Noodler's Neponset Acrylic Fountain Pen - Victory Garden


The Noodler's Neponset Victory Garden Acrylic fountain pen was introduced in December 2014. This long-awaited new fountain pen is the largest of the Noodler's pen line yet, at 6" long - even larger than the Ahab. The inspiration behind the design of the Neponset fountain pen comes from history: the shape of the Neponset is similar to the dirigible (airship), to which Founder Nathan Tardiff's family has ties.

The NeponsetVictory Garden Acrylic fountain pen is fitted with an ebonite feed and 3-tined music nib, called the "Vishnu Victory" in honor of WWII Allied soldiers in India. The name is also in reference to the original material used on the Neponset Blimp, christened by Nathan's grandfather.

The 3-tined music nib gives the ability to greatly vary line width, and lays down a generous amount of ink. The pen fills through a slide piston mechanism, which is accessible by removing the barrel. The Neponset Acrylic is made of acrylic acetate, in many gorgeous colors and patterns, with variation in swirl patterns within each color.

We strongly recommend you to give the pen a good flush with water or J.B Pen Flush before use, to clean out any residual machining oils used to cut the feeds for these pens, which will resolve most initial ink flow issues.

Nice May 3, 2016
Reviewer: Terry Couch from Sheboygan, WI United States  
I like a fat pen.  Neponset satisfies that liking.  I have not done any writing with the Musical nib.  I replace it with an Anderson Pens EF nib.  I promptly put silicon grease on the barrel threads converting the pen to an eye dropper.  I am seeing ink accumulate in the cap, minor capillary action drawing ink into the cap.  

It is a mild annoyance, but it hasn't stopped me from writing with this pen.  When it is time to refill the pen, I'll give it a test run with the converter the pen came with.

Beautiful Pen with the right ink March 25, 2015
Reviewer: K Neal from Chicago, USA  
Much smoother than a Noodler's Ahab and prettier two. The flex took some getting used to - good flex but not as much as the basic Noodler's pens. It balances well in the hand and keeps a good line. I tried Waterman ink at first but it dried up and stopped flowing pretty quickly. Once I switched over to Noodler's Eel ink it was fine.

The Noodler's Neponset pen February 2, 2015
Reviewer: SANDY GIUFFRIDA from WEST SAYVILLE, NY United States  
I had seen this pen on the specials link and decided that I would like to add it to my collection. I am very happy with the pen with it's unique look and style, and it writes very smoothly. What was more astonishing was the speed in which I received the pen. I have added Anderson Pens to my favorite bar. Great company.
