Prometheus Design Werx introduces their new collection of Ti-Line Cookware. Light, strong, durable and corrosion-proof, the first three pieces offered in their new cookware collection cover the baseline needs of the solo wilderness adventurer and explorer. The Ti- Line 600ML Mini-Pot/Mug, Sierra Cup, and Spork, all feature folding handles for easier packing inside a pack, and ideally suited for use with compact, pocket and survival stoves. From trekking, backpacking, camping to overlanding these essential pieces of premium titanium cookware round out your loadout for your next journey and adventure into the wilderness and beyond. Pieces from the PDW Ti-Line have a Lifetime Warranty.

The Ti-Line Collection from Prometheus Design Werx will introduce new models as they are developed.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“When it comes to durable performance cookware for the backcountry that will last a lifetime, there is nothing that can really compare to titanium for its strength to weight ratio, and of course, it’s impervious to corrosion. We actually found a special grade of titanium alloy to use in our pieces that’s unlike the other similar pieces currently on the market. Besides the well known benefits of titanium in backcountry cookware, ours also resists the oils from handling and finger prints, and forms exceptionally well to the tooling and molds we made to create these various cookware styles. Our 600ML Mini-Pot/Mug was designed to pair with pocket survival stoves, which fit neatly inside for efficient packing. It’s made to a sweet spot volume of 600ML which fits a pack of instant noodles and the appropriate amount of broth plus extras. As lifelong backpackers, we wanted to have our own version of the classic, versatile and iconic Sierra Cup, and what more universal of an eating utensil can you have than a spork. We’re working on additional models to add to our Ti-Line collection so keep an eye out for upcoming releases. Our first three offerings will be the essentials of a solo cookware kit for the wilderness adventurer.”

The new PDW Ti-Line will be available on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at 12:00 noon PT via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

SPD Field Kitchen Knife Set

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

Prometheus Design Werx’s Fine Cutlery Combo for Camping & Overlanding

A918176B-54CA-4924-8264-9B75684D9E63

This holiday season, Prometheus Design Werx releases their Field Kitchen Knife Set under their Special Projects Division (SPD) label. This fine Field Kitchen Knife Set is ideally suited for group camping to the discriminating, well-equipped overlander.

1BAA792C-5CE8-4567-A801-2F76A628F378

Featuring two knives; a 6” chef and a 4” paring, both of which perfectly nest in the folding box carry case-cutting board combo. The handles and carry case-cutting board are made with reclaimed American maple hardwood, felt lined and have retaining magnets. The knives are made with Carpenter CTS BD1N steel and at a 61RC. Many know that a well-prepared meal tastes best when savored outdoors and the FKKS will be help you achieve that end.

The SPD FKKS is hand made in small production runs and part of their made in the USA, CORE-Line.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“Some of us have been life-long backpackers and around 2006 really began to embrace vehicle based camping, also popularly known as overlanding. The advancements and smart design found in outdoor products notably improve with each passing season, but there is a distinct aspect about overlanding over backpacking, which has a particular appeal and that, is honestly, an ability to bring along more creature comforts. In particular, a wider variety of food, methods to prepare, offer a broader menu, and yes, we like that a lot. In addition to quality, usefulness, and durability, being organized in any backcountry outing is key. We saw an opportunity to improve on a product gap in the camp kitchen with our FKKS. We wanted useful, finely made kitchen knives with design considerations suited for backcountry vehicle based travel. Two knife sizes seemed to cover just about everything one could think of in most practical instances, and also an improved self-contained multi-functional case. While we all know how to improvise with existing products, we wanted to design and offer a finely made cutlery set for the field kitchen that met all of our design and usage criteria, and was just ready to go out of the box. Our FKKS is a finished backcountry product commensurate with an overlander’s dialed-in 4×4 and the rest of the curated equipment that goes along with it. Live Free Eat Well.”

