Noodler's Ahab Flex Fountain Pen - Truk Lagoon

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 Pleasantly surprised November 27, 2019
Reviewer: Brent from Durham Region  
First off, I was looking for a flex fountain pen to give some flair to my writing and general, my ink "noodling", NOT something to compete with a G dip nib to do copperplate script with. While it doesn't have hairline strokes it delivers very nice line width variation.
I sort of randomly picked the Truk Lagoon pen, but was slightly concerned that it might look or feel cheap, but my suspicions were wrong on both counts. The resin pen feels like a quality tool, not cheap and plasticky like you might suspect, and to my eyes looks better in person than the pictures represent.
After 3 or 4 hard starts in the first few minutes of writing—maybe to be expected—it's been flawless ever since and in general, a pleasure to use.
