Nitrogen is a noble gas and not very reactive, thus can help resist a corrosion reaction in the metal...so yea, makes sense to me that they'd use it.
I agree with the minimal demand of High grade metals. I think they're using Titanium to make Bolts and such to put into people's spines

I am coming from Cutlery, where only a very small portion of people go for the best available since it's cost is high in comparison. While the difference in performance is quite drastic, most people look at Cutlery as if it didn't matter much
