Waldmann Sterling Silver Ink Roller
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.
Epochal Work. In Shining Armour.
Uncorroded silver can reflect around 99% of the incident visible light, more than any other noble metal. One of the distinct features of this almost white shining metal is its warm appearance, pleasant to the eye and the touch. Silver has another advantage over and above the aesthetics as a material for writing instruments: the barrel has a pleasing heaviness in hand. Additionally, the material will acquire the typical patina over time.
Each Piece a Veritable Jewel with a Practical Disposition.
It is not a coincidence that the Waldmann family business proves its affinity with jewellery manufacturers and their production techniques simply by virtue of its headquarters’ location in the Swabian town of Birkenfeld near Pforzheim, the “town of jewellery”. Waldmann has been making sterling silver writing instruments nearby this time-honoured centre of jewellery manufacture and writing instrument refinement since 1918. Visible to the naked eye, the surfaces of these writing instruments demonstrate the craftspeople’s affinity to the decorative work in details such as the guilloché decorations, the finely engraved patterns on the barrel. Inside the barrel, decades of experience result in an optimally constructed mechanism. Each Waldmann pen is both a precious object and a practical piece that functions smoothly.
