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!

Not impressed with the pen July 21, 2014
Reviewer: Dan from Los Angeles, CA United States  
The piston was stuck inside its rear barrel.  Gouletpens was helpful, and after offering me advice on getting the piston unstuck gave me a full refund.  I understand that Noodler's built the pen for a $20 price point, but it should at least work.

Swapped nib for a Non-Flex Nib February 28, 2014
Reviewer: Dennis Fenrick from Seven Persons, AB Canada  
Nice pen, a bit wet for my taste even after replacing the Flex nib for a Noodler's Non-Flex Fine/Medium Nib.

I've watched the noodler's videos and think I've set things right, but it still writes a little wetter than I would like.  I bought a couple of these pens to mess around with and get a little better educated.   I'll continue to play around with this --- I certainly not ready to write-them-off.

Another awesome Konrad January 3, 2014
Reviewer: Samuel Fiorenza from Rockford, IL United States  
I own a couple of these Konrads, and I thoroughly enjoy each one.  The finish of this pen is stunning, and the clear window is helpful when it is time to refill the pen.

I don't care much for the Noodler's flex nibs, so I make it a rule to order a different nib whenever I order one of these, or one of the Noodler's Ahabs.  I have used both Goulet nibs and Monteverdes (#6s) with the Konrad and Ahab, and overall I enjoy the pen a great deal with these additions.  For the price, I suspect that I will over time add other colors/finishes of these Konrads to my collection.

Not Impressed December 19, 2013
Reviewer: Dave from Murrieta CA  
When this pen arrived I filled it with ink and started to write.  First, no in came out.  Cleaned it with ammonia mix.  Refilled.  Only way to get ink out is to turn the end of the pen as though discharging ink.  Then it bleeds ink, I have to wipe it and then it finally writes.  Dries up after each use and I have to repeat the bleeding process.  Not convenient and not fun.  I don't think a decent fountain pen can be made for $20.

Best buy ever November 19, 2013
Reviewer: susan henderson from Warnbro, W.A. Australia  
I bought this for my fiancée and he was thrilled with it. The service and the extras in the pack were greatly appreciated. He has said that from now on he will only deal with Goulet for his writing needs.....well done guys you are great thank you.
