Noodler's Neponset Ebonite Fountain Pen - Black


The Noodler"s Neponset Ebonite fountain pen shown here in Black, was introduced in 2013, and released to the public on a larger scale in November 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 Neponset Ebonite fountain pen in Black 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-tine 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.

Good Pen, a little high though December 21, 2015
Reviewer: Kevin Cherry from Granby, MO United States  
I like the pen and most of them time it writes pretty good.  I still thing it has more issues than it should for what it costs.  I compare Noodler's flex pens with Fountain Pen Revolutions pens as the price and, feed, steel nibs, and filling mech is basically the same.  The FPR pens seem to flex with less pressure than Noodler's, and they don't railroad as much.  The draw back, they take 2 weeks to get them.  The Neponset lay down a really wide, wet line when flexed out.  With very little pressure, it still does great and really never runs dry.  When flexing though, my right side railroads, and the left side doesn't (it's got three tines).  Still too many issues for &75, but little regrets at this point.

Music Nib! November 17, 2014
Reviewer: Crystal N from San Francisco, CA United States  
I was super excited to test out this pen and I was not disappointed. The construction is solid with a great ergonomic and elegant construction. The music nib is so flexy, it does require a little more force than I thought it would, but really its a joy to use I am very pleased.
