About the Noodlers Boston Safety

The Noodlers Boston Safety Pen has been created for use with bonded inks such as Committee of Safety inks, India inks gum Arabic and shellac, iron gall, etc.

The Safety pen bathes the nib and feed in ink and is unlike any other fountain pen. For this reason it is safe to use inks that will damage a regular fountain pen.

Created from ebonite with o-ring seals so it will not survive petroleum based writing fluids but it will survive other inks other fountain pens cannot.

Noodlers Boston Safety Video Script

This is the Noodlers Boston Safety Pen. It comes in a basic cardboard box with the Noodlers logos and information on about the pen on the outside. Inside is the Boston Safety Pen, as well as the use and care guide information and instructions for pen. And, of course, the Boston Safety Pen. This pen only comes in the black color with chrome clip. Noodlers logo is engraved on the clip and it has a small ring. On the side of the cap is engraved Boston Safety Pen Noodlers Ink Company. And it also has the same engraving here on the barrel of the pen.

It's an interesting design. It has been created for inks that may not be fountain pen friendly. On this particular pen, the cap on the pen is threaded, it unscrews. The key into this pen is to keep your nib pointed upward when you pull the cap off if you have ink in the pen. This particular pen does not have ink in it, so you don't have to worry about that. The reason is the design is made so that the ink stays in the cap of the pen.

So, when you pull the cap off, you then screw the backside of the barrel and it extends the nib out. And once the nib is out all the way, it seals this so that it doesn't continue to leak ink. You can then turn it upside down and write with it. It comes with a stainless steel nib on the pen, silver in color, and has Noodlers Ink Co. engraved on it with the black fit on the backside.

The reason it does it is designed this way is to keep the ink inside the cap of the pen as well as the barrel of the pen. This allows the ink to continuously be on the nib of the pen, keeping it from drying out. So some of those inks that might be harmful to a regular fountain pen is not going to damage this pen.

One of the things about the pen as well is you have to unscrew the nib back down before you can put the cap back on the pen. If you leave the nib extended it can hit the end of the cap of the pen. Another thing about the pen is how to fill it. It uses an eye-dropper system. So you would fill it with an eye-dropper at the top of the pen with the nib retracted. Interesting design. A unique pen.

I got this pen in the Chestnut ebonite a couple of months ago, and admired it greatly. It makes a fine signature pen, because it is always ready to write once extended. I have been waiting with bated breath for the Black ebonite pen to come back in stock, and when it did I grabbed one of them too. And I am as delighted with it as I am with the Chestnut. I cannot help but think a red ripple or green ripple would sell as well.

I am enjoying this pen far more than I expected to do, to be honest. For straight non-flexed use, it's the most pleasant Noodler's pen I have yet owned (out of multiple Ahabs, Nib Creapers, Charlies, and a Tripe Tail). It railroads pretty easily when I flex-write, but I am not too worried about that. I prefer the nice Fine line it uses otherwise. I made a mess the first time I filled it, but I have learned my lesson. It's a treat to use, and I will get a black one at some point (I have the brown one, which looks great).

This pen can be fun, but it has some frustrating aspects. There is a pin in the cap which pushes down on the feed to prevent nib damage if you accidentally leave the nib out while trying to cap it. In my case, the pin actually hit the retracted nib and bent the point. This was a 14K flexible vintage nib that I had installed, not the standard Noodler's nib. This was sent to IndyPenDance, where the nib was straightened out, and the offending pin was removed.

To use the pen is frustrating. The body diameter could use an increase. It is tight to move the point in and out. The motion of retracting the nib creates increased air pressure which is released through the feed. The result is that the pen spits out ink on my desk, or the wall, as I retract the point. I want to try to move the point back slowly to avoid this, but it's hard as the point movement is stiff. Overall - mixed feelings about this pen. Great concept, and a beautiful replica of the Moore Safety Pen. However, there are problems in real life use.

I love the Noodlers Boston Safety Pen. It looks like it’s a 60 year old vintage pen. Each pen is made entirely of Ebonite. The pens are either solid black or brown and black swirls. I have 2 of each. One I write with. The others I keep in my display case.

I’m thrilled with this pen! It’s simple, straightforward, functions perfectly, writes like a dream and looks like a “Blast from the Past”! The swirl Ebonite is really nice. I own a lot of high end pens but I’m not a snob. I thought this pen would be messy to use but the nib comes up, seals in place without so much as a smidgen of ink lingering. I’m very impressed!

I make homemade inks, such as black walnut and iron gall inks. I'm always looking for fountain pens that work well with my inks. The Noodler's Boston Safety Pen is the first and only pen that I've found that actually works with my black walnut ink. It handles real iron gall ink just fine, too (by "real," I mean the iron gall ink that is traditionally only used with dip pens). I really love these pens! Only downside is that they don't hold a very large quantity of ink, and they are a bit of a pain to clean (I'm using these pens as "permanently designated pens" for specific inks so I don't have to clean them in between ink changes). It is recommended that you watch the video to make sure you understand how to fill these pens, otherwise you will make a mess. I highly recommend these pens for those who love to use the trickier, permanent inks out there.

Still getting bit used to it. I haven't tried it in any non nomral ink yet, but it works nicly. Need to keep it nib down when the nib is out if not writing, otherwise will stop the ink feed. Defintaly a pen that takes a little getting used to, but writes nicely once does.

The pen had a bit of an odd smell at first. I bought it to use with the SF Pen show limited safety pen ink. There’s a definite learning curve and I had to do a bit of research to find out how much ink to use to prevent overflow. I definitely suggest filling with an ink syringe and keeping to the exact suggested amount of ink to prevent messes.

I love the Boston Safety pens. I like that I can take them apart, I like that they travel well, and I like that they write every time. I bought two because I leave one at my office and take the other one with me. I write and draw and paint so this is my go to pen for all of it.
