I just received this bottle in the mail today. Lennon Tool Bar, I think it’s a one-man studio which based in Taipei, Taiwan. I thought it was fun to try some small studios’ ink that might be the reason why I got it.
Since it’s a small studio ink, I tried with dipping pen to avoid all the possible clotting or damage to the pen.
Very interesting color – I actually wonder if this contains iron gall since it changed color from light purple to mid blue. Not as dark as it claimed or the name told (which should be a very dark grayish blue) Took me more than 25 seconds to dry (the fact was, I forgot to click the timer and when I realized, it was already over 25 sec) Not very saturated but give pretty shading. Surprisingly this has some water resistant (again, that’s another reason why I wonder if it contains iron gall) and didn’t bleed through iPaper UCCU or DoubleA.
CP value: 80/100, I’m not sure how stable it is and how safe it is with fountain pen…. but good color!
