I found this pen exciting and useful. the ink flows smoothly and the brush never looses its shape. You can depend upon it stroke after stroke. Was so much fun I bought a 2nd one for lighter colored inks. I found it a bit of an ordeal to clean the dark inks from the brush. I haven't experimented with switching out the brush yet; but I see that in the future. I truly like having a portable brush to take with me.

The jury is still out on this one. I haven't been writing wit it long enough to give a fair voice. I use it in a Lamy Al Star. It is rather odd behaving. It could be my pen. I love the smell of this ink though.

The shorter, more tapered brush, compare to the Ahab Brush, gives a little more control in calligraphic brush lettering. The easily removed screw cap at the end of the pen, gives quick access to the screw piston ink cartridge converter for replenishing ink to the brush. This pen also comes with a second ball point writing stylist that just screws in place of the brush nib.

Bottled(4.5oz)
I bought a few 4.5oz bottled Noodlers ink. The primary reason I bought this size is for the eye-droppers for each color I would see myself use regularly. I have heart of darkness, bay state blue, Nikita and Dragons Napalm. Most of the 4.5oz bottled ink price is not as competitive as the general 3oz versions, if you just compare the price per oz cost. All 4.5oz bottles come with a Charlie empty eyedropper pen. The Charlie's concept is great, which also inspired me to convert my Ahab into an eyedropper. But the Charlies cannot write well. I got a few Charlies from my 4.5oz bottle ink purchases, but I will soon put them all away because none of them could write well and I am not an expert to tinker with the Charlies to make them behave.

Cost wise, getting the 4.5oz bottle version is still a better deal because I don't want to separately spend money to buy glass eyedropper bottles (not as cost beneficial).

I use Noodlers ink in all of my fountain pens. The Noodlers ink feathers and penetrates into cheap papers (Staples branded loose leave, notebooks and their cheapest copy papers). So, you should expect to write on one side of any Staples papers and the backsides are basically rendered un-writable. I also have tried Noodlers ink on Hammermill general purpose copy papers. The ink does not feather as much compared to Staples papers, but still penetrates into the papers, so, you can only use one side of the Hammermills.

While Noodlers inks are one of the least expensive in the market, but you will end up using more papers for general purpose writing. I don't have other inks for comparison. I hope other buyers post their own findings to share their experiences.

I have do not used Noodlers ink for drawing, as such, no opinion on this ink's quality on artwork.

Refillable 308 Cartridge
I love the Refillable 308 Cartridge! I first found it on Amazon but the price is just too expensive. I wish Noodlers will come out with a similar large-capacity eyedropper cartridge for the Neponset. After using the Refillable 308 Cartridge, all other cartridges just cannot compare to the capacity that the "308" offers

I needed a "document" type ink for work, so I read all the reviews and settled on 54th Mass. for my first black/blue-black ink. With no other blue-black inks to compare it with, I haven't developed the warm-fuzzies over the 54th Mass. quite yet. This ink shades on the blue side given the paper I've tried it on including Rhodia. All in all, it plays better for me in broader nibs and smoother paper: delightfully wet and smooth in a TWSBI 580AL medium, very slightly less so in a Pelikan M200 medium and much drier in the Aurora Ipsilon fine nib. Lays down a very nice line on Office Depot 24# premium laser paper without feathering or bleed through, and dries quickly too. However, I do observe slight ghosting on my laser check paper.

One thing for sure, you get your monies worth of ink from Noodlers. It was filled to the brim. I do like this ink, but it is to early to tell how this ink will fare compared to other blue-blacks I have inbound ... win, place or show?

Neponset
Finally, a Noodler's nib with real flex. I popped it out of the box, inked it up, and haven't put it down for a couple days. This pen is much more fun and much higher quality than either the Ahab (I have two) or Creaper which all require some serious effort to flex. The Neponset nib, on the other hand, is a flexy gusher. However, it's a Broad nib to start with, so it requires some touch to the most interesting line variations. Nevertheless, it's a large, well made pen. I got the lemon-drop yellow acrylic version, and it's really pretty. The acrylic has an excellent feel to it and on my pen anyway, the section was also acrylic and very comfortable for long periods of writing (unposted, btw, it's a perfect size for unposted writing). It's easily the juiciest nib I've ever written with, but that's just fun for me. It's not a pen for someone with tiny subtle handwriting, but if you like to slash your ink all over the place, it's great. Not dip nib flexy and not wet noodle, but it likes to respond to pressure. Easily worth the Penchalet price (get that 10% discount and free shipping! and no, I don't own stock in Penchalet, I'm just a fiend for good prices).

Piston fill at a bargain price.
You will learn about working on fountain pens with these.
I like to tinker so these pens are good for me.
Once they are set up they work quite well.

A great value for a great ink.
the only fault I can attribute is my own, because I thought that this ink was one that came with a Noodler's Charlie pen, and while I was not disabused of this notion by the representative I spoke to when I ordered, I cannot fault Pen Chalet, only my own ignorance. Noodler's Black is a great ink, whether there's a free pen included or not.

This stuff is a great color and it shades brilliantly even in fine or stingy nibs. It's very flowy. Here's the big warning: bleach your feed before you try to use this. If your feed had any residual inks in it, they will make this into a pukey color. Drove me nuts for three different pens. I'm sure it's worse the better the feed; ebonite I just gave up on. It doesn't take much bleach, like a half tsp in a glass of water, but let it soak. When it's shading, it has a range from a golden toasty brown to a pale yellowy orange. I can take it more seriously than orange or pink inks.

A great black - dark and lasting. Not too slow drying. Smooth flow and feed in all my pens save one Pilot. It is the ink for Conklins. I also use the Antietam red. A good solution to the iron gall side effects in a permanent ink. Clean you pens regularly!

Would give 6 stars if I could! This and the Ahab are the only true fountain brush pens I know of. Nice fine but variable line, good for calligraphy or art work. If you want a thicker line, you can use a full brush tip replacement or get the Ahab. A good value at $20. If you refill it several times, it will be cheaper than a disposable or cartridge brush pen and work at least as well. I have the clear version, and like the fact that you can see exactly how much ink you have left.

Konrad
This is my first Noodler's Ink fountain pen ever. I've read reviews & viewed reviews of the various "flex" pens available and I decided to go with their latest flex pen, the Konrad. My dad's name was Conrad, played a part as well in my decision. When I received the package, and I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't take too long to arrive, I did an initial wash through with the disassembled pen before putting some ink in it as suggested by one of the videos. Also from one of the videos, it advised that it may take some time to get the pen to "flex" properly at first. I play around with it a few minutes every day, just so it gets used to how I use it. It probably won't "flex" the way I really want it to. Not the way I assumed it would. But I'm getting to like it each day that I use it. I think I'll be planning on getting the Neponset next.

Neponset
I currently own three Noodler's pens and I like them all but the Neponsit is one of my favorites I really like the size of this pen and the colors of acrylic cap and barrel are something you would expect in a much more expensive pen. The music nib is something you will need to get used to and if you want to use this pen as a daily writer then you will probably want to change out the nib. I have done this with mine using a standard #6 JoWo nib in fine using the same feed and with a little adjusting it works great. All in all a great pen at a good price, I certainly would recommend it especially to anyone that already is an experienced fountain pen user. (Tinkering is required)

My first flex pen, and being new to FP, not sure if I'm using the nib correctly for 'flex'results. I like the appearance. It posts deep rather than riding high on the body posted which I like. Has a good feel and weight. While I normally prefer a broad nib, I like the line this gives. It is smooth, doesn't skip, and starts up quite well. I am very happy to have it in my collection.
