I have seen two different Campagnolo cranks that had spent their entire lives exposed to the salt air blocks from the Pacific Ocean and had multiple splits length wise of three inches or more like a weathered piece of wood. The thick aluminum splinters actually curled like carving a stick with a whittling knife! The splits followed the grain direction of the crank forging.
