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 fun pen to play with. July 22, 2014
Reviewer: LAN from United States  
You can't beat the price on this for a flex pen. I think of this as a beater pen, but fun!
The plastic of the barrel and cap is somewhat soft, but again, that is fine for an inexpensive pen like this.
It does have "a smell"- a strangely sweet smell like... pink industrial hand soap.
It flexes to about 1.6 mm for me, with a bit of effort. The feed keeps up with about three quick big flexes, but railroads on the fourth with a wet ink. This only happens to me in the flex "S" test, not when actually writing.
Definitely worth it.

First Impressions: Finicky, but that's the fun... July 22, 2014
Reviewer: Jay Karlson from Arlington, TX United States  
TONS of capacity as an eyedropper, but be careful with ink choice-- my first few inks flowed way too much. This is my first Ahab, so YMMV.

The section handles well and the cap posts nicely. Leaks a bit into the cap, but you can see it when that happens.

I've been told these were finicky, so just consider these comments 'initial impressions'.

Pie. Always Pie.

Ahab is my Mobi Dick July 13, 2014
Reviewer: Peter Marcinka from Neumarkt am Wallersee, Salzburg Austria  
I like the Agab. I like its size, the way it writes, the filling system, the ink capacity when converted to an eyedropper. However, I have two Ahabs (both are clear demonstrator) and one has inkl flow issues (the ink flow stops after a few lines) and the other one is a bit leaky. I will try heat setting and maybe some other tricks, but the price is very godd, so I might buy a new one :)
