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.
On footnotes paper,

This was written with a TWSBI ECO-T medium nib.
