Noodler's Konrad Flex Pen in Ripple Ebonite

I wouldn't have ever guessed that I'd be shooting a video about a $40 piston-fill, flex nib, ripple ebonite fountain pen with a clear ink window, but here I am! Nathan Tardif of Noodler's Ink has blown me away again, and I'm here to share with you his latest unbelievable creation.

Work Hard, Play Hard

This is a video to thank everyone who supports the Goulet Pen Co. and Ink Nouveau...we get to enjoy moments like these because of you.

TWSBI Vac-700 Nib Swap

TWSBI is changing the nibs in their Vac-700 from Bock to Jowo, and in the interim there will be one of each shipped with the pen. If you want to swap the Bock (on the pen) with the Jowo (which comes in a separate nib unit), then you'll want to see this video. It's a little different than when you purchase a TWSBI nib unit by itself (not yet available for the Vac-700), which comes with the grip section of the pen. This nib unit only comes with the nib, feed, and housing, and you'll need to pull the nib out of the housing in order to swap it. It's not hard to do, but there are a couple of little things I needed to point out.

Noodler's 54th Massachusetts

Noodler's 54th Massachusetts is a wonderful 'bulletproof' blue-black ink, and is one of the most exciting inks I've seen come out since Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses. I give the backstory to the label, as well as review the ink.
