Noodler's Neponset Ebonite Flex Fountain Pen - Teal

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.

The flexible 3-tined music nib has a velvet pen stroke with the ability to greatly vary the line width to the users liking.

Noodler's Neponset Ebonite Flex Fountain Pen - Teal is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Pen Writes Big I found the Neponset to be a wonderful big pen. It's so big you really can't write a fine line with it. A very light touch would yield a medium line but apply some pressure and very quickly you get something in the neighborhood of BBB. I've only tried it with one ink so far so your mileage may vary. For the sake of controllability though I will be switching to to a dry writing ink. What I've been doing so far though has yielded some decent shading. The default fill system is the same as the one in the Ahab but I have switched it out to use one of these newfangled 308 cartridges. I love it and I'm going to have a lot of wet inky adventures I'm sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A large and manly pen I've only had this pen for a few days, but I like the large size of this Neponset. If you have small hands, this pen may be too large for you. The nib is definitely broad, but very smooth. I'm usually more of a Japanese EF nib person, but it's a lot of fun writing with the Neponset's music nib. I love the raised flange at the end of the grip section, a la Konrad. It keeps my middle finger from traveling down to the feed and getting stained. The piston looks to be the same as the Ahab. It also appears that you could swap nibs between it, the Ahab, and the Konrad. A big plus, in my book. Yes, Goulet nibs can be used on it, too. I'm a sucker for ebonite pens, since they instill a vintage feel for me. This is my third ebonite Noodler's pen, and I'll add more to the collection as time goes by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much improved!!! I purchased one of the earliest issue Neponsets (ebonite) and was thoroughly disappointed with the performance of the nib. I just purchased two of the new issue (Acrylic) and was very pleased with the improvement in the performance of the nib. It still doesn't flex like an Ahab but the line is crisp, even and consistent. I would definitely recommend this for those who are bold of hand and spirit!
