Noodler Feed Fit

Recommended Posts

I just received the two noodlers I ordered: a Achab and a Konrad - wonderful service by Goulet...

 

Both perform very well with noodler ink (I tried golden brown in the ahab, and 54th massachusetts in the konrad), but after a day I noticed that the konrad is loosing a bit of ink, covering 5-6mm below the nib.

Both were setup with the ebonite feed at ~ 7 fins of the feed visible.

Do you know if it is normal, or should I close the feed more? And by the way, I cannot understand how a feed which is not completely pressed inside can prevent all the ink from gushing out... Still a mistery to me!

It sounds like nib creep which is a normal thing on fountain pens. The reason that the ink does not gush out is due to capillary action, or surface tension, as long as the surface tension is not broken (like when you go to write with the pen) the ink will sit happily in the feed.
