Our innovative refillable rollerball nib takes a “Standard International” ink converter or ink cartridge, and therefore can be refilled in just the same way as a fountain pen. Available with a black or chromed finish, they are ideal for makers of kitless pens or custom pens, and many pen kits can also be adapted to accept them..









Beaufort Ink’s own ink converters fit our refillable rollerball nib, and all “standard international” fountain pens, which includes almost every fountain pen kit currently available on the market and all pens that take a “standard international” ink cartridge.

Manufactured for us in Germany to exacting standards and tolerances, and made from the finest materials and components, they include specially designed, double sealed pistons to prevent seepage and assist ink intake, and are as smooth as butter to operate. They also feature smart nickel plated stainless steel seals and proudly carry our own name as a mark of quality.

Tapco thread taps for refillable rollerball nib

A great idea for kitless rollerballs and for modifying existing fountain pens, our refillable rollerball nibs feature tungsten carbide balls with stainless steel tips. They are compatible with any “standard international” ink converter or ink cartridge, including our own Premium Ink Converter.

They require a 6.5 x 0.5 thread and are ideal for kitless pens.

Many size 5 fountain pen kits can also be modified to take these nibs by chasing out the internal thread of the kit’s nib section, however we cannot accept liability for any modifications carried out.
