set for my we knife malice. These are good bit smoother then the stock ceramics. These have 10balls. Those had 9. These arnt quite as drop shitty yet. Maybe when they break in. But you can truly feel the difference in smoothness. Plus they're stronger because there are more contact points in the blade. And I love the solid bronze cage compared to the stamped cages the stock ones come with. These are deff worth 20 bux. This guy deserves a medal for being able to build these by him self

    I have these installed on 2 XM-18’s and 2 Jurassic’s. The action improvement over the steel bearings are substantial, you really get the best of both worlds with these. Highly recommend getting these for all your knives running on bearings

    Amazingly smooth

    Posted by Jay Neger on Apr 5th 2021

    These bearings are simply amazing. I noticed the difference from the stock bearings immediately. These fit great in the Brian Brown Yeager-M v2 and the Apurvis Primordial MK2.

    Fantastic bearings!

    Posted by Derek Matthews on Mar 15th 2021

    I bought these for my Vero Engineering Impulse (full size). I had skiff bearings in it which were not bad, but wanted to try these. Glad I did! The knife went from halfway drop shut to completely drop shut! Plan on getting more for all of my knives! Thanks Chris!
