Having launched our brand new Sirocco pen kit at the end of June, we thought it was high time we mentioned it in our blog – in fact long overdue.
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 mechanism can no longer get stranded inside the pen if it’s taken apart the wrong way. Not only that, the quality of the mechanism, combined with the high standards of engineering used to make the components that go into the pen, result in a high end kit that has been acknowledged by our customers as being well balanced, comfortable to write with, and possibly smoother in operation than any other single barrel pen kit out there.
Because it’s tube is the same as a Sierra tube, it means that a huge choice of pre-made or pre-cast pen blanks is available for the Sirocco, from the many, many artisan blank makers around the world. It is therefore not only a pleasure to make, and a pleasure to write with, but extremely versatile too.
Supplied with a Beaufort Ink parker style refill, the Sirocco is available in a choice of plating options, so why not visit our online shop and check it out.
The Beaufort Sirocco is available in three different plating options, and we’ll be adding more options over the coming weeks and months.
