The Konrad flex pen was introduced in early 2012 - it is smaller than the Ahab, but larger than the Nib Creaper. It features a steel flexible #6 nib and a twist piston mechanism with a blind cap. The Konrad is made of a celluloid derivative and is technically biodegradable and formed from a "renewable resource".

The Noodler's flex pens were designed for the hands-on tinkerer - they are made to be taken apart and adjusted. The nib and feed pull right out and can be adjusted for optimal performance. Don't be afraid to get a little ink on your fingers while you learn how to use this pen. We recommend watching our video (below) to see how heat-setting the nib/feed can help improve flow issues.

As a simple rule of thumb for writing with a flex pen, just apply slight pressure on your downstrokes, which will spread the tines and increase the line width, achieving that optimal line variation. Make sure to go slowly so that the ink can keep up with your writing. As with any flex pen, it just takes practice!

Due to the residual machining oils used when cutting the feeds for these pens, we highly encourage you to give the pen a good flush before use. We recommend any of the following options: distilled water, water with a touch of dish soap, a pre-packaged pen flush, or a solution of 10% clear ammonia to water. This should resolve most ink flow issues!

Neat pen for the money July 22, 2014
Reviewer: Alex Graven from Stone Mountain, GA United States  
Gotta admit, I'm set to thinker with this. Fills and writes kind of well. Trying to get the hang of flexing the nib and writing. A bit wetter than I'd like, but this is totally a user problem and not a pen problem - for non-flexed writing, it's perfect.

Great starter pen. This one got me hooked on fountain pens.

Great service, great product! May 12, 2014
Reviewer: Kit Hoong Tan from Petaling Jaya, Selangor Malaysia  
So this is my first order with Gouletpens and I must say I'm completely happy with the order. I wasn't home when my package arrived and let me tell you my postman actually chucked the package over my gate into my driveway. Luckily with the extreme packaging that you folks provide, everything was just fine inside. And thanks for the lollipop! I'll certainly purchase from you guys again!

It's my first fountain pen and it does not make me feel any difficulty to begin with.

Noodler's Konrad February 18, 2014
Reviewer: Peter Fischer from Svaty Jur, Slovakia  
I was convinced that Creaper is almost the best pen I've ever had. I was quite disappointed with Ahab and Creaper was kind of small for me (not mentioning that smell!), but Konrad is "refunding" the ink flow failure of Ahab and also the small size of Creaper. And for that small price!

Now, after several days of Konrad usage I can say that - except of Waterman vintage flex pens - it is the best pen I can use for everyday writing and also for kind of calligraphy.

Noodler's Konrad Black Pearl December 11, 2013
Reviewer: Brendon from Michigan  
I just received my pen and although I'm very happy with the pen itself I would like to point out that the pen isn't so much "black pearl" as "dark brown pearl". It looks much more like a graphite color in the pictures here, but the one I received looks more like a deep coffee brown color with the sparkles of pearlessence.
