Unless you are planning on making knives for divers, I would use it for other things like maybe scales for folders, or something totally not knife related.

From the ASM's Metals Handbook, Volume 2, 8th Edition:
"It has been shown that Ti-6 Al4 V sheet should be cooled to 1000F from a solution treating temperature of 1700 F in no more than 1.5 sec to develop maximum strength after aging, and that the delay from the time this material is removed from the furnace until it is water quenched should be limited to about 2 sec."
Recommended solution treatment for bars from the same source is 1650 to 1750 F for 0.5 to 1 hour. For sheet, 1650 to 1725 for 5 to 20 minutes.
Whether a knife would be more like a bar or more like a sheet, I cannot say.
