Regular steel I would imagine, I know it's not aluminum or titanium, stainless steel? I'm no help at all, but if using a tig I would weld it like steel or stainless.

No directions are better than bad directions. If you don't know, it's ok to let someone else answer.

Just like others have said, they're titanium.
