it was very important for Diplomat to find a local partner in the Saxony region of Germany, where the pens are manufactured. Carefully matched for optimal performance in Diplomat fountain pens, this partnership resulted in an array of vibrant colors.
Developed by chemist Dr. Kai-Oliver Schäfer, the parameters he used to assess the quality go beyond color and saturation. With every lab-scale batch and every writing test, his requirements regarding pleasant shades, a low degree of fraying, optimum drying time, quick writing and smooth gliding are an obsession.
In his own words, "What started out as a good product is now becoming a passion of mine.” and “It’s no longer about writing something beautiful – it’s about beauty itself!”
