FP120. Noodler's Standard Flex Pen Noodler's Standard Flex Pen. This flexible nib fountain pen produces reasonable thicks and thins from pressure. Use it for larger writing and expressive handwriting. It is not suitable for smaller Ornamental Scripts because the nib can't produce the fine hairlines possible with dip pen pointed nibs. For a fatter barrel, purchase the FP125. Noodler’s Ahab Flex Pen. The same flex nib is used in the Standard and Ahab Fountain Pens.
Choose Barrel Color:
Clear - Our most popular "color," which makes it easy to see how much ink is left in the pen.
For filling the pen with ink from a bottle, the Standard Flex Pens have a twist-fill piston mechanism that is part of the barrel.
This is a fun pen to write with and has an extremely flexible nib - for a fountain pen. You can easily go from thin to thick and back, but the unstressed stroke is far from a hairline. (An extremely light touch and some speed can produce a thinner line.) It would be useless for small copperplate scripts. The pen is useless for small copperplate scripts. You can produce copperplate scripts only in larger sizes. You can only produce monoline or nearly monoline writing in smaller sizes. It has potential for wedding invitation addressing where the script is more-or-less monoline perhaps with some more heavily stressed strokes (such as Spencerian). - John

M91. Zig Wink of Stella Marker Zig Wink of Stella Marker.
This marker is glittery, but with a more subtle sparkle than our other metallic pens. Rather than being a rollerball like most "glitter" pens, the 0.8mm tip performs more like a felt-tip marker. The sparkles seem to be more evenly distributed than other pens/markers.
Available in a variety of colors. Clear is the most popular - use it to add a bit of sparkle on top paint, ink & other markers.
