The Noodler's Neponset Appalachian Pearl Acrylic fountain pen was first introduced in December 2014. The long-awaited new fountain pen is the largest of the Noodler's pen line yet, at 6" long - even larger than the Ahab. The inspiration behind the design of the Neponset fountain pen comes from history: the shape of the Neponset is similar to the dirigible (airship), to which Founder Nathan Tardiff's family has ties.
The Neponset Appalachian Pearl Acrylic fountain pen is fitted with an ebonite feed and 3-tined music nib, called the "Vishnu Victory" in honor of WWII Allied soldiers in India. The name is also in reference to the original material used on the Neponset Blimp, christened by Nathan's grandfather.
LIMITED RELEASE: Through a special collaboration with the Singapore Distributor we've put together a limited release of 10 of these Appalachian Pearl pens. Each of these 10 pens will be personally tweaked by local Nib Master Mr Sunny Koh. These pens are currently out of stock internationally and are slated for a price increase (expected to be USD$10.00) due to rising production costs, and are only expected to retail in Nov later this year.
The 3-tined music nib gives the ability to greatly vary line width, and lays down a generous amount of ink. The pen fills through a slide piston mechanism, which is accessible by removing the barrel. The Neponset Acrylic is made of acrylic acetate, in many gorgeous colors and patterns, with variation in swirl patterns within each color.
