FRIEDRICH HARTKOPF e.K. Solingen
Pocket knife and stiletto factory
The pocket knife factory was founded in 1890 by Friedrich Wilhelm Hartkopf, a pen knife reider by trade.
HARTKOPF specializes in the production of high-quality pocket knives and stilettos by hand. All models have blades forged by hand. The bolsters are made of solid nickel silver; as a result, these pocket knives are not necessarily among the lightest. However, HARTKOPF's objective is not to produce the lightest knives, but the most durable ones.
Mass production is not the credo, but pocket knives for individualists.
As a traditional manufacturer, the brand assumes responsibility even after the statutory warranty period This is their idea of quality. And since quality should only be bought in conjunction with good advice, HARTKOPF pocket knives are sold through specialized dealers. HARTKOPF does not hold "factory sales" and thus supports the specialized trade.
Classic models with corkscrews and cap lifters are as much part of the program as exclusive lockable knives.
HARTKOPF pocket knife finishes: snakewood, ebony, rosewood, coconut, olive wood, thuja, redwood, horn, mother-of-pearl, bog oak.
