Titanium is the most expensive metal that we use for our knife handles. It’s incredibly hard, corrosion resistant, and durable. Combined with excellent balance and lightness when it’s in your hand, it makes for a knife that you don’t want to set down. Typical titanium knife handles are finished with sand or bead blasting, a process designed to make mass production more forgiving. We choose to leave the machined marks exposed—it’s beautiful and unique, and it highlights, rather than obscures, the manufacturing method. The process is much harder but the result is worth it. We engrave each handle with the elemental symbol for titanium, Ti, to denote its value.
