    I tried this out today, I think it looks and feels pretty cool. Thoughts?

    I may be the only guy but I prefer the hammered look to the feathered.

    Good to know! I do love the way the dents overlap, reminds me of the surface of a body of water.

    I think the feathered is a great look. Hammer marks look unfinished to me.

    It's hard, for starters. Titanium in my experience is a stubborn material . It has memory and rebounds to where it just was. It doesn't like being struck cold. But I am coming to appreciate the difficulty as well. It takes so much influence to move it around that it's almost like slow motion forging. Also, you can't overheat or it becomes dangerous quick!
