Thread taps for Bock fountain pen nibs

Not only are our nibs world leaders, so are our taps. High quality nibs and pens deserve high quality taps - no far eastern cheap imports here, our taps are made specially for us from M2 HSS steel by TapCo, the globally acclaimed precision thread cutting specialists. They are available individually - starter, intermediate and plug (bottoming) or as a money saving set of three.

We have thread taps to facilitate the internal threading of fountain pen sections for custom pens or so called kitless pen, to suit all sizes of Bock nib housings . Experienced pen makers will appreciate the quality and precision of our taps, and understand the value and function of all three types.

If you need a hand deciding what you need, feel free to get in touch - we are more than happy to help.
