Do share more of your vast font of titanium knowledge.
You have clearly thought this through.
Caveat; the above meant tongue in cheek. Rright or wrong, you are of course entitled to your opinion.
You just seem to have overlooked quite a few factors in regards to applications (not least knives in the family of the tools pictured above), strength to weight ratio (titanium is a fantastic material in that regard - dare I say optimal), the knives from Spyderco having a lock integrated in the titanium handle etc etc.
You just proved his point, by choosing niche knives that few own and fewer actually use. Because it's hard to argue with the OP on the actual substance of his points regarding the broad set of knives out there.
The integral lock boom right now is also more fad than function for most people.
NTTAWW anyone buying things they like, for their own reasons.
But all anyone has to do is look at what Spyderco produces, and that tells you where various materials and locks fit into the scheme of things.
BTW, I thought Spyderholes and FRN were bizarre when I first saw them. But people seemed to think they were worth a try, so I got some. I had no idea what I was getting into.
