A pen for people who want to know how pens work
These pens were manufactured by Noodler's Ink especially for people to tinker with. If there were such a thing as a "hobbyist pen," this would be it. It comes with a full sheet of instructions, a flexible nib, and a hand-carved ebonite feed. The object is to tinker with that feed and nib until you get your desired result in terms of flexibility, "wetness," and general overall writing feel. It is a piston filled pen, and you can also turn it into an eyedropper style if you wish, by adding rubber "o" rings. The pen body is a vegetal resin material. It has been "accused" of having an offensive odor, but mine does not. It's not the most beautiful pen in the world, but it certainly is fun. Just select something else if you do not want to fool with it, because you'll get your fingers inky before you have it set up. Oh, and don't work at your desk. Work in the kitchen or workroom with lots and lots of paper towels. I hope you have as much fun as I did. My flexible nib is flexing nicely, and I'm ready to try the o-ring conversion.
I have given the pen five stars for performance and reliability, but that assumes you have worked on it. I have turned mine into a five star pen. Was this review helpful? Yes No 0 of 0 users found this review helpful. Tweet
