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)
