    Yes a bit thicker at .071". These don't really flex like the thinner ones can.

    Also taller and easier to sharpen blade... best finish yet too.

    I am excited to finally get one of these. They have been on my radar for a while but always seemed out of stock.

    Do you ever make these out of other material than titanium?

    Not yet but I have a batch started in .110" Nitro-V steel. I'm about half ways to heat treat, usually do all in house but am sending these to Peters as they need a true cryo treatment. ETA 5-6 weeks
