His method was to turn the oak to a size smaller than the bushes, apply the gold leaf – one of them here is yellow gold,

Our thanks to John Clothier for allowing us to share his recent video on the Beaufort Mistral. John very clearly explains the Mistral fountain pen kit, part by part, and after turning the barrels from his own hybrid cast blanks he then goes on to demonstrate the correct procedure for assembling the components in the pen press. And what a lovely pen he makes too. You can see Mistral pens kits on our website here: But do have a look at John’s video too – it’s well

Custom pens just got easier

19 Oct 2017 14:00:00 Phil - Full article...

If you make custom pens, often called kitless pens, or it’s something you’ve been considering and been daunted by the prospect, we’ve just made things a whole lot easier. We have introduced a range of ready-made sections for fountain pens, that are already engineered and threaded to take Bock nibs. The section is the component into which the nib assembly is screwed, and is possibly the most complicated element of making a pen from first principles. Made by Bock

Introducing our new Sirocco pen kit

17 Aug 2017 16:00:00 Phil - Full article...

The Sirocco, like all our other pens kits, is designed by us and manufactured to our usual high standards and tolerances. It uses exactly the same size of tube as a Sierra kit, but there the similarity with a Sierra stops. Unlike a Sierra, the Sirocco has its twist mechanism mounted in the finial, not in the nib, which means that the

HRH Princess Sophie Countess of Wessex has recently taken over from the Queen as Patron of the Blind Veterans Association. To mark the occasion of her visit to open their new Llandudno centre, the Association decided they would present Sophie with a hand made pen, and Bill Mooney, a member of the Association who is both a veteran and almost totally blind, was asked to make it.
