About the Noodlers Neponset

Named after an ariship blimp designed by the New England Airship company, Dartmouth Airship Co., The Noodlers Ink Acrylic Neponset fountain pen comes with an ebonite feed while the body and cap of the pen are acrylic. The various color choices offer drastic patterns and designs.

The Noodlers Ink Neponset is the largest of their fountain pens they offer. Its shape is similar to the airship and is built from the original material used for fountain pens, ebonite which was vulcanized by Charles Goodyear in Massachusetts and his company also built the Neponset blimp.

The pen is fitted with a three-tined flex music nib, the "Vishnu Victory", for line variation. Vishnu Victory being in honor of the World War II soldiers as well as the source of ebonite used for the original fountain pens and Nepeonset airship. The Neponset fountain pen is also fitted with a plunger style piston fill mechanism.

The Neponset isn't anything like the Ahab. I love my Ahab, and thought the music-style nib of the Neponset would be like the Ahab on steroids. It wasn't. Even after heat-setting and fidgeting and adjusting, the feed never could keep up enough ink flow to supply those flexy steel times. Even if I tried my darndest to not over-flex them, the ink would sputter and stop every other letter-- I cleaned it out and tossed it in the thrift-store pile and returned to my trusty Ahab.

I was pleased at the look, and size of my Neponset black & white swirl fountain pen. but hate the nib.
It writes much too wet, then goes to a dry scratchy mode. I own several Noodler's Ink fountain pens. This is my first and last Neponset pen. Sorry I bought it.

a very colorful pen indeed ! the music nib gets a bit of getting used to while writing . I smoothened the edges on a 200 grain sand paper lightly ! now it writes perfectly to my style . the 3 trine nib is a first for me and is quite an experience . well much like a gold 750 smooth nib indeed . Good as in 7.5 on 10 scale !! K patel .

I am a HUGE fan of Noodler’s fountain and my absolute favorite are the Neponset. The various finishes are what draws me in. I wanted this specific one but saw that they were getting harder to find or they were more than the original price. So when I saw that Pen Chalet had this one AND that they had a discount coupon I snapped it up!! I am a hard working consumer and I buy things with care. If I see a vendor give a ‘real’ discount on their products I take notice. I have seen vendors that advertise that the items are now discounted but it’s the same price as it’s always been I don’t ever buy anything from them. Pen Chalet was the real deal. Thank you!

Purchased on sale. Nib is unreliable, as the tines lose adjustment easily. Not a flex, but stiff and with variable inking. Cap/barrel threading is iffy and one need guard against cross-threading. I made the pen work with a different #6 nib I had on hand.

Note that this model has no replacement ink reservoir for sale, no "Vishnu" nibs (why would one want another) and no ebonite feed for sale that matches the original. Replacement #6 nibs may or may not work since the section retention gizmo has been changed. The Ahab/Konrad ebonite feed floods the nib if you try that as a replacement.

I would venture a guess that this model is soon retired, given the diminished stock-on hand of the various retailers and the lack of replacement parts.


The Neponset is over-priced to begin with. Indian ebonite pens are widely available - and with sections in various threading - not press-fits, I find some Noodler's inks useful, especially the Black, HoD and ELL Black so I am not anti-Noodler's.

Pen Chalet service is fast and reliable. I note that many reviews are favorable for the Neponset. I have it writing quite nicely now - but it is now an Indian ebonite body with a good Conklin nib which was manufactured by a German nib producer.

Such a cool Pen, so fun to write with, and really shows an inks full potential. I haven’t had to fiddle with mine at all, worked like a champ out of the box, where my Ahab always needs tweaking. Perfect for shading inks.

Very nice pens. I have two: one in red Ebonite and one in resin. They are both well made pens and a nice oversize writer. I've switched to modified Zebra G nibs in both of them because the music nibs are just too broad and wet for my own use. They do write well and have great flex, but sometimes require tuning / adjusting if after flexing the nibs can get out of alignment. They work terrific with G-nibs, and other #6 size replacement nibs - the feeds are very wet so no starvation when flexing.

Noodlers Neponset Video



Video Script

This is the Noodler's Ink Acrylic Neponset Fountain Pen. It comes in a white cardboard box. The Noodler's Ink logo printed on it with other pictures around the exterior of the box, and inside we have the Noodler's Acrylic Neponset Fountain Pen.

This is the ghostly blue version of the pen. You can see in both the cap and the barrel it has the alternating blue and white acrylic resins, and it has a pearlized pattern to it so you can kind of see the different sheens as you rotate that barrel and the light reflects off of it. You can see that pearlized both of the blue and the white. The pattern of the pen, it reminds me of a lava lamp a little bit.

Then, at the bottom of the cap we have a small chrome band. It has the Noodler's Ink logo engraved on that band. And once again on the clip of the pen, it's a chrome colored clip with the Noodler's Ink logo engraved again. And that clip is held on by that thin chrome band at the top of the cap of the pen.

The cap is threaded, it unscrews. You can post the pen. It's a pretty good size pen. It's got a nice, thick barrel. You can use the pen with or without it posted, whichever you prefer. I feel like the pen is big enough to use it without the cap posted.

This particular Noodler's Ink pen comes with a music style nib. You can see the two different ink channels. And a little bit broader point. This pen is filled by removing the grip section from the pen. It has this plunger style fill mechanism to fill the ink.

Noodler's Ink, they're a fairly inexpensive brand, but they make some really good pens. They're fun to write with. Get your Noodler's Ink Neponset Fountain Pen at PenChalet.com!
