About Us

Take me directly to Our products

For almost 90 years, we at PICARD & WIELPÜTZ are maintaining the tradition of Solingen and are still manufacturing cutlery and distributing it worldwide.


The company was founded in 1927 by the economist Dr. Hans Wielpütz and the technician Erich Picard. Meanwhile, the company is in its third generation of family ownership.

The in-house production guarantees great flexibility and a permanent, reliable ability to supply.

We at PICARD & WIELPÜTZ are working according to strict quality standards with old and trusted production methods, such as bench grinders, which were already used in a similar form decades ago, as well as on modern manufacturing facilities such as robots that can achieve higher production volumes, while maintaining consistent quality. So, PICARD & WIELPÜTZ’s production is an interaction between handwork and mechanical production, which is so balanced, that we can offer our customers the best possible quality.

In 2009, implemented a quality management system, to improve ourselves constantly. Since we have been certified in the area of development, production, purchasing, logistics and distribution by TÜV according to the Quality Management System norm DIN EN ISO 9001.


Over 40 different cutlery models and special products are produced under the brand name Briefanker. In English it’s „letter“ and „anchor“.

The name has its seed in the old time, when Solingen was the stronghold for cutlery- and blade-production. It comes from the term "signed and sealed". In former times, the letter was a kind of certificate, which confirmed the quality. The Anchor served as the seal, which was considered as signature. So, the letter and anchor was considered as signed confirmation of the quality of the products - until now! In addition, the anchor is a recognition sign of Solingen, because it is also in the city coat of arms.

Each cutlery model from our company has an extensive part program and a long-term availability guarantee.

They are manufactured in 18/10 chrome-nickel steel or 18/0 chromesteel.


In addition to the absolute focus of Solinger production PICARD & WIELPÜTZ has long-standing and good relations with foreign producers. With them we are cooperating in areas where production in Germany is not economical, but certain items are needed for the range rounding. The products are produced there according to our quality standards.
