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!

Favorite flex pen October 27, 2014
Reviewer: Shan Reddy from Las Vegas, NV United States  
By far my favorite flex nib fountain pen. Extremely durable, never leaks. I have had this pen loaded with Noodler's 54th for as long as I can remember, and the Konrad has neither ever skipped, nor dried up. Reliable workhorse, with a large ink capacity and beautiful demonstrator body. Thanks Goulet!

Konrad February 11, 2014
Reviewer: cheri stephens from pacific, MO United States  
I was really looking forward to this pen. When I first filled it, it leaked a bit so I emailed Goulet. I got a response very quickly with the help I needed. Now I am just fiddling around with it to learn about it. This will be fun now. Thanks for the help.

Fun Pen October 4, 2013
Reviewer: Gregory Aloisi from Hanahan, SC United States  
What a fun pen this is. I am enjoying learning how to use it properly and it is improving my hand writing in the process. I love the deep red color and it fits my large hand well. You just can't beat this pen especially for the price.

Great pen! February 19, 2013
Reviewer: Kerrie Kubisch from Upper Hutt, New Zealand New Zealand  
Very happy with my pen. I found the YouTube video of how to adjust the pen and the nib, and how to fill it with ink, very useful. It is very easy to pull apart, put back together, and clean. I still have some way to go to adjust my drawing style to take full advantage of the pen, but am looking forward to doing so. It was a major decision for me to buy this pen, given the expense of postage from the USA to New Zealand (thought about it for a whole year!). For me, including postage, this is the most I have ever spent on a pen & ink. Now that I have the pen, I am very happy with it.
