This red ebonite Noodler's Neponset fountain pen is fitted with a flexible three-tined music nib, which has a velvet pen stroke with the ability to greatly vary the line width to the users liking. It has a built-in slide piston mechanism for use with bottled ink.

The Neponset is a glimpse back in time to an era of legacies and war heroes. The New England Airship company, later renamed the Dartmouth Airship Co., the first of its kind in the United States, had a new CEO during a challenging time for our country. During the year of 1929 Nathan’s grandfather became CEO and one year later christened a new airship named the Neponset.

The shape of the Neponset pen is similar to the dirigible and is constructed of the original fountain pen material ebonite, which was vulcanized in 1844 by Charles Goodyear in Massachusetts whose company built the Neponset airship.

The Neponset is fitted with a three tined music nib, the "Vishnu Victory" nib in honor of the 2.5 million World War II allied soldiers of India as well as the reference to the source for the ebonite used in the pen and the original Neponset Blimp.
