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!

Such fun to use! April 18, 2014
Reviewer: Laurie Oberg from Salt Lake City, UT United States  
These pens are such fun to use. You can write with them as a typical fountain pen, or press the nib to split it and get a wider ink flow for thicker lines. I'm, just experimenting with calligraphy and having a blast with these pens. An amazing value, also.

Nearly fantastic April 4, 2014
Reviewer: Juan Ignacio García de Miguel from Madrid, Madrid Spain  
Close to her sister Konrad Flex. I was pretty interested in this refilling system. Nice and functional pen, although her flux is not as we try as her sister. But it's absolutely nice. And the service from The Goulet Pen is amazing. Outstanding. Superb! Thanks..,

Scratchy Nib April 4, 2014
Reviewer: Goh Zheng Ning from Singapore, Singapore Singapore  
The Ahab is an interesting pen to say the least. My experience so far with Noodler's pens are that the nibs always come really scratchy. I thought the Ahab may be different but it does have the same scartchy response.
