    While somewhat on the IKBS subject, IMO they are a "fix" for an issue that does not exist. And add no real benefit, more like useless cost and complexity. If you get right down to it caged bearing systems seem "better" between the two but still offer no substantial benefits more like cons outweigh the pros

    I would worry about the long term durability of the IKBS in a bali used for flipping constantly ... I can just see those tiny bearings flying out of the bali

    Benchmade channel construction with Zen pins:
    41M, 41MC, 41SS, 42SS, 42SSC (42SS-01), 42-01 and 42-400.

    I've taken a few 29 Knives (with Torx screws) apart and they also had bushings. Super tight spec's too. Not sure if all Chris' Torx or hidden pin models have bushings but the ones I took apart did.
