Noodler's Ahab Flex Fountain Pen - Apache Tortoise

The Ahab is a Noodler's Flex fountain pen. It's the largest of their flex pens and is especially easy to clean as you can fully disassemble the pen. The friction fit feed and nib means you can pull out the feed and nib to easily adjust the flow to meet your writing styles or specific ink qualities, as well as allowing you to clean thoroughly. The pen comes with a push-piston fill mechanism, but it can also be converted into an eyedropper, allowing you a huge amount of ink (6mL!).

This pen is a great way to get into the world of flex pens - writes like a fine nib with minimal pressure, but with a little more pressure, you can write calligraphy, sketch or add character to your letters.

We recommend that you flush the pen out before your first fill to remove any factory machine residue. Use a pen flush or just water and dish soap.

Does not take cartridges. Uses bottled ink (no converter required).

This pen may require some tinkering to adjust flow for optimal writing. For a guide on how to adjust your pen to your ideal ink flow and flexibility, check out the blog.

4 of 5 Great value August 25, 2016
Reviewer: Rachelle from Timmins, ON Canada  
I really enjoy using this pen, the flex nib is cool, and when inked with Apache Sunset, it really makes a statement on paper. The only thing I don't really like is although light, it feels a little bulky in the hand, and there is a smell from the material of the pen that takes a long while to disappear. Overall, I would recommend this pen if you are interested playing with a flex.

5 of 5 Ahab Apache Tortise July 22, 2015
Reviewer: Sarah White from Ottawa, ON Canada  
Love this pen.  I am relatively new to the world of fountain pens, but this pen has been so much fun.  Easy to fill, easy to clean, easy to adjust... you can fiddle with the flow and not end up covered in ink.  Given the aesthetics and the great price I would very much recommend this pen

5 of 5 Amazing colour. February 19, 2015
Reviewer: Ree Zheng from Toronto, ON Canada  
The pen is a Noodler Ahab, just clean it before use and that will help a lot.  The colour, however, is stunning.  The picture does not do it justice.  There are translucent areas that really make the colour "pop".  I wouldn't make this into an eyedropper just so I can retain the translucency.  However, every pen is differently coloured so YMMV.
