The Noodler's Neponset Ebonite fountain pen 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 Chestnut ripple 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. The Neponset line is made of rippled pattern ebonite, which looks very much like the vintage 1920's Waterman ripple fountain pens. 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.
