I'm currently interested in Wladmann pens, especially the Waldmann Solon, Vienna and Xetra Vienna.

So far, I couldn't find any reviews or info saying more than Waldmann is doing on their homepage on the web (I only found some posts about the Tango and like one post about the Manager).

So, my question is whether anyone here could pictures of how these pens look in the flesh and maybe write about his/her experiences with these pens.


Looking forward to your replies! :)

I'm looking forward to see what people will write, as I have also wondered about those mysterious pens myself...

Waldmann started to get some inertia here... I'm playing with the idea, about buying a Waldmann Xtera Vienna... maybe next year, for this year, I'm already spent my pen budget. Hopefully till time someone will post some review about this pen.

If it wasn't for the fact they have nail nibs, the factory is close enough to Heidelberg to think of going down to look at their show room. Why don't you see where it is....It might be close enough to go to, or to detour if you are going somewhere near by or passing it.


The Vienna finish is supposed to be rare in today's world.


I don't care for nail nibs.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Hello, new user of Waldmann Solon here. I just bought it 3 hours ago, so no review yet, but first impression is extremely great, nib (F) is smooth with a bit of nice feedback, not scratchy, not toothy, just a feedback that your nib is on a paper. For that price (120 € here with taxes), I would buy it again, no doubts about that.

... I believe in purple ink
