This week’s pen is the Dec 25th Creaper Flex by Noodler’s. I’ve been a huge fan of Noodler’s inks but this is my first Noodler’s pen. I bought this on sale at Goulet Pens and they don’t seem to have this particular color at the moment but if you go check them out there are plenty of other colors.
I had read that the Creaper Flex are pretty small pens, so I was excited to get one to try out the size for my hands.
I can see how this might be a bit uncomfortable to use if you have larger hands as the barrel is really quite narrow, but it feels pretty good in mine.
I can see myself using this pen quite a lot in my pen rotation. It is fairly light, feels good to write with and its narrow width makes it particularly good fit for my hand.
This is a piston fill pen, which is filled a little differently.
- comes in various styles and colors
- replaceable parts
- narrow barrel
- writes nice
- light without the cap but not flimsy feeling
- hard grip
- no cartridge option
- threads for the cap tend to dig into my finger
Overall grade: B+
I kind of want more than one of these pens because the narrow grip is really nice for me, but I wish the threads were just a bit higher up on the pen.
