i wouldnt say avoid it, but... dont expect to use it. if you are collecting them, go for it. they also provide some sand paper which will sand off the exposed titanium. however it wont ever stop, so you will endlessly be sanding the knife lol.
it looks great tho. but i agree, if you want to use it, go with the standard carbon fiber and not the titanium carbon fiber version.
i have the TI wire and am probably going to get the standard carbon fiber version. especially at this price.
