Titanium is not magic. Its claim to fame is its light weight, not it's strength. For it is no stronger than steel but is more difficult to machine. It would be easier to produce one from 17-4 stainless steel and be stronger to boot. The problem is the amount of hand-fitting necessary to make it work for the long term. The market is simply too small for a $2000 hand-built break-top that can't operate much above ~20,000psi.
