New SPD Invictus IL Folder from PDW

SPD Edition Invictus-IL

Integral Lock Folding Knife with a Handle Machined from a Solid Block of Titanium

Prometheus Design Werx releases their newest iteration of the Invictus folding knife design featuring a unique handle machined from a solid block of titanium billet. This form of folding knife handle construction required the brand several years and as many machining centers to finally develop, produce, and deliver the highest quality of make in this folding knife. Other high-level details include a Böhler M390 alloy blade, ceramic pivot bearings, signature 5 fullers, lock-bar limiter insert, dive watch grade luminous inlays in the dual thumbstuds, and precision machined, fine details throughout this knife. The Invictus-IL is a purpose driven edged tool painstakingly made with state-of-the-art multi-axis CNC machines and the highest level of precision refinements found only in the best production tools.

The SPD Edition of the Invictus-IL by Prometheus Design Werx features the Kraken Trident mark representing their Special Projects Division.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“This version of the Invictus design is the original concept we started on 7 years ago. It literally took over 6 years and as many technical manufacturing centers to get our Invictus-IL to place where it was a replicable and producible reality. Ultimately it was a labor of love and really almost an obsession to get to the finish line and bring them to market. It was one of the very first design projects we worked on at PDW. For years, machine shop after machine shop tried, and unfortunately failed. We refused to give up and got on after it, year after year until we finally collated the right manufacturing network with the knowhow and equal perseverance to see this project through with us. At the end of the day, this is an edged tool with a purpose driven design, but also a great exercise and trial in modern folding knife manufacturing. There is nothing ‘fancy’ about this folder, however, there are a great deal of labor intensive industrial refinements found only in the best tools and machines in the world. The Invictus-IL isn’t for everyone, but it is for those who have a highest regard and appreciation for expertly made, detail oriented, functional metal objects and tools.”

The first delivery of the Invictus-IL will be available for $479.00 on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 at 12:00 noon Pacific via their website,

    I wish they’d make some more of those watch compasses.
