Noodler's Konrad Acrylic Flex Fountain Pen - Emeralds on the Sun

The Konrad Acrylic flex pen was introduced in early 2013 - 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 Acrylic is made of acrylic acetate.

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 and heat set for optimal performance. Don't be afraid to get a little ink on your fingers while you learn how to use this pen.

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!

We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material, expect some variation in the pattern from what you see here. But hey, that just makes each pen unique!

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!

Noodler's Konrad Acrylic Flex Fountain Pen - Emeralds on the Sun is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emeralds and Sun This pen is gorgeous! I debated for quite a while before deciding which color of Acrylic Konrad to buy. While green or yellow are not normally colors I like, I kept coming back to this pen, so decided it had to be the one I went with. As soon as I took it out of the box, it took my breath away. Pearled gold and dark green absolutely gorgeous, it looks different depending on the type of light it is in, sometimes the green looking almost black with hints of light peeking through. I love it! If you are on the fence about the color, believe me, I was too, but this pen is gorgeous! I did switch the nib to a Goulet #6 fine, but the flex nib was OK out of the box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointed in Colors I've been wanting a yellow pen for my case and the colors had me lusting after this pen for months. I finally gave in and bought it and the colors really weren't what I was expecting. It's firmly in the orange instead of yellow to me and the green looks black unless I get it up close to look at. I know with these pens there are no guarantees for exact colors or color ratios but I really wasn't expecting this. Overall, I love the pen. I like it more than the Ahab for size and the adorable ink window. Putting some Diamine Magical Forest or Golden Sands in there looks amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic pen My pen arrived today after a ridiculously quick shipping time from when I placed my order and I am extraordinarily pleased with it. I had asked when I ordered if they could pick one out for me that was mostly green and that's exactly what I got. The colors are gorgeous and the size and weight are perfect. I flushed it out with some warm, very slightly soapy water, then a few rinses with clear water and I was ready to ink it up. Diamine Salamander is the first in the barrel and it writes smooth with nary a problem. I think this may well become my favorite pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pictures don't do it any justice! You gotta see this in person. The yellow in the pictures is more of a deep golden pearl and the green has many shades that change with every turn. I was very pleased to add this one to my collection of Noodler's Konrad acrylic pens. Definitely a keeper. Get one, you won't be disappointed. And with the Goulet service? It's icing on the cake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noodlers Konrad Acylic Flex Fountain pen The apogee of writing instruments; to my mind far better than anything costing five times as much - it lays down the ink smooth, slick, and fruity. And the pen looks, well, glam-rock. And a treat to receive it from Goulet, perfectly packaged, winging in from the States only five days after ordering it. Terrific service !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Pen I bought this pen because the photo of it looked gorgeous, The actual pen is even moreso. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because I'm a bit concerned about durability, based on previous experiences with Noodler's pens. But so far, this works extremely well, and it's hard to beat this price for such an attractive pen with a flexible nib. The service from Goulet was typically first-rate. The pen arrived about 3 days after I ordered it. During Christmas week. Nice work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice pen I received this as a Christmas gift, and have been enjoying it very much. The resin has a beautiful, translucent depth and almost seems to glow. This is my first piston filler, and I am finding that feature to be very handy. This is also my first flex nib, and I am still in the process of tuning it to my taste, but thanks to Noodler's design and Brian's videos, that process is easy and enjoyable in itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool. Nice feel in hand. Very nice pen. I loaded this one up with a Bad Green Gator and it writes great!. The reservoir seems pretty large for a piston filler, so that's a bonus. The pen feels really comfortable in hand and has good balance non-posted (I don't like posting any pen). The colors are very cool. I'll get more colors when available. I like this one better than the Ahab.
