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!

Recommended! April 8, 2014
Reviewer: Angelo from Tustin, CA United States  
I ordered this product after watching videos in youtube. The pen came packed appropriately in 3 days that really worked for me since I paid for standard shipping. A very fine note was included in it written by Katy and Joe Olney .
It was the first time I bought a product directly from a manufacturer and not through amazon. What made me decide to do it was their organized website with many more items higher in price than the one I picked.
The pen writes smoothly and fine. It is easy to recharge ink. Because of the price and features of the same, I think It is a good buy and experience.

Thank you guys, good job!

Angelo

Love this pen! February 24, 2014
Reviewer: Daniel Jones from New Lenox, IL United States  
Don't get me wrong, I love to tinker and thus I love Noodler's Konrads.  However, I've been fortunate that I've only really had to maintain the pens and not really tinker around that much.  I do like the flex but, I prefer a 1.1 stub so I always switch the flex nibs out with a brilliant Goulet nib.  Oh! I almost forget, the Goulet's are my heroes and my favorite people in the world!

Great pen January 21, 2014
Reviewer: Kyle from VT  
Great pen for the money.  Requires some tweaking to get it to function how you want, but that's why you are buying it in the first place.

Pretty pen but January 14, 2014
Reviewer: Miss Thundercat from Netherlands  
i have leaking problems with this pen. Sadly i can't get the flex to work either. Did a lot of tweaking with the nib/feed to get it to fit right, but sadly I still have leaking problems even with a replacement goulet nib.
