Older Noodler’s Ink Fountain Pen


Recommended Posts

Please help me figure out what model of pen this is. I know it’s a Noodler’s Ink Co. Pen, but it doesn’t appear to be a Creaper, Neponset, Ahab, Konrad, or Charlie. I may have purchased it about 10 years ago. It has a sac filler and a fine nib. Marble green.

Hmmm.  The barrel material appears to be ebonite from the look of it -- and I thought that was only ever used for some Neponsets and Konrads (man, if Noodler's made ebonite Konrads in some of the cool colors of rod stock that they used for the Neponsets, I'd have been going "NATHAN!  Take my money!").  Having the pen's size (length, diameter) might help.  Oh, and the Boston Safety models had some colors in ebonite -- I remember Nathan Tardif when those were first being released, explaining at his table at the Commonwealth Pen Show that year about production issues "No, the pens HAVE to have the inner parts made of ebonite as WELL..." but that model pen is clearly different from yours.

Maybe a prototype?  I know that there was an art contest a number of years ago, using Noodler's inks (I didn't hear about it till after the fact, because I was pretty new to fountain pens at the time).  And the prizes were Noodler's pens.  Someone who used to be on FPN designed a deck of Tarot cards with catfish motifs.  I don't know if she ever finished the entire set, but I ended up taking screen shots of the different designs and use them as part of my "screensavers" file on my laptop.  I think the thread where she posted the images was called "When Late Nights Meet Catfish" or something like that.

Hi kirkwrites, 

Could this be your pen? The specs call it "Model 18050". No idea how old this webpage from Jet Pens is....


Don't see the green option, either.

Looks cool--right up my alley!

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
