Noodler's Ahab Flex Fountain Pen - Clear Demonstrator

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.

5 of 5 Great Pen for Sketching May 12, 2020
Reviewer: Marco B from Toronto, ON Canada  
I've only had this for a short bit now but after experimenting with it I'm super impressed. It does let out a lot of ink so just be careful about closing your notebook or sketchbook too quickly after drawing! I've been using it with Sailor Kiwaguro ink, which is a pigmented ink, and it feeds really well. I tried an experimental cleaning to see how that worked and it cleaned out with no issues using a ball syringe.

The lines can be really varied without too much pressure but of course it's not a solid gold nib so it's not feather light. The really nice thing about this especially if you're drawing, is that you can get line variation super quickly which typically required a brush pen in the past.

Overall I would highly recommend this pen to anyone who is on the fence about it, it's a very good price for value!

5 of 5 Oh yeah. This puppy is awesome. May 7, 2017
Reviewer: Margaret McDonald from Toronto, ON Canada  
This is such a neat, fun pen. Definitely a specimen for pen geeks, you're going to have to play around with the nib/feed setup. It's not going to write perfectly right out of the box but a big part of the fun is adjusting it to be perfect for your writing style. I've got Apache Sunset in it right now and my socks are quite thoroughly knocked off.

4 of 5 Great Learning/Fiddling/DIY/everyday writer! September 5, 2014
Reviewer: Josh T from Toronto, ON Canada  
This pen already has a great reputation amongst the fountain pen community. It is a pen that will let you dabble with flex for only $20!!! It wrote quite smoothly outta the box and could easily serve as an inexpensive everyday writer. It is a nice large robust pen without being heavy, allowing me to make very quick notes if needed. It features a nice pump fill system that is very easy to use. It holds a large amount of ink and can be converted to a WHOPPING ~6mL eyedropper. The nib and feed may require a bit of tinkering to get your own desired flow-to-flex ratio. A quick Google search will provide several videos on how to tweak it. With some firm pressure and a steady hand the amount of line variation that can be coaxed out of this pen is nothing short of stunning. It is a superb pen to try out flex and a great daily writer. However, it does require a fair bit of force to flex so those looking for a vintage style 'wet noodle' flex, should stick with vintage pens.
