Wilhelm Riepe formed his own writing instrument Company in 1928 to produce Stylographs. These are fitted with tubes containing a fine weighted wire to produce a constant line thickness and enable to user to write much more quickly than Normal Nibs. Initially this Company was called Tiku GmbH from the words Tinten-Kuli. In 1968 the Company was renamed Rotring. A great many Stylographs, some in Superb colours, were produced in the 1930’s named TinkenKuli. These are wonderful writers and are very collectable
by the 1940’s Rotring (Tiku) were one of the first Companies to Begin producing Ballpoints as well as producing the extremely successful Stylographs. In the 1970’s Rotring Purchased the drawing instruments division from Pelikan and developed the highly successful range of Artichect and calligraphy pens “The 400 series”.
