So I recently jumped into ti knives. Bought some grade5 and a carbidized. Huge thanks to Ban Tang for pointing me in the right direction. Carbidized ti knives are awesome in the right niche. When looking into ti knives think slicers! The edge isn't likely to be hair poppin sharp. The carbidized edge is toothy. The micro serrations slice through fiber and flesh incredibly well. The more you use it the sharper it gets. Really...ti is 38 rc and the carbide is 70+ rc so you get a beaver tooth effect. I tested the edge on card board boxes and it just keeper cutting. Here are some pics of current projects.
