Waldmann Pens | Noble Handicrafts from Master Hands

The history of the company began in 1918 in Pforzheim, the traditional German jewelry metropolis in the Black Forest, as a production site for high-quality gold and silver mechanical pencils. This was followed by the development and production of fountain pens and ballpoint pens made of metals such as brass, silver, or 18-carat gold.

Waldmann has also made a name for itself as a specialist for unusual finishes. The old craftsmanship of engraving deserves special mention. Only very few master engravers still master the “Viennese pattern,” and only Waldmann is able to produce unique writing instruments with this uniquely elegant engraving method, individually made one by one. Tradition, quality, and craftsmanship since 1918 – Waldmann has combined all of these into their writing instruments.

925 Sterling Silver is therefore a precious metal alloy consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other materials. Being a harder and more stable alloy, making it ideal for the production of jewelry and coins, but also for the production of high-quality writing instruments, such as those made by Waldmann.

Everything that leaves the company's own production has been manufactured by skilled craftsmen with many years of experience using traditional handcrafted techniques, still painstakingly and lovingly doing manual work. The enthusiasm for innovation, modern techniques, and filigree handcrafting has been a longstanding tradition.

As in the founding year, Waldmann still manufactures 100% of its writing instruments in Germany today; therefore, the products from the Waldmann manufactory rightly bear the signature “Made in Germany.”

The writing instruments of Adolf Waldmann are of timeless elegance. One of the bestsellers from the year 1918 also became the 100-year Anniversary pen. The line pattern engraved with the traditional technique of guilloché was already an elegant pattern 100 years ago and has proven to be timeless and popular to this day.