The SPD FKKS will be available for purchase Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

We make the only wool outdoor shirt with patterning details taken from modern technical performance wear, the chest pockets have been resized to fit something besides a pack of Lucky Strikes, and the work wear, industrial grade construction is the most bomber of any shirt of its type available on the market. It’s these small, but critical details, which make our designs, stand apart. They are subtle, strong, but they are there. Our new Heather Gray color was inspired by vintage alpine and mountaineering styles. The Camp Master Red is bold, a call to action, and is in honor of the long outdoor American tradition of Scouting. We’ve always been a fan of stoic Navy Blue, and the Special Edition in 21oz Woolrich is a heavyweight classic with a nod to the US Navy CPO Shirt.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“Our company Founder Patrick has been designing outerwear for over 20 years. Jackets of many varieties have been a part of his design portfolio from almost the beginning of his career. And as an avid fan and rider of vintage motorcycles, he has been designing and using his own custom leather jacket designs for even longer. The personal relationship Patrick has had with the custom leather shop that makes PDW’s leather jackets extends to over 3 decades, and professionally for almost 2 decades. American made outerwear made by these legacy shops operate with a different ethos; wearable goods that are crafted and built to literally last a lifetime or more. The Roam Jacket is our first suede hide style and was inspired by the trucker and ranch styles made in the 1950s and 60s. Unlike the big box, mass market, thin-flimsy suede jackets, ours are made with all US materials, and of a quality and hide weight above all others. Each Roam Jacket is literally handmade with great pride in our home city. Beyond the classic heritage styling, this jacket has an updated cut for the modern man, and can be easily worn over a sweater-hoodie to a wool shirt. You can see in the photo the Roam Jacket being worn with our Fall ’18 wool Melton Woodsman Shirt and an upcoming version of our popular Raider Pant made in WWII dungaree-style USMC cotton herringbone twill.”

In most ways, the Sebenza folders are at their core, embodiments of our brand’s design philosophy of sophistication through simplicity. The exclusive details found in the SPD Edition give our Sebenza 21s that extra finesse, industrial tool aesthetic and character unique to our brand. Without a doubt working with CRK has been a highlight for us in 2018 and we are stoked on the way these came out.”

The PDW Rapide Field Short GC is a part of their Built in USA CORE-Line of products by Prometheus Design Werx. Available in Dark Arid Earth, Dark Leaf Green, and Dire Wolf Gray.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“Since first debuting these a year ago, the Rapide Field Short has quickly become our favorite for every day wear during warmer seasons. The newly updated Guide Cloth we’re now using also makes this short quite suitable for the spontaneous dunk into a mountain lake if the opportunity arises. And if it does, certainly don’t hold yourself back if you’ve got a pair of these on. The Guide Cloth 2.0 fabric totally moves with you, dries fast, and the mesh pocket liners drains water fast. We truly believe these will be the most comfortable field short you will wear and own. Just recently, one of us travelled from warm, dry and sunny Arizona for 7 days, then almost right back out for 5 days in hot muggy Georgia, and the one goto short was the Rapide in Guide Cloth. We’re glad that we can continue to build these in our home state of California, are looking forward to hitting the trails in the Sierra this summer, any other points out bound across our nation and beyond.”

The PDW Rapide Field Short GC will be available for purchase on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 12:00 Noon PDT via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

New Bench Top Work Mat from PDW

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Specialized Work Mat for Craftsmen, Makers, DIYers, and Tinkerers

3E487037-6FB5-4875-A5EF-5FBD4C73D398

The mat is made especially to keep your project organized and to prevent the loss of small items. Made from flexible food grade PVC, the mat features ten compartments that are perfect for working on knives, watches our any other DIY project you are tinkering with. (It definitely beats losing the spring bars of your watch into the carpet).

CE0024EC-843D-4A06-88C1-BE02E9263C39

The PDW Benchtop Work Mat is a thicker styled, negative relief work surface and measures 11” x 17” x 3?8” thick.

8950ACB6-DAA4-43DE-B17A-57563FC8412A

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“This workshop product we created was designed to address a need we routinely encountered. In particular when assembling and disassembling folding knives we wanted to have an isolated work surface to keep and organize small parts like machine screws, washers, back spacers, pocket clips to the larger parts like the handles and blade. Those neoprene mouse pad type work mats just didn’t do a good job keeping small parts organized or in many instances from rolling on to the floor. Our work mat has proven useful for many of our workshop to home tinkering tasks; from changing out spring bars on a watch, servicing a flashlight, and if you’re feeling really adventurous repairing your smartphone. You’re going to want at least 2. One for the kitchen table and one for the workshop/garage.”

The PDW Benchtop Work Mat will be available for purchase for $29.00 each, at 12 Noon PDT, Wed., 18APR18 via their website www.prometheusdesignwerx.com.
