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!

Piston September 4, 2014
Reviewer: Jiri Zahradnik from Havirov, Moravskoslezky kraj Czech Republic  
This pen is great for tingling and playing with it. As soon as it arrived, I have fitted in the zebra G dip nib. Writes well. However, after 3 days of contant use(cca 5 refills each day), the screwing part of piston, that part which makes the filling possible, fell of. Now I have to use it as an eyedropper. Still it is good pen.

Very impressive every day pen August 20, 2014
Reviewer: Mekeel McBride from Kittery, ME United States  
Beautiful color. I keep it out just to look at it! And it is also a very smooth, satisfying pen to use as an every day writer. At the moment, I'm using Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses in it. Good match.

Nice but July 1, 2014
Reviewer: Paul from Reston, VA United States  
Nice pen, I am happy with it. But the photo suggests a red, white, clear pen body. In reality, it is a translucent pen body, which mutes or disguises the colors of the body (the interior is all those mechanical bits, plus my not at all clear ink.)

very nice pen and very kind service June 28, 2014
Reviewer: Se hwan Kim from Pusan, Kyungsangnamdo South Korea  
Actually the first I got from Gouletpens was slightly defective ones. So I was dissapointed. But when I contacted to customer service center, they responsed very kindly and quickly. I could feel they tried to treat my problem. They sent new replacement with no shipping cost charge. (To Korea)
I was very touched and finally I got totally perfect new konrad pen and it worked great
Im really appreciate to every staff of Gouletpens and I think I will love this pen lover site forever! Thx :)
