DiamondCast pen blanks now fully re-stocked

4 Feb 2020 10:00:00 Phil - Beaufort Ink - Full article...

DiamondCast pen blanks tend to fly out of our door pretty quickly. Why are they so popular? Well, if you’ve never come across them before, you won’t know that DiamondCast pen blanks are made from polyurethane, and coloured using iridescent mica powders, which produce a wonderful chatoyance inside the resin. Not only that, the major point about them is that they contain jewellery grade, real diamond particles, which result in an absolutely outstanding sparkle in the finished

What will Brexit mean for our overseas customers?

28 Jan 2020 22:00:00 Phil - Beaufort Ink - Full article...

Whether you’re happy about Brexit or sad, for it or against, cheering from the rooftops or crying into your beer, the immutable fact is that the UK is leaving the EU this coming Friday. So what are the implications for our many, many customers who live in the EU? What is going to change when you buy from Beaufort Ink? Err, well, nothing actually. The situation is that when we leave the EU at midnight on 31st January, the UK will immediately enter into a transition period for the

Happy Christmas from Beaufort Ink

24 Dec 2019 10:00:00 Phil - Beaufort Ink - Full article...

A bit of downtime for us as we stop for a few days over the festive period. It's been quite a year - we've moved premises  - twice, and we've had our busiest year ever. Our website will be open for business as usual over the festive period, and we'll be back to work on 2nd January. It's you, our customers who've given us our busiest year ever though, and we'd like to take this opporunity to thank you for all the support you've given us, and to wish you

My word - what talented customers we have!

Take a look at Garcia-Deschacht and the amazing handmade fountain pens they produce. We’ve been working with Laura and Andy since the start of their journey, supplying them with tooling, fountain pen nibs, pen blanks, ink converters etc. We came across an interview the other day, which we thought you may like to read too - what absolutely beautiful pens they produce (and not a bad showcase for some of our products either, it has to be said). Without a doubt, one of a kind,

Upgrading the nib in a Kaweco Dia2 fountain pen

25 Sep 2019 08:00:00 Phil - Beaufort Ink - Full article...

Who knew you could fit a larger nib in a Kaweco? Most Kaweco fountain pens are supplied with a short nib - a Bock type 060 in fact, which on the Dia2 looks, well, just wrong. (Sorry Kaweco) The good thing about the Dia2 though, in common with a lot of their other marques, is that the nib is in a standard Bock size 5 housing, which means that you can screw in a different Bock nib as a direct replacement. In any instance where you want to fit a bigger nib, you have to be sure that there is

Our pen kit bags are now recyclable

18 Sep 2019 22:00:00 Phil - Beaufort Ink - Full article...

What can we do about all those annoying little plastic bags we send out in their hundreds and thousands each week that contain the parts of our pen kits? We've been puzzling our little minds with this dilemma for some time. We're very aware that most of our pen kit bags probably end up in the bin, and consequently in landfill (or worse) and you'd have to live on a different planet not to realise the harm they cause to our own planet. So... Firstly, we tested paper bags. Hmmm -

Please bear with us whilst we move

2 Aug 2019 21:00:00 Phil - Full article...

What? Moving again? Yes, but to permanent premises this time. We moved back in January, and have spent the last 6 months working hard, but able to enjoy the peaceful and beautiful surroundings of Exmoor, in the south west of England. However, relocating from the Highlands of Scotland to the south west of England, as we did, was a mighty undertaking, and the premises we've been occupying in the meantime have been rented. Our short term lease has now expired, and we've used the

Gold/gunmetal Sirocco pen kits back in stock

2 May 2019 09:00:00 Phil - Full article...

We're mightily relieved to see these kits back in stock after running out over Easter. Our hugely popular gold & gunmetal Sirocco pen kits are back in stock - Phew! The Beaufort Sirocco is the original British designed pen kit to use Sierra compatible tubes. What's the advantage of Sierra compatible tubes? Well, it means that all the masses of pen blanks out there, cast on Sierra tubes by the many, many blank makers in the pen making comunity, will all fit a Sirocco pen kit.
