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!

AMAZING! Bang for $! March 16, 2014
Reviewer: Jacqueline Cruz from Los Angeles, CA United States  
This pen is so flexible. It's a beautiful color and it looks very classy. Works well with Noodler's ink. Best bang for your buck!

Very fine pen February 12, 2014
Reviewer: David from TX United States  
I bought my Konrad Flex pen a few weeks ago, and I really like it.  And for $20!  How can you go wrong with a $20 pen of this quality?  Service from Goulet Pens was outstanding.  I will be buying more pens from them soon.

Noodlers Konrad June 1, 2013
Reviewer: Ray C from UK  
Nice Size, Good Weight - but produced blobs even after flushing. Disassembled nib, scrubbed section clean with toothbrush, dried, reassembled and OK so far. Flex gets better with use. I was searching for a good pen to use on newspaper crosswords and this seems to do the job, little feathering or bleed with Pelikan Green. (Note not all agree on this!)

Avoid the Konrads!! April 15, 2013
Reviewer: Robert J. Boyle from Carlisle, PA United States  
I gifted this pen to a friend.  After a successful fill, and after writing about a page, it started to leak ink on her.  Other Konrads bought at the same time behave similarly.  These pens are a disaster!

Love this pen April 10, 2013
Reviewer: Alan Ferguson from Arvada, CO United States  
I received this pen a couple weeks ago. Not only is it gorgrous, but its a nice size, not to big not to small, either capped or uncapped. I did add a knox 1.1 italic stub to it and its become my everyday writer.
