Two hours on the squid, one hour on the turtle, 45 min on the phrase
Dive knives generally come in Titanium or Stainless Steel because of their on/off immersion in Salt Water.
Despite the extra cost of the Titanium knives they pay for themselves quite quickly because the stainless steel will generally start rusting in weak spots right from the first dive.
Apart from the viability of etching a Titanium knife as @Clone showed, if he had managed to do that on a Stainless Steel knife it would have only created a set of perfect locations for rust to get right in
