Lennon Tool Bar Nahu on Rhodia

Ink

Lennon Tool Bar is a Taiwanese company founded in 2014. Their focus is on producing and promoting the craft of indigo dying. Then they started producing fountain pen inks, and were known for their beautiful blue inks.

Nahu is an ink from Lennon Tool Bar’s Indigo Series. During the Edo bakufu (also known as Tokugawa shogunate or Edo shogunate), a period of feudal military government in Japan from 1603 to 1868, colours were regulated. Specific colours were reserved for specific groups of people, allowing easy identification. Nahu is a colour reserved for a government position known as “nando kata”. I couldn’t find much information other that it seemed to some sort of accountant or clerk position.

In writing, this light blue ink has a wet flow. There is shading and no sheen. On Rhodia paper, there is no feathering and a little bleedthrough.
