The creation of an era. Clad in silver.
Non-corroded silver will reflect almost 99% of incident visible light. That’s more than any other precious metal. One of the unique qualities of the glistening whitish metal is the agreeable warmth it radiates both optically and haptically. Those are qualities that make silver a suitable material for writing implements, because beyond aesthetics silver has a particular weight in the hand. And a precious metal is a rebuke to the general throwaway mentality. A silver fountain pen or biro calls for an esteeming and attentive handling. It maintains continuity over generations. One does not simply dispose of it when it has to be refilled. And in the course of time, in spite of dutiful polishing, it will age gracefully, acquiring the characteristic silver patina.
A thing of beauty with a practical touch.
It’s not just a coincidence: with its headquarters in Birkenfeld in the vicinity of Pforzheim the family run Waldmann firm shows an affinity with jewellery producers and their manufacturing techniques. Waldmann has been producing sterling silver writing implements in that revered centre of jewellery manufacture since 1918.The decorative detail in the barley or linear patterns or the finely engraved shank resemble the craftsmanship associated with jewellery production. And the decades of experience with the painstaking mechanical construction pay off in the flawlessly functioning inner workings. For those who wish to individualize their pen, a jeweler can inscribe a name or dedication in the engraving space.
