Noodler's Ivory Darkness Flex Nib Release 1/17 at 12pmEST

The next round of Noodler's Piston-Fill Flex Pens are coming in, though they will be a bit late. The weather here in Virginia is fine, but it's a mess down in Georgia where the pens are coming from. Originally, we were supposed to get them this past Tuesday, then Wednesday, then Friday. Well, currently they're sitting on a UPS truck in Georgia, and the new arrival date is Monday. We thought we were setting a really nice buffer to schedule our release for Monday the 17th (6 days after the 'original' arrival date), but the weather threw us for a loop.



We have a policy at GouletPens.com not to sell anything that's not 'in our hands', as we get missing items and backorders ALL the time and it creates a mess. However, we are making an exception for this release. We've already told everyone it was going to be this date, and people have been rearranging their schedules and waiting to combine orders, etc. to fit this day. We have absolute confirmation that the pens are on their way, and barring the UPS truck spontaneously combusting, we will have them in...eventually. Right now they're scheduled for Monday, and if that changes we'll let you know. But we're still going to release them for sale on Monday at 12pm EST.

We are getting a few (very few) colors like turquoise, clear, navy, and burgundy, and they will go very fast because of how few we have. Your best chance of getting a flex nib pen if you show up after 12:05 is Ivory Darkness:


We'll be posting the sale of the pens on the blog on Monday, as well as sending out email notifications as soon as we make them available if you sign up here. They're $14 each (no limit per person on the Ivory Darkness).

  1. I guess that means UPS doesn't observe the federal holiday (Martin Luther Day) on Monday, 17 Jan if they'll be delivering.

  2. They won't be delivering that day. It's a holiday for USPS, but that doesn't mean we can't still release the pens!

  3. I am excited for the Ivory Darkness. Too bad they aren't in at the moment, but I can attest that things have been messed up. There was snow covering the median on I-77 on my way down to Charleston, SC on Friday. What a weird week for the South.

  4. So is it by UPS or USPS? I know that FedEx is working today, we just got a delivery.

  5. John, the pens are coming to us by UPS. They're working, they have been since last week. The problem is that they're backlogged from the time they were down early last week, so the shipment keeps getting pushed back. We ship everything out USPS.
