Filling The Noodler's Ahab Flex Pen

It's been a while since the Noodler's Ahab Flex Pen came out, and I have had this video in my sights for some time. So without further ado, here is a video that shows how to fill the Ahab with its piston, as well as how to convert it to an eyedropper pen. I even show the various ink capacities that the pen can have, and how that compares to your average cartridge/converter pen.

There are two different ways to fill the Ahab, with the supplied piston, or if you remove that piston, as an eyedropper. Both will get you a good volume of ink, (1.7ml with the piston if the breather tube is missing, 1.9ml with the piston if the breather tube is in place, and 6ml+ with the eyedropper!). This was a significant improvement over the original Noodler's Nib Creaper Flex pen, which only holds about 1ml of ink.

So I apologize for such a delay getting this video out, but at least it's here now :)
