The Ahab Piston flex fountain pen was introduced in 2011. The Ahab is larger than both the Konrad flex fountain pen and the Standard Flex nib Creaper. It features a flexible #6 steel nib and ebonite feed, and fills through a slide piston mechanism, which is accessible by removing the barrel. Creator Nathan Tardiff is proud of the fact that this pen is made of a celluloid derivative and is technically biodegradable and formed from a "renewable resource". 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.
