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 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!

Flex Pen September 25, 2014
Reviewer: Adrian Attard from Lija, Malta Malta  
I am very satisfied with Noodler's Ahab Flex pen. I am still trying it out as this is my first time using a flexible nib and am enjoying it.

For $20... wow. September 24, 2014
Reviewer: Alec Corey from Greenville, NC United States  
Considering what I payed (two as gifts.. except I kept one and need a 3rd now!) these pens are finely crafted with a smooth flexible nib which allows great line variation. You will likely get your hands inky during a fill but once the nib is positioned right it flows flawlessly and contains plenty of ink for hours of writing.

Word of advice; this is a fiddler's pen. It may not work perfectly straight after a fill. Also, there's a hard to see crevice for the nib which I've gotten away without using.. but it works well using it. Yes, good pen as I expect from the great Noodler's.

What can be said for the world's most hackable pen September 23, 2014
Reviewer: David Lockwood from Elk Grove, CA United States  
that hasn't already be said.  I'm certain Nathan would hate that term if not that concept.  Once Noodler's began selling feeds and flex nibs I felt freedom to go to it.  I thought one of my Ahabs was not taking full advantage of the nib.  I watched Nathan's video on using a Dremel tool to open up the feed and off I went.  I now have a pen that rivals my Waterman 12's and 52's as well as Mabie Todd Swan.  Cool!

Noodler's Ahab Flex Fountain Pen September 18, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Flemington, NJ United States  
A nice looking pen with a generous ink reservoir. But the nib, which in my opinion makes or breaks a pen, is horrible--stiff and scratchy. Compare that with the writing experience of a $20 Lamy, and you know what I mean.

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.
