Trying to find a titanium fork for my road bike

Hi all, I was wondering if ya'll could point me in a direction. Im having a custom titanium bike made and I am trying to find a manufacturer of titanium forks. I've checked out merlin, litespeed, airborne etc and no one seems to have a titanium fork for road bikes. Carbon or steel is all I can find. Could anyone point me in a direction. Thanks

You can get a carbon fork with a ti steerer--Serotta, Kestrel and others. Teledyne made ti forks in the 1970s and they were dogs, failed more often than any part of the frame did.
