The Nib Creaper (also known as the "Standard Flex Pen") was the first fountain pen produced by Noodler's, introduced in 2010, and is Noodler's smallest and slimmest fountain pen. It features a steel flexible #2 nib and a twist piston mechanism. A small ink window shows how much ink is left in your pen. These pens are made from a celluloid derivative.

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!

We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material, expect some variation in the pattern from what you see here. But hey, that just makes each pen unique!

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 Gift for a Friend April 6, 2013
Reviewer: Bryan W. from Mount Pleasant, MI United States  
This pen was a gift for a fountain pen nut friend or mine. Based on his comments, this was a great gift - an inexpensive yet reliable pen that allows for a fun writing experience. I am a pen novice and I have a similar Noodler's pen so I feel safe saying that this pen is great for all stages of fountain pen fever - from beginners to old pros.

Nice line but dries up quickly January 6, 2013
Reviewer: Mary Dransfield from North Clarendon, VT United States  
The flex nib is fun to use and gives an excellent flex line.  I find the nib a little stiffer than I expected but it still performs well.  However, I find that every time I pick up this pen, it won't work due to dryness, even if I have used it the day before and secured the cap tightly.  Once it gets going it's okay but keeping it flowing is a pain.

Crazy kind of love November 28, 2012
Reviewer: Cassandra  
I really love this pen. It writes well - so far I've not had any problems. The one thing that drives me crazy is the screw cap... I've never been fond of them and am afraid I might break it trying to pull the cap off; I knew that going into this and it's a small annoyance for a nice and inexpensive pen.
