    I was tempted by the titanium one but honestly the aluminium one, for the dough, is pretty hard to beat. I really dig this pen. The only mod I did to it was to widen the clip opening a bit so that it would seat more easily in thick material. Now its perfect!

    When you say it "broke" what do you mean? Which model was it and what was the damage?

    I've owned the Aluminum one, and now on the Titanium one. I think I could run over the Ti one with a tank and it would be just fine.

    Buffalo- How did you mod the clip?

    yup, thats what i did with mine......pretty simple........just take it apart...wrap it up...and toss it in.

    the only thing you need to do is make sure the fire is hot enough......a simple "boy scout" fire wont do.....youll need a good sized bonfire and a nice bed of REALLY hot coals.

    if you happen to have a large fire at your disposal.....ide take advantage of it....the results are stunning.

    Just to give an update.

    I received my Ti Pen but didn't heat treat it. I also got a Ti Preon 2 and Ti Sebenza Insingo thanks to TheTomas showing a picture of his Sebenza Ti Pen in another thread. Man the wallet took a hit on that one. Over $500 worth of Ti riding in my pocket. Sheess the wife would kill me if she knew!

    *EDC fistbump* nice set there. I carry the pen and light clipped inside my left jean pocket, and the sebenza clipped in my right. It makes a fine base to an edc collection. If I could find a titanium zippo for a price that wasn't ridiculous, I'd be all set.

    Are you going to have the pen sandblasted? In addition to the look, it gives the pen a nice, slightly more grippy feel. I recommend it.

    Congratulations on your stuff.

    I was going to have it sandblasted to match the Sebenza. Then when I got my Sebenza I found that I absolutely hated the grippy feel. I spent a couple days rubbing the Sebenza against a pair of jeans and smoothed out the finish to an acceptable level. If I had my wish, and could find someone to do it, I would have the entire Sebenza (except for the blade) polished.

    I tried not to overstate the grippyness, but it seems I have. A brand new seb and a freshly blasted pen are both too grippy for me as well, but the important thing is that they will wear into a very pleasent "smooth" but not "slick" finish. However, this will only happen if they start from the same place. My seb was used, so its a bit ahead off my pen, but at this point they are both great and getting better. I still recommend it, but if you'd rattyher the polish, I'm sure you could the the knife to look just as shiny, just don't polish the inside, lest you mess up Chris' tight tolerances.

    What ever you decide, good luck.
