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 themselves, our new range of sections takes away the need for all the maths and geometric calculations, not to mention the need to cut both male and female threads on a wafer thin component. They represent a transition between pens made from kits and full custom pens, and still allow the maker complete freedom of design whilst removing a lot of the headaches.
Available for size 5 and size 6 nibs, we have them in stock on a wide range of platings and finishes, and are on our website to order right now.
