Prometheus Design Werx

Apex Design
Premium Quality

The PDW Ti-1HSU is the best-in-class sparking unit for survival fire making. The highest level outcome of intelligent engineering and carefully considered design. The modern heir to a US military, aircrew issue classic.

1-Handed Use

Why 1-handed? The original intent was so an US Airman who might have one hand or arm incapacitated from an egress injury, could still start a life saving fire with this device using only one hand. Still makes sense in any survival situation. 

Designed to Last a Lifetime

We built the Ti-1HSU to last a lifetime of use and service. These unit can easily be handed down to the next generation and keep the tradition of being trained for wilderness survival alive. Whether stashed in your pocket, in our Ti-FST, match case, or hollow handle survival knife, the Ti-1HSU can be depended upon whenever you need it.


Details Make the Design

We took the original military issue version and applied numerous upgrades. The driver to unscrew and access the flint spring is integrated into the cap. Fine industrial knurling was applied to the body for sure grip in many conditions. The body features two neck down sections to allow the wrapping of fishing line to nano cord.

Extended Service Life

Another feature in our Ti-1HSU is the built in storage for extra flints in the cap, extending it's sparking ability 4 fold per reload. We used aerospace grade 5 titanium in the construction of this sparking unit. Our EDC metal alloy of choice for durability, it's impervious to corrosion, lightweight and strong.

Expanded Functionality

While these are already a compact size, we still managed to find a way to make this device even more useful for survival needs. Shown here with (user defined) fishing line or nano cord; more indispensable materials for wilderness survival. The wheel fork is asymmetrical to allow for tactile indexing of sparking direction.

Stand Alone or
Use Together

The overall size of the Ti-1HSU is very compact can be used as a stand alone device. It is also a perfect fit in our Ti-FST (F.ire S.upport T.ool) and along with a few other items, creates a highly efficient, self contained fire making kit.
