    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.

    Purchased for Vero Isotope

    Posted by Nate on May 24th 2021

    So, I purchased this to replace the stock Vero Isotope bearings. Not only did it improve the action, it also made it buttery smooth. 10/10 would recommend...

    Great upgrade!

    Posted by Ed on May 13th 2021

    Was looking to upgrade from steel caged bearings on a few of my knives and decided to try these out after hearing about them. So far these ceramic bearings have been a great upgrade just make sure you measure correctly! Action is quite smooth for this first example I tried. Will be purchasing more, highly recommended!

    Awesome Product

    Posted by Owen on May 11th 2021

    I replaced by steel caged bearings in my Holt Bladeworks Haptic with these. They look way better and I are a little smoother. I enjoy the piece of mind of having high quality bearings. Thanks Gillian Knives!

    These bearings run smooth as butter. I've had them for a few weeks and even with a pretty messed up counterbore one the scales if feels great.

    Using these in my Hinderer’s where I have bearings not PB and I do use these with nano grease, the action is perfect. Best bearings on the market
