The Ahab flex pen was introduced in late 2011 and is currently Noodler's largest and most popular fountain pen. It features a steel flexible #6 nib and a slide piston mechanism. If you'd like, you can even remove the piston mechanism and use the pen as an eyedropper for a massive 6ml ink capacity. The Ahab 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.

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!

Great Flex Nib Fountain Pen for starter September 17, 2014
Reviewer: Jeff Loo from Off Jalan Pudu, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia  
This is the first flex nib fountain pen that I own it . Lovely pen, ink flow is unexpectedly smooth and the flex function was great.

Super Fun! September 13, 2014
Reviewer: Jared Gour from Brookline, MA United States  
About that Noodler's pen smell, I actually like it. I find that it is sort of minty and organic.

I also did receive a free non-flex nib with this pen, which was a very pleasant surprise. I have yet to use it though.

I love how you can see the ink on top of the nib and how you can easily see the filler mechanism. It makes the pen look really neat.

The pump mechanism is super easy to use and clean. it fills and cleans the pen very quickly and I much prefer it to the traditional plunger style converters.

It is also very easy to swap the nib with other pens, even when loaded with ink. I often switch the flex nib out for the Goulet 1.5mm stub.

Very happy with this purchase.

Ahab clear demonstrator with FREE extra nib September 10, 2014
Reviewer: Donald L Johnson from Wolfeboro, NH United States  
I am pleased with the product -- but ordering it was very difficult--- I received this in an Email
SPECIAL OFFER FOR A LIMITED TIME
Starting August 5, 2014 we are offering a FREE non-flexible fine/medium nib with the purchase of an Ahab Clear Demonstrator fountain pen.  The pen will come with the Noodler’s flexible nib, that you love, ready to use, however it will also come with the additional non flexible nib.
But this special deal never appeared on The Goulet site --
The distributor assured me that Goulet was shipped the pens and the free nibs
I complained to your customer service and was told that since the deal did not originate with Goulet you were not going to offer it.
I assume you are going put the free nibs in stock and sell them
To not offer your customers a good deal that is available because it was NIH is poor customer service and a Violation of the Goulet Mission Statement
I hope you are going to share this with Brian

Noodler September 8, 2014
Reviewer: Karen Powell from Calgary, AB Canada  
I totally love this pen and especially love the fact that I can use the silicone grease and fill the cap.  I can write forever and not run out of ink.  The nib flows nicely, isn't sticky.  I'm happy, fits in my hand well.  Although I can see the amount of ink in the pen, I'm disappointed that I ordered the clear pen because it always looks somewhat messy, but that isn't your fault.  It's mine.  Thank you

Aha works great September 5, 2014
Reviewer: Stuart Garlock from Willoughby, OH United States  
Pen worked out of the box with no adjustments needed. There is a bit of a learning curve the first time you disassemble it but it's not hard to figure out with a little bit of tinkering.
