Watch this cracking video – the Mistral explained

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 worthwhile (and yes, the grooves on the bushes are wear indicators)

Meet our new pen kit – the Beaufort Leveche

Available to buy right now on our website, the Leveche is the latest addition to our range of pen kits. Pronounced lev-esh, it is designed and engineered to our usual high standards of manufacture, and is currently offered in gold plate and chrome plate, as a fountain pen kit and as a rollerball kit. Other plating options may follow in time according to demand.

Take a look at the new Leveche here: http://www.beaufortink.co.uk/leveche.html
