<a href='/blog/triple-lead-thread-taps-and-dies-now-in-stock'>Triple lead thread taps and dies now in stock</a>
Great news for makers of kitless pens or custom pens. Triple start threads, or triple lead threads are popular amongst pen makers because it means the  pen cap can be removed or replaced with fewer turns.  Whereas, depending on the length of your thread,  it takes several turns of the cap to screw it on with a single start thread, a triple start thread will do it in a couple of turns or less and is far more professional that way. They’re not cheap, but there again ...

Our latest extravagant indulgence has arrived at last, a Baoer 388 for which we had to splash out a massive £1.97  –  delivered. Rediculous!! And what a great little pen it is – we can’t fault its appearance, balance, feel in the hand and so on, but the nib is truly horrible. Nothing wrong with its looks –  well, we could live with it anyway, considering what we paid for it. Nothing wrong with the ink flow either, but scratchy? Scratchy is not the ...

Kelvin and his wife Christine at Pittswood Crafts kindly sent us this image, which we think is well worth sharing. Kelvin has turned a Jr Gent rollerball from one of our unique wine cask blanks and Christine has used her considerable talents to stage and photograph it. Well done both, and thanks for your kind permission to share the photo, which is worthy of any high class lifestyle magazine in our opinion.   Jr Gent turned from a Beaufort reclaimed wine cask pen blank – ...

This is our brand new size 5 fountain pen nib, which is supplied as standard with all Beaufort Mistral fountain pen kits, and will also be available to buy on line within the next few days. We promised elsewhere that we’d publish a bit of information about it, so here it is. Nearly all pen kits are supplied with a so called IPG nib, so called because they are engraved “Iridium Point Germany”. Nothing is further from the truth as they don’t have an iridium point, nor ...

<a href='/blog/notes-on-making-a-section-for-a-bock-size-5-nib-housing'>Notes on making a section for a Bock size 5 nib housing</a>
We frequently get requests for advice regarding the correct proceedure for making fountain pen sections for Bock nib housings, particularly regarding size 5 nibs, which appear to give more trouble than the size 6 ones. Standard practice when establishing the correct drill size for thread taps is to subtract the pitch from the diameter. In the case of a Bock size 5 housing, that would work out as 6.4 – 0.6 = 5.8However, the very bottom of the housing has a tiny non-threaded area ...

Upgrading a Kaigelu 316 nib

Phil - 24 Feb 2016 09:00:00Full article...
Our Bock size 6 nibs are a perfect fit if you want to upgrade the nib in the ever popular Kaigelu 316 fountain pen The existing nib and housing can pretty easily be knocked out. Although the Kaigelu 316 has a threaded Section, the housing is not threaded and is lightly glued in place. A Bock size 6 nib in a Bock housing can then be fitted in its place, which again does not interact with the pen's Section thread, but is an excellent push fit with no glue required. You will also need to ...

Refillable rollerball nibs

Phil - 20 Jan 2016 14:00:00Full article...
Introducing our refillable rollerball nibs. A strange concept? No, a good one. Our innovative refillable rollerball nibs take a “Standard International” ink converter or ink cartridge, and therefore can be refilled in just the same way as a fountain pen. Available with a black or chromed finish, they are ideal for makers of kitless pens or custom pens, and many pen kits can also be adapted to accept them. Needless to say, we have the corresponding thread taps to match, and you ...

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.

High praise for Beaufort Ink for brilliant customer service and a lovely nib - I really should put them on speed dial. I'm fussy with nibs and they've come to the rescue again. They always take time to give brilliant advice and they're just a really nice guys.

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.
