Conventional fountain pen ink can consist of up to six types of ingredients:
- solvent (water)
- colorant (dyes)
- humectant (wetting)
- surfactant (flow)
- preservative (biocide)
- buffer (pH)
Our fountain pen ink has only three total components because our binding agent acts as humectant, surfactant, and preservative all in one. Our well-behaved ink flows medium-wet yet dries fairly quickly.
Our fountain pen ink is dispensed in a small 20 milliliter transport vial. We chose plastic vials over traditional glass bottles for several reasons:
- appropriate for storing chemical solutions
- leak proof
- shatter resistant
- easy to carry
- no bottleneck
Please remember to tighten the lid completely to prevent spills.
