Beaufort Ink set themselves a high standard for product and service, then they hold themselves to that standard. I've always had great service and also very helpful telephone support when I had no idea what I was really needing. There's really is no reason for me to consider buying from anyone else.

Great service and delivery - I am very happy with the new nib I bought. I called them as I was uncertain about which would be the right one, but I got through to the owner who was very helpful and swiftly solved my query.

Perhaps the classiest pen kits in the business and a great source for kitless building as well.

Nick Buckley
Without remembering who specifically took care of my order, I just have to say how pleased I am and simply blown away by the quality of service. I ordered a hand-full of products and must have mistakenly selected one incompatible item. My package arrived with a handwritten note and the piece that I'd meant to purchase. Thank you, I'm truly appreciative.

Not only are Beaufort Ink's parts and kits of superb quality but the sales and after sales service is outstanding. I cannot rate the company highly enough - they ooze integrity and good service as well as quality products. Buy from them, and you cant go wrong.
5/5

Our market leading Mistral pen kits are the only pen kits avialable worldwide with truly matching fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint and pencil. Each type of kit is available to buy individually, so that you can create a matched set of pens (or pen and pencil) in any combination you choose.

Why is that a thing? Well,  if you offer a rollerball to someone who normally uses a fountain pen, they're likely to turn up their nose. Fountain pen people simply don't write with rollerballs, and rollerball people don't write with fountain pens. And yet, if you look around at pen kits, that all you can usually get - a fountain pen matched with a rollerball. What pen owners want is a matching fountain pen and a pencil, or maybe a rollerball and a pencil, or perhaps a fountain pen and a ballpoint. You get the picture. They'll use them both, but they're extremely unlikely to use them both if the pens are a fountain pen and a rollerball.

Mistral pen kits were designed by us, from the bottom up, to offer matching pens and pencils in any combination. They're not just modified as an afterthought, they were designed right from the start to look the same.

You can mix and match with Mistral pen kits. They're high quality kits, not just cheap offerings with cheap plating and cheap mechanisms. And they do match. And that's the point.
