Lennon Tool Bar Saira (秋刀魚) fountain pen ink is a shading grey color. Autumn is commonly associated with the harvesting season of rice. But it is also the harvesting season for Pacific saury, when they migrate with the Oyashio Current to the subtropical region of the Kuroshio area, including the east coast of Taiwan. It is said that Pacific saury with a yellowish mouth or tail are more fresh and have a higher lipid concentration. Additionally, Pacific saury are known as the "autumn knife fish" in regard to its body shape and the metal-gray of its scales.
The 2019 Autumn Limited Series (2019秋季限定) is inspired by the Autumn season.
Lennon Tool Bar was founded in 2014 at Tamsui, Taiwan. Initially they produced
and promoted the art and craft of Indigo Dyeing, a business that flourished a century ago when Taiwan exported a considerable amount of “doroai” — or the raw material of colorants used in Indigo Dyeing — to the Japanese Empire. In recent years, Lennon Tool Bar has launched a series of fountain pen inks in order to popularize colors used in Indigo Dyeing and to present the enduring beauty of traditional workmanship.
