Welcome to Stonecott Fine Writing Supplies Ltd, an online shop for fountain pens, ink and associated bits and bobs.

We are proud to say that we were the first UK seller of BENU fountain pens. For further information on these lovely pens check out the BENU website here.

We also stock pens from artisan manufacturers in North America; these are the Tailored Pen Company from Kentucky, USA (their website is here) and Butterknife Creations from Ontario, Canada (their website is here).

We also have a pen and matching pen case from an Italian artisan company called Venvstas (pronounced Ven-oo-stas). These stunning pens and cases are handmade from linear carbon fibre, with stainless steel and lead-free brass fittings and titanium nibs, with a gold nib available as an option for special order.

Read more about the Magna, the other items they make and the company history at the Venvstas website here.

We are also among the first UK sellers of Krishna inks; we currently stock the RC Series and the India Series, and have a few bottles remaining from the now-discontinued Super Rich Series. Krishna also produce several other ranges and we have plans to stock those in the future. For further information about Krishna inks you can view their website here.

We hope you enjoy your shopping experience!


We’re excited to say we’ve been able to re-stock the full range of inks from those wonderful Italian artisans at Venvstas! These are some of the lovely inks in the line-up:

Many of you will already have heard the sad news, but the South West Pen Show for 2022 has been cancelled. This is a blow to all of us, but especially to us here at Stonecott as this is our local pen show!

This show was due to be the first of 2022 and to take place at a new venue in Bristol, but has had to be cancelled as the venue in question has just announced that it will be closed to the public for the whole of 2022!

Unfortunately this left the team at UK Pen Shows very little time to find a new venue and although they tried their hardest it was not to be, nothing suitable was available at such short notice.

They will now throw all their efforts into making the London Spring Pen Show, in March, a roaring success.


We have recently partnered with not one, but two, organisations to help us in our quest to give something back to this wonderful planet of ours.

First, as shown by the new banner at the head of this page, we have partnered with Tree Nation to offset not just our products, but also the carbon generated by our team and by our website! Every month we have one or more trees planted to offset the carbon generated by our team; every few hundred clicks on the website generates a message to plant a tree to offset the carbon released; and for each item sold we plant a tree on behalf of our customers! More can be read about Tree Nation on their website, at this link.

In addition to this we have partnered with Sustainable Global Gardens, a small organisation that plant trees to not only offset carbon but to give farmers in poor areas around the world some much-needed income. At the end of each month we send a payment to SGG to ensure one fruit tree is planted for every order received during the month. Fruit trees have been chosen because They don’t just offset carbon, they also produce a viable and valuable crop for the farmers to generate some income. More information is available at SGG’s website, here.

You’ll also be able to read much more detail about these organisations when we publish our Sustainability Charter, which is being drafted right now, and which will be stored on a new Sustainability page on the site when ready.
