Nibs

The nibs I have chosen to use are bock nib systems. Bock nibs offer the quality and diverse range that I need to produce a quality product. They offer the nib and feed system as a unit. They are paired and tested before they leave the factory for optimum performance. There is a choice of size 5 or size 6 nibs.

Ink

I like Beaufort inks range. I find the ink flows well and and the colors they provide offer a range for the formal to the more playful. 2 x 10 ml vials of this ink are provided with every fountain pen in a choice of colors - black, blue black, blue, dark green, green and red.

Packaging

All of my packaging material is re-used. The box I sourced from an industrial manufacturing company in my area. These originally were for high end valves and are the perfect fit for my pens. The packing, to keep everything secure, is recycled paper shredded into strips. This keeps everything secure and protected during transport. I took the decision to reuse packaging mainly as I wanted to add as little waste to the environment as possible. It also has the added bonus of being absolutely free which allows me to produce a high quality, handcrafted, sustainable product at a reasonable price.
