The Noodlers Nib Creaper flex fountain pen features a small, slender body with a steel flexible #2 nib and a twist piston mechanism. A small ink window shows how much ink is left in your pen. The pens are made from a celluloid derivative. The vegetal resin body of this en may show particles of striations within the material. This is most noticeable in demonstrators and bright colors. The Nib Creaper (also known as the "Standard Flex Pen") was the first fountain pen produced by Noodler's, introduced in 2010.

The Noodlers flex pens were designed for the hand-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 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 that could arise.

While these nibs are #6 size, these Konrad pens do not accept other brands of nibs due to the shape of the interior grip.

We are authorized retailers for Noodlers, so this pen will come directly from the manufacturer.

DEAR NOODLER...HOW DO I LOVE THEE...?

...let me count the ways!

When ordering this Ahab, I imagined it would join is two bigger-barreled Ahabs often used by me for longish writing days, notes, letters and the like...

This svelte, stylish, easy filling beauty quickly took her place for all of these excellent reasons but ***also*** because she neatly fits into the pen-sleeve of my various leather notebook, portfolio and field notebook covers without being too tight and allowing the clip to easily fit over the sleeve to secure the pen. The threaded cap assures it won't wiggle loose leaving any inky accident to later regret.

Her star status has been rewarded by being assigned to my new, excellent Jackson Wayne leather Field Notes cover which is the only such cover I have found with the pen sleeve ***inside the cover, fully protected,*** rather than stitched on the edge and in harm's way...
