Noodler's Ahab Flex Fountain Pen - Green Bay

The Ahab flex pen was introduced in late 2011 and is currently Noodler's most popular fountain pen. It features a steel flexible #6 nib and a slide piston mechanism. If you'd like, you can even remove the piston mechanism and use the pen as an eyedropper for a massive 6ml ink capacity. The Ahab is made of a celluloid derivative and is technically biodegradable and formed from a "renewable resource". The vegetal resin body of this pen may show particles or striations within the material. This is most noticeable in demonstrators and bright colors.

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!

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 Ahab Flex Fountain Pen - Green Bay is rated 4.4545 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Rich Emerald Green to Make My Irish Heart Smile My second Ahab did not disappoint. It's largish size, balanced weight, fine workmanship and rich color make this pen an excellent choice. Unlike my first Ahab, which I love and use as a flex pen, I changed out this flex nib with a Goulet stub nib before I inked it. Hard to improve on a good product but -- it did and it is simply fabulous! I have been using it every day since I received it and have had no skips, leaks, or scratchy writing. Basically, there was no break in time. Just smooth and pleasant from the beginning. Will definitely repeat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pen... Purchased as a fun pen to go along with my Jinhao X750..I find I use them both as everyday writers. I use both pens each and everyday while at work. Price point is great. I'm actually saving money not having to purchase my own disposable pens. Smooth writing, good ink capacity (fill about once a week). I'm now a fountain pen convert.. I don't see myself purchasing many disposable pens in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noodlers Ahab Well, I have four Ahabs now. Two of them are dry and scratchy. I have found that the best thing to do is replace the nib with a Goulet #6 and the pen is much improved. I do like that the pens are adjustable and fully serviceable. Also the service I have had from Goulet Pens has been second to none.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good flex It takes some getting used to and need to fiddle around with the feed & nib to get the best writing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Green Pen As a writer, I love to have my ink color identifiable by the color of the pen. Then I convert it to a dropper pen with O rings and replace the flex nib with either a Goulet Nib or Noodler Fine-Medium nib. Great flexibility to not only pick cool colored ink, but to customize your pen to a specific purpose. Especially love the service at Goulet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME.!!! No other pen offers the value of this pen, i fell in love with this pen the second i opened it and took it out of the box, and its adjustable, but don't let that scare you, it take only seconds to get it writing. I'm looking foeward to trying Noodler's other products
