    As a long-time collector of hand-made (custom) knives, I discovered Gilliam knives. They craft deluxe bearings. I also discovered most knifemakers use standard open caged bearings; store-bought, functional, and mediocre in their action even with the best knives. My advice is to try Gillian barrings, for those of you who open your knives to clean them, etc. Mitch S.

    Always an upgrade to factory bearings. You cant go wrong with Gillian.

    Amazing action

    These were added to a Vero Axon frame lock and made the action smoother than a Cadillac on ice.

    Get these bearings ASAP

    I originally intended these to replace the bearings in my Asher Spiro, however that knife uses differently-sized bearing cages. So I was forced to instead install these on my CJRB Feldspar. They are an amazing replacement! The Feldspar also uses caged bearings, but they're made of nylon. As a result, they felt "scratchy". These beautiful bearings eliminate the Feldspar's problems and makes for an unbeatable action. Super smooth, and with only a dab of NanoOil 10.

    Added these to my Vox F5.5 not expecting too much of a difference. Boy was I wrong! These far exceeded my expectations. It’s like the blade is floating on an air cushion it’s so smooth! Would definitely recommend these without hesitation. Excellent product!

    Bought these to swap into my Something Obscene Company Hawkbill. The action is much smoother, love these!

    So far I've used these in my giantmouse biblio which made a nice smooth improvement but the one that I was blown away with was my mini sheepdog nonflipper! I thought it was fun to fidgit with before but its just nuts now. Highly recommend these and just ordered more for the future
