I bought a Noodlers Ahab from Goulet Pens and I LOVE it. However, my foster dog did not appreciate my attention being split between him and the letter I was writing so he flicked dear Ahab out of my hand. The pen is fine but the nib is beyond repair. I can find all kinds of non-flex replacement nibs out there on the interwebs but my Google-Fu fails when it comes to finding a flexible replacement. Does anyone have any ideas on where I might be able to find something? 

Thanks for your help folks.

Send your photos to the US distributor.

You could buy another Ahab and one of the loose Goulet nibs from the Goulets, and have one for flexy writing and one for non-flexy.

I have never seen the nibs available separately - I think you have to buy a new pen.

There are some #5 nibs listed at http://fountainpenre...fpsupplies.html, including a flexible nib of similar design as Noodler's nibs. I don't know if it's the right size for the Ahab.

From memory, but I am pretty sure the Ahab is a #6. Look at the Goulet (non-flex) nibs - they fit.

The Ahab is a #6. Those Goulet Nibs have always been my fall back if there are no flexabable nibs to be found.

However, another member sent me a PM saying he has an extra Ahab nib or two and is willing to ship them to me  :bunny01:  :bunny01:  :bunny01:  :bunny01:

Some people on FPN have mentioned that contacting the distributor of Noodler with a situation such as that described above has received a replacement nib section in return. I would second the suggestion to send a picture to the distributor. And keep you fingers crossed!

 

Also, check out isellpens.com (no affiliaition) Todd may still have some Ahab available at a nice discount. I have not checked in a while, so I will let you do the heavy work!

Good luck.

Ouch!

 

Let me know if you don't have any luck with getting a replacement. Perhaps we can work something out.

You can ask goulet pen if you can get a replacement nib. The only catch is you have to purchase something along with it. I had my ahab pen nib bent too. Goulet pen was nice enough to send me a replacement nib free of charge along with my purchases.
