The Konrad flex pen was introduced in early 2012 - it is smaller than the Ahab, but larger than the Nib Creaper. It features a steel flexible #6 nib and a twist piston mechanism with a blind cap. The Konrad 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. We recommend watching our video (below) to see how heat-setting the nib/feed can help improve flow issues.

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!

Broken May 6, 2014
Reviewer: Shelby Mell from San Antonio , TX United States  
i received a broken pen but this was a great pen otherwise, i loved the shape but not so much the filling mechanism, i prefer the piston fill. they gave me a gift certificate to get another ahab.

Wow, what a disappointment May 4, 2014
Reviewer: Karl Doblinger from Weston, FL United States  
I have a Konrad (Ghostly Lapis) which is awesome and gets 5 stars.

This Konrad Narwhal is the biggest piece of junk (not even a Goulet nib helps). This thing is leaking from day one and there is nothing (short of epoxy glueing the feed and nib in, and I am not even sure THAT would work).
I will be using this pen to play darts. It may be better at that and earn another star that way.

Excellent pen March 31, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from CT  
This was my second Konrad flex pen. I loved my 1st one, and bought this one to ink with a different color. It worked great right out of the box -- smooth nib with nice flex.

Also, great service from Goulet as always -- thanks, guys!

Noodler's Narwhal March 28, 2014
Reviewer: Scott McCallister from Aurora, CO United States  
I got this pen with some other stuff from the good folks at Goulet.  The pics of this pen make it look like it is just a plain smoked translucent barrel, but to my delight, it is beautifully swirled!  the cap and blind-cap are more silver-gray than the pics show and have a lovely pearlescence. This is a decent flexer and the piston mechanism works awesome.  This particular Konrad doesn't post well, however.  You really have to jam the cap on the back and then it's not a really positive posting.  The feed on this was cut pretty wet and it works great for the nib it came with.  Good Pen!  Positive Purchase!
