Welcome to Manuscript #12

I'm delighted to welcome you to Manuscript 12 - the latest newsletter from Bespoke British Pens. As usual, it's packed with news and details of new releases from BBP.

Kingsman is back!

In addition to the pens provided for 'Darkest Hour', the upcoming new British film about Winston Churchill mentioned in Manuscript 11, we have also produced all the pens for the second Kingsman film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle which is due for release in late September in the UK and early October in the USA.

Like the first film (see left), the new film features several Conway Stewart 'Kingsman' pens which are loosely based on the Churchill model. It stars Colin Firth (back from the dead, it seems), Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Vinnie Jones and Elton John. (It sounds unlikely, but apparently it's true!)

The new Kingsman pens are once again engraved with the cryptic 'Oxfords not Brogues' message. We will let you have full details of the pens' release in a future issue of Manuscript.

Wellington Classic Claret

Everyone who has seen this new version of the Wellington has been struck by the natural beauty of the Claret Claret acrylic. It's a complex combination with a luxurious mix of marbled burgundy and black tones and the occasional highlight of white pearl showing through. The traditional gold-plated Conway Stewart clip adds an elegant touch and combined with the solid gold rings at the top of the nib holder and on the top of the barrel, gives a true luxury feel to the pen. 

If you'd like to add the Wellington Classic Claret to your collection you'll need to hurry - there are only 2 left!

Two new Raleigh models

One of the great surprises we have found in working with the stock of components we purchased from the Conway Stewart factory sale, has been the unpredictability of what we find. Because we were unsure what these particular models were they were looked over for many months and sat on a shelf in our stockroom.

Late last year Peter, our Production Director. decided to do some investigation and discovered the history of the Raleigh and we all agreed that they would make superb additions to our range. And voila!  Conway Stewart Raleigh Pistachio

Marvellous Marlboroughs

We have just released details of two new Marlborough models - in Classic Green and Meteor and they both look superb. I know opinion is divided on green pens. Some people love them, others can live without them. One thing is for sure... there is no finer pen than the Conway Stewart Marlborough in Classic Green - unless of course you are a red pen fiend, in which case the Meteor cannot be beaten! The choice is yours.
