Noodler's Ink is a small American company run by Nathan Tardif in Southern Massachusetts, USA. The name Noodler's comes from a technique of catching catfish by hand. Noodling involves wading into the water and feeling around for small crevasses and catching the catfish who have backed themselves inside by holding onto the outside edges of their open mouth.

Nathan says it is the ultimate battle between man and beast and your bank balance and social standing have no bearing on your ability. The catfish can be seen on all the ink bottles and packaging.

Noodler's Ahab Flex is a resin bodied fountain pen with plunger filling mechanism and fine-medium width flex steel nib. It features a screw fit cap with a polished metal clip. It is postable with a light cap so we don't find it upsets the balance when it is posted, however it is long.

It has a closed length of 139mm, a posted length of 170mm while the barrel (and nib) length is 128mm. It has a plunger ink capacity of 1.8ml and an eye dropper of 4.8ml.

We suggest thoroughly flushing out the pen before use with luke warm (possibly with a tiny drop of washing detergent, but not soapy) water to remove any residual production process dust or lubricant oil from the nib feed to ensure a smooth ink flow.

N.B - This is for one pen. Two pens are pictured so you can see it capped and posted.
