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

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

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.

Take a look at our view of the world

Having been spoiled with the scenic value of the Highlands of Scotland for the past several yeras, do we miss it? Yes, of course we do.

Exmoor is beautiful, and our little part of it, looking straight down the Exe Valley, frankly takes a lot of beating.   Exmoor in late winter. The view from our office
