Atelier Trompeter & Ritchi – Luxury Engravings

Atelier Trompeter & Ritchi stands worldwide for luxury engravings and the finest handcrafted knives

“From craft one can elevate themselves to art”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Atelier Trompeter & Ritchi stands worldwide for luxury engravings and the finest handcrafted knives.
Only a few exhibits leave the studio in Bondorf near Stuttgart every year.
They are presented at international exhibitions such as Moscow, Las Vegas or Abu Dhabi.

Luxury engravings - up to 700 hand-engraved points per mm²

Engraver Richard Maier crafts each of his works under a microscope and purely by hand. Every motif consists of tens of thousands of lines and points.

Up to a hundred hand-engraved points per square millimetre are possible.

The structures become “visible” through a special staining procedure. Richard Maier’s steel and scrimshaw engravings thus obtain a realistic effect.

“I see my works as poetry. This requires the knowledge of words and forming sentences. This is comparable to the craftsmanship of engraving. To grind a burin and therefore to engrave a simple line is as if you are learning the alphabet. My engravings are poems, they tell stories,” says Ritchi Maier about his works.

Handcrafted knives: prehistoric materials and precious Damascus steel

The knives of the Trompeter & Ritchi collection are crafted purely by hand.

So only a few exquisite pieces are created each year. Various handle materials and blade steels such as fossil mammoth ivory or hand-forged Damascus steel are utilised in this regard.

Customers also frequently put together their personal knife according to their own wishes.

Various specialists work on a Trompeter & Ritchi knife.

Damascus blade smith, knife maker and engraver form the perfect union in this process. Saddlers and bookbinders accurately implement leather sheaths and customised cases.

Back-lock pocket knives, fully integral knives as well as various hunting knife models are the focuses of collections.

About Trompeter & Ritchi

Since 1994, Trompeter & Ritchi has been the address for the finest engravings, scrimshaws and handcrafted luxury objects.

“The spirit of creation is the inspiration for the objects that we form.”

This sentence aptly encapsulates the philosophy of Trompeter & Ritchi.
