Why fine steel wool is not always fine

Phil - Beaufort Ink - 15 Jul 2021 10:00:00Full article...
Good old plain and simple steel wool isn’t actually as plain and simple as you might think. For a start, it’s quite a complicated product to make, although I realise that’s not especially important from the end user’s point of view. What is important however is that there is no level playing field when it comes to grading steel wool, so you aren’t necessarily getting what you think you’re getting, and I’ll explain why not in just a moment. As blogs go, ...

Pen turning is a popular hobby amongst many, and a legitimate means of earning or supplementing a living for others. It has now found its way onto no lesser platform than the world political stage, and you know you’ve arrived when it’s you who’s been asked to make the pens. As part of the program to involve local and regional artisans to provide a range of products for the G7 Summit, from the chairs they'll be sitting on, to the coffee they’ll be drinking, David ...

Thread taps needn't be confusing.

Phil - Beaufort Ink - 17 Sep 2020 09:00:00Full article...
There are choices to be made when you're buying thread taps for making custom pens, or so called kitless pens or bespoke pens. Unless you have a little engineering experience, it can be difficult to know the differences between each type of thread tap and what they're used for, so below is a simple explanation of each one, to help you decide which type or types you need. Essentially, there are three main types - the underlying tool is the same thing in each case, but some of the ...
<a href='/blog/all-about-ipg-fountain-pen-nibs-they-are-not-all-what-you-might-think'>All about IPG fountain pen nibs - they are not all what you might think</a>
From time to time I spot ill informed and sometimes frankly misleading explanations of so called IPG nibs on line, including on occasions, on websites run by people selling pens and nibs. It seems it's high time then, that one of the most widely perpetuated myths about fountain pen nibs is dispelled. If you’re new to fountain pens, or pen making, or you’ve never looked into nibs very much, the following might come as a surprising revelation to you, and if you already have an ...

It’s always rewarding to work with up and coming professional pen makers, several of whom go on to the giddy heights of commercial production. And so it is with the totally affable and multi talented Charles Lethaby, who is already well known in certain circles for his unique ranges of electric lighting, which take centre stage in many a posh hotel, designer shop and exclusive home throughout the land, and far beyond. Charles has now also applied his creative mind to fountain pens, and ...

What will Brexit mean for our overseas customers?

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

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, ...

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. But when you have this view to feast your eyes on every time you look up from your computer screen, life can't be too bad can it! 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 ...

Melody Berry
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.

Noah Joubert
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.

Tim McKenzie
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.

Ken Runciman

Alan Reynolds
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.
