Titanium Keys?

Exquisite Key Replacements

Yes! What better way to show your love for your car then with functional pocket jewelry? Burnt titanium is the icing on the cake when it comes to completing your build.

While our first keys were cast grade 5 titanium, all current and future keys are CNC machined from solid sheets of grade 2 titanium. We have been working hard to perfect the craft of making titanium keys to deliver the most elegant, highest quality keys we possibly can. We are the original manufacturer of the 300zx style key with cut-through Nismo text that is currently being imitated, but hardly duplicated!

Key Fitment

The actual key design should be compatible with the ignition cylinder/door locks of other vehicles not listed. Compare the length and grooves in your key to the ones in the pictures. If in doubt, send an email to sales@roninimports.com.

Titanium Key Cutting

Key cutting machines use high speed steel/titanium nitride coated cutting wheels – they are very hard. Cutting titanium, another hard metal, can generate a lot of heat. Failure to follow the simple instructions below can cause damage to your titanium key. Following the instructions will result in a functional key and guarantee long service life for their cutting wheel!

Initial Key Inspection

If your key is being matched/cut from an extremely old and worn key, we highly recommend finding a locksmith in your area that can code cut you a like-new blank. You will either have to supply a code to them or they can generate a code from your existing key. Your new code-cut key will then be used to transfer the teeth to your new titanium key in a manual key cutting machine.

Step 1 - Cutting
  • Instruct your locksmith to cut your key slowly and with multiple passes on their manual machine.
  • Apply light pressure and skim over the length of the key multiple times until you have completely copied the teeth. Do not cut the titanium key with the typical pressure/speed that you would use with a brass key.
  • Failure to cut slowly will create excessive heat and begin to melt your key where the cutting wheel makes contact.
  • Automatic machines can cut too fast and with too much pressure (which, again, generates excessive heat) and can damage your key.
Step 2 - Deburr
  • After your key is cut you will need to deburr the edges before using it. The wire wheel on a typical manual key cutting machine is not enough.
  • Use either a small jewelers file or roll up a piece of sandpaper (200-320 grit) to smooth out any and all sharp edges left over from the cutting process.
  • We have a simple Youtube video showing the deburr process here: https://youtu.be/v7xkcOATqs0
  • If you plan on testing the key in your car immediately, bring your file/sandpaper with you!
