New Pen Suppliers Kits/Inks PDF Print E-mail

Last year (2014) I found two new suppliers of Pen making parts/kits.

The first was Taylors Mirsfield.

Dan is a supplier of pen kits designed by himself and sold in this country.

He already has pens on the market and some more in the consultation stage.

In the consultation stage he accepts input from customers regarding the features you would like to see incorporated in the new design. This helped him design, and have manufactured  the first 2 pens in his list.

There is a comprehensive list of his stock on the website.


The other supplier that I must mention is Beaufort Ink.

This is a supplier of inks and I can say they are the best refills I have ever used.

A full selection can be seen on their website and facebook pages

Update 20th January 2015

The latest consignment of OMEGA pen kits have arrive at  Taylors Mirsfield. The order consists of Rollerball and Fountain Pen Kits in Chrome, Upgrade Gold and Gunmetal.

Pre Orders for the new platings are now being accepted via e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

With this order two of the new design pen kits arrived one of which is shown below,



Also, here is a picture of the Gold and Chrome Zeta Pen kits made up by jameshj and kindly shown with his permission


And a quick update from Beaufort Ink.

The pen stands are now back in stock after the embarrassment of running out in December.

There is now a stock of 60ml Gorilla Glue and Gorilla 5 Minute Epoxy available on site, both are well below the RRP and certainly vastly less than the huge amount charged by certain other well known suppliers.

Phil is now looking into supplying ink for fountain pens. As the performance of the fountain pen ink is governed, to a large extent, by the quality of the nib, he is also looking into supplying nibs as well. So hopefully, in the not too distant future, he may be able to introduce the two together.
