I have a Noodler's Konrad I purchased from Goulet. When I first recieved it, it smelled so strongly that I couldn't use it. As advertised, the smell reduced dramatically over time, and now it wouldn't bother me. But still, if I use the pen for a few minutes, my hand gets a little tingly/itchy. I suspect I'm actually allergic to it, in a way. (This doesn't surprise me. There are a few other products that do this to me.)
My question is this: Are all Noodler's pens made of the same material? I'd really like a flex pen to play with, and see Ahabs pretty cheap. But if I'd have the same reaction, I should pass, regardless of the value.
