Noodler's Nib Creaper Flex Fountain Pen - Midas Pearl

The Nib Creaper (also known as the "Standard Flex Pen") was the first fountain pen produced by Noodler's, introduced in 2010, and is Noodler's smallest and slimmest fountain pen. It features a steel flexible #2 nib and a twist piston mechanism. A small ink window shows how much ink is left in your pen. These pens are made from a celluloid derivative. 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 Nib Creaper Flex Fountain Pen - Midas Pearl is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pen for the price I've always loved fountain pens, but didn't get into actively collecting them until recently. The most expensive one I ever bought wasn't a favorite at all. This Noodler 's Nib Creaper Flex was under $20 and turns out to be a joy to write with. Of course, the color is just a matter of preference. I filled this one with gold ink just because I had never used gold ink. Found out I really liked having an odd color of ink! This pen was very easy to fill; a real boon to a relative newbie like myself. I can see myself changing inks fairly regularly. I've enjoyed having this pen in my pocket. Being an inexpensive pen, I don't mind carrying it on the job, a place I usually don't like to have an expensive pen. I may buy another just to have one in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually surprised how pretty this color is- I have purchased a number of Noodler's Nib Creapers -The Midas Pearl is definitely my favorite to date - It isn't quite solid "gold" - there are subtle shades of gold/bronze/copper/silver overall - Making it kind of a "color shifter", it looks great with a variety of colors- Noodler's Golden Brown, Burma Road and Diamine Ancient Copper .. Needless to say.. any Nib Creaper is a super fun pen to use !
