Thread: Titanium

    Default Titanium

    Anyone have titanium Eigers/Matterhorns (not sure what they were called back then)?
    Not a lot of info on the site regarding body styles, heads etc.
    I did see that they were only available in a smooth body style.
    Located (possibly) one with an Ultra head.

    Thank you.
    Wondering which body styles were available; pocket, lug or keychain.
    Also about how old these are as it appears that they weren't offered for very long.

    As far as I know, the Ti Peaks were only available in smooth + "Key Chain" style.

    I believe the reason for this was, due to material cost and machining difficulty for titanium, these were built from tubing stock.

    As for dates of manufacture, while Peak did do (multiple) limited production runs, titanium models were also available by custom order for quite some time. So identifying a narrow date range is not really possible for most of these (apart from, for example, those specially labeled as the CPF sets, etc)

    Also, be aware that (as you might expect) the threading is consistent with the other versions in the same line, so it is certainly possible to swap tubes and bezels among these.
