Noodlers Ahab Video Script

This is the Noodlers Ink Ahab Flex Fountain Pen. It comes in a white cardboard box and a Noodlers logo, and other designs on the outside of the box. This particular pen is the blue lapis version of the Noodlers Ahab Fountain Pen, and it comes with chrome accents on the pen, and it has that swirling marbling pattern on both the cap and the barrel. It's going to be unique for each of the pens. They are all a little different just based on how that pattern comes out when they turn the pen.

On the top of the cap is a thin chrome band that transitions to a chrome colored clip. That clip has a Noodlers Ink logo on it. Then on the bottom of the cap, we have a thick chrome band with Noodlers Ink engraved on that as well. The cap is threaded and unscrews. It's a good size pen. You don't need to post the pen to use it, but you can if you'd like to. Makes it pretty long. Then you can see that chrome colored nib on the pen. It also has Noodlers Ink Co. engraved on it. And to change the ink on the pen, you simply unscrew the grip section from the barrel. It's got a piston or plunge style converter to fill the pen, and it allows you to use bottled inks in different colors of your choice. Great fountain pen, fairly inexpensive if you want to try a flex nib. Get your Noodlers Ink Ahab Flex Fountain Pen at PenChalet.com!

One of my favorite pens - the Ahab fits my hand, is the correct weight, handles nicely and best of all, even on bad days writes easily. I have arthritis so my hands are very finicky and I needed a pen that I can use on good days as well as bad days. This pen fits that bill.

Great pen! I admittedly have been swapping nibs out on this one, but in general, Noodler's flex nibs are wonderful. Ahab is a good size, even for smaller hands.

So glad I finally got one of these! It's very comfortable to hold and so smooth to write with. The resin has a really nice feel too. Yes, it smells funny... two weeks later it still smells somewhat but I don't care! I love writing with it and am really glad I finally bought one (probably the first of many).

I like the flex nib and the color is pretty, but I can’t get over the smell. The pen smells like vomit. I’ve tried washing it and disinfecting it and curing it under UV and nothing has lessened the smell. I had heard that Noodlers pens have an odor, but hadn’t realized it would smell like THAT. Yuck.

Got the Ahab in Truk Lagoon; mine looks bluer and cloudier than the picture. Thankfully, my pen worked right away (I did flush it with water first, as per the instructions). I'm new to flex pens, but I was having fun with this in no time! I love how it's so versatile: you can use the piston converter (with or without the breather tube), eyedropper it, or use refillable cartridges; you can switch out the nib with any #6 nib; you can adjust the flow and the flex by repositioning the nib and the feed....

I've already ordered another Ahab to use with a Jinhao #6 fude nib :)

I've nearly one in every color and two or even three in some. I stand by my initial feeling after my very first purchase when they hit the market - they are the most fun you can have with a flex pen for under $25. I'm still buying them and replacing nibs on originals when needed all these later. If you haven't tried one, shame on you. I've taught children and adults alike the fun of writing with flex and they've all thanked me for it.

These are the famous, or infamous, Noodler's pens people in the hobby talk and get flustered about. The pens are made of an Indian vegetal resin that gives them that wispy look and color. Also makes them quite lightweight which means a lot to a writer and are quite comfortable to hold, Filling system is through a piston type converter which is proprietary so no international anything for these pens. With this also comes a bit of smell from the resin used. Some have more problems witht that than others. It does dissipate. The nib is where the work can come in because these bad boys have ebonite feeds and a flex nib. They can be somewhat temperamental and may require slight movements of nib and feed to work properly. Make them great pens for those that tinker and desire an introduction to the world of flex. I have set mine up as a daily writer and it does an excellent job. As a beginner pen, it could pose some trouble. But for those with a little experience and some desire, you really need at least one. Here at Pen Chalet the price is also unbeatble.

This is my second Noodler's pen. I also own an ebonite Konrad I bought from Pen Chalet as well. I found I had tons of trouble with the flex nib in the Konrad and after much fighting, gave up and put a different one in. When this pen went on sale I decided to give the flex nibs a try again and picked an Ahab up. I have been pleasantly surprised with the nib this time and have had no problems with it so far. It's not what I would consider truly flexible, of course, but it is certainly a semi-flex with decent line variation.

As to the pen's functionality; It works fine and holds a nice amount of ink, but I can definitely attest to the "Noodler's Odor™!" The vegetal resin has an odd, semi-chemical, semi-burnt smell that never fully goes away. I also wish the pen had an outward swell at the end of the section. I hold pens with my fingertips right at the end of section near the feed and I wind up with ink-stains almost every time I use the Ahab. A bit of a ridge or flare would be a welcome finger-stop. The section diameter is comfortable for me, I just slide down the pen and wind up in the feed.

Aesthetically I think the pen is fairly pedestrian-looking. It's perfectly functional, I just don't find it terribly attractive personally. And the weirdly humped clip is just strange. It's far, far more protuberant than, say, a vintage Sheaffer's Balance humped clip. It works OK, it just looks very odd to me.

I'm happy to have found a working Noodler's flex nib and I do keep this pen in my EDC rotation, but I think I like the look and functionality of the Konrad a bit more.

Hello, is there an option for a music nib (multi-tine)?

No there is not a option for the music nib on the Noodlers Ahab. It only comes in the flex nib option. The Noodlers Neponset has the music nib option.
