Diplomat, established in Germany 1922, is synonymous with quality and excellence. They operate with the philosophy that handwriting forges a personal connection. This belief underwrites everything that they do. So much so that they offer a 5 year warranty on all of their writing instruments.
Diplomat has also taken the unusual step of encasing all of their pens in metal to ensure a long lasting quality and durability. Then to doubly ensure their quality they hand test all of their pens because "durability is a matter of precision."
