Noodler's Ahab Flex Fountain Pen - Midas Pearl

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.

2 of 5 Quality Reflects price June 13, 2018
Reviewer: Colin Polonenko from Langley, BC Canada  
Pen feels very cheap (ie clip is loose no matter how much I try to fasten the top.  Nothing about it feels like a quality item.  I would not trust this pen in my pocket not to break.

That being said the flex nib on it is reasonable and can get a good amount of flex.  I noticed very little skipping when flexing the pen out writing for a while.  This pen can also be forced to take a dip pen nib (the nib needs to be modified)

3 of 5 Unreliable June 29, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from London, ON Canada  
This pen works well, except for when is doesn't. Sometimes I can write for this pen for awhile without any mishaps, and sometimes I can barely complete even a single sentence or even a single word using flex. Sometimes I have to keep an extra page handy while using this pen to fix it when it randomly stops writing. This is after adjustments and heat setting.

This is probably the most unreliable pen I have ever used, but with that being said it still produces very nice variation... when it works.

4 of 5 Satisfied. February 13, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from GTA, ON Canada  
Very light pen,a hair heavier than a Lamy Safari.
The material is unlike any other pen that I have. The cap feels and looks far more finished than the barrel but it does add character to the pen. (At least that's what I'm telling myself.)

It's my first flex pen and I intend to use a lot of sheening inks with it. In hindsight I should have purchased the demonstrator version.
Happy with the purchase regardless.

4 of 5 Feels good in the hand November 15, 2014
Reviewer: MJ from Saint John, NB Canada  
Not a heavy pen at all, but it feels good in the hand. Some have said that the flexible nibs are difficult to get used to but I didn't find it so. Good quality and excellent price.
