Bushings

standard balisong works by tightening down on the blade a "certain" amount and guessing the axial play, and then applying locktite to the screws. If you tighten down too much, you'll lock the blade. A bushing system works by essentially having a spacer that is slightly thicker than the blade, allowing you to tighten down on this spacer as much as you want. Instead of guessing the axial play, it is pre-determined by the difference in thickness of the blade and bushing. This means that the blade can rotate freely around the stationary bushing while minimizing play.
