    Enhancing Excellence. Walther launches Meister Manufaktur range of custom pistols.

    Walther, a company defined by over a century of engineering passion, precision workmanship, and innovation, has once again entered a new era of manufacturing.

    The Meister Manufaktur program creates an exclusive line of hand-engraved, hand-finished pistols with newly developed coatings and finishes never seen before on a production line. Every Meister Manufaktur limited edition pistol promises respected Walther performance combined with hand-finished quality to exceptional detail.

    The Meister Manufaktur program launches with four exceptional pistols built around the popular model. The Black Diamond, Black Tie, Patriot, and Arabesque models each have several uniquely defining features separating them from a standard production model. Highly skilled artisans have worked in concert with Walther engineers to fuse the very best aesthetic embellishments with performance upgrades and state-of-the-art surface treatments.

    The Walther passion for pursuing excellence has been enhanced and baked into the DNA of the Meister Manufaktur program. Its ambition is to produce beautiful, soulful, performance leading products without parallel in the pistol market.

    “Walther’s vision was to fuse form and function to create the ultimate experience for its customers. More beauty, more soul – yet totally usable. Why should something truly beautiful only be collected, and why should something built for performance not lead its class in good looks and artistry? Using our in-house engineering and technical skill fused with some of the world’s most celebrated craftsmen meant our imagination was the only limiting factor with the Meister Manufaktur program,” said Bernhard Knöbel, CEO, Carl Walther GmbH.
