Noodlers Clear Demo Fountain Pen with FLEX Nib New from Noodlers - Piston Fill Fountain Pens with Flex Nib! -- Noodlers Writing Instruments of the World. This listing is for one Noodlers Flex Nib Fountain Pen. This is a brand new fountain pen with a retro (60s) style and Noodlers branding bringing writing fashion and function to a new height. The nib feeds more ink as it is flexed - the auto-vent flex opens the air passage to the feed far more than a conventional nib is capable of. A light touch at 45 degrees can produce a hairline to 1.5 mm (0.0906 inches). The speed of writing with a fully flexible nib should be adjusted to suit the flow of each ink type used (some inks will flow faster than others). Slower writing may be necessary if one is writing Victorian style script vs. fine shorthand - which can be written more rapidly. Available currently in limited quantities. With piston fill, 5¼ inches long with the cap closed, manufactured from a U.S. developed celluloid derivative, with a modern [type of] nylon sealed piston. The ink compartment is windowed, and the screw-off cap and section are banded. The metal clip and the nib proudly sport NOODLERS INK. Pen comes in its own individual Noodlers box with a detailed instruction sheet.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, for me, that novelty ran out. I've had ink sputter onto me (and my clothes) while writing, random blobs of ink bleed through my papers, ink leaks, rapid drying-out, and I'm pretty sure the section isn't machined correctly to even fit the metal nib because it has to be pushed so far in to stick, it's barely usable. Cosmetically, the section-to-barrel area is definitely crooked. So while this was truly fun for a few weeks, and I even came to endear the acrid smell, the thought of getting it out for another use turns me off.
For the low cost, yeah, why not enjoy a few weeks of "tinkering" and fun flex writing. For me, that lasted a month, and then the word "tinkering" started to seem like a fancy way of saying "this pen was poorly made, please fix it yourself."
I may try again with a Konrad or Ahab down the line, but for now, the Creaper is fondly remembered but has been laid to rest.
I have two, one that I ground the feed out to gush ink, and this one, which I kept stock.
Noodlers pens DO REQUIRE SOME FIDDLING. DO NOT BUY THIS AS A FIRST PEN. You will have to likely adjust how deep the nib and feed are in the body (further out = more flex, closer the feed is to the tip of the nib, more inkflow) and maybe use a razor blade to cut the ebonite feed a bit, but this will take any standard #5 nib as well, and is a proper piston filler.
The biodegradable vegetal resin isn't as crystal clear as a TWSBI's plastic, but it's still quite clear, and it's tougher than any other plastic you can think of. Nathan Tardiff of Noodlers has a video of himself driving over a konrad (Same material) with his car twice and it wrote fine, and then firing one out of a shotgun (it survived) It does have a VERY strong odor out of the box, some people HATE the smell, so if you don't like the pen's odor, stick it in a drawer for a week and it will dissipate quickly.
It's a very thin, light pen with a good posting cap.
The nib is nice, will flex very broad (western EF to about a 1.1-1.5 stub) though it does require way more pressure than a "vintage" flex pen, if you want to write bold and broad, this will do the job, no problem. It will get tiring to do after 10-15 minutes, unlike a vintage flex pen, but that isn't this pen's intent. It does write like a slightly springy gold nib when writing normally, which I really like (not like a soft nib, but softer than regular steel nibs)
Piston mechanism is smooth, simple, and reliable, and it holds a good amount of ink (2.5ish ml)
The only issue I have with these nib creapers is that the cap has no inner seal, so it can't be sat in a drawer, inked, like a platinum with a slip and seal cap or even a jinhao. The konrad has an inner cap and the ahab seems to not have much issue (my neponset is ebonite without an inner cap but seems to not have trouble either) it will dry out if left for a week inked and unused. So only ink this pen up when you want to use it, and the rest of the time, keep it empty, and you won't have any issues.
Overall, if you have a few dollars more and don't desperately want the thinnest pen you can find, I suggest the ahab, or if you need something a little smaller, the konrad, which are a bit more versatile and have a more easily swapped #6 nib. But for what it is, this is a solid little flex pen.
