Handmade in Pennsylvania

Monotonic is a versatile ink-channel solution that expedites fountain pen testing, tuning, maintenance, and cleaning. Our gentle, handmade formula streamlines similar operations at the workshop and is compatible with all fountain pens. Containing zero dyes or pigments, Monotonic is designed with components of a standard fountain pen ink vehicle to leverage the utility of a writing backbone without the extra attention required to work around colorant. 

The solution will safely air-dry after use or operate as the segue to a new ink while still damp with a minimal impact on performance and hue. 

• Don't wait for an air-dry after a thorough pen flush to fire up your pen. Instead, run a few milliliters of Monotonic through the complete ink channel and then fill up with your favorite ink right away with minimal operational impact. 

• Clear away tap water impurities introduced during a pen flush and keep the ink channel crystal clean with Monotonic.  Built with a highly purified water diluent and components otherwise used to manufacture fountain pen ink, our elixir won't leave a trace of harmful residue. 

• Gauge the smoothness of a new nib using a quick dip-test without the time-consuming flush and clean-up. A brief immersion into Monotonic will saturate a nib and feeder, providing the lubrication required to test point properties on paper.

 • Use Monotonic to fill the ink reservoir and lubricate a nib while maintaining a crystal clear line of sight on the point while tuning or polishing, cleanly testing between frictional interludes. 

Monotonic is built with a highly purified water diluent and a delicate mixture of humectant, lubricant, and preservative. Our formula DOES NOT contain ammonia or bleach.

Each unit comes prepared in an amber glass 120mL dropper bottle with a foiled gift box.
