We keep a small quantity of type 060 nibs in stock, which are size 5 but are slightly
shorter than type 180. They fit into Karas K series pens, Messenger, Kaweco Al Sport
& Lilliput, Loclen and many others. They are not available in a kit compatible housing
but the geometry and thread of the Bock housing is identical to type 180, therefore
makers of kitless pens are able to use the same thread taps if they wish to make
a pen with a shorter nib.
Beaufort Ink’s own ink converters fit all “standard international” fountain pens,
which includes almost every fountain pen kit currently available on the market and
all pens that take a “standard international” ink cartridge.
Manufactured for us in Germany to exacting standards and tolerances, and made from
the finest materials and components, they include specially designed, double sealed
pistons to prevent seepage and assist ink intake, and are as smooth as butter to
operate. They also feature smart nickel plated stainless steel seals and proudly
carry our own name as a mark of quality.
