Lennon Tool Bar Oyster (蚵仔) fountain pen ink is an subtle grey color with hints of blue. Oysters used to be the plankton clinging to reefs or empty shells left by their ancestors around the mid-autumn. They keep filtering the ocean and observing how the moon affects the tides until their hard shells are drilled and shucked by hungry eaters. This is when the oysters devote themselves to extending others' lives.
Oyster is a Lennon Tool Bar's 2020 Winter Limited Ink.
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.
