Noodler’s Konrad Acrylic Flex Fountain Pens: 7 New Colors

Noodler’s has released another batch of Konrad Acrylic Flex Fountain Pens, only the second batch of them that we’ve ever seen. The first batch was in April of 2013, you can see a video of my release here.

These $40 pens are made of acrylic acetate, the same gorgeous material you see typically in much more expensive pens. There are 7 new colors to show, and since there is so much depth and pearlescense to them, I thought it would be best to show them off in a video (even though they won’t be around long, probably). While we have them though, you can pick them up at GouletPens.com. We have been told there are more colors to be released soon, though soon is a relatively loose term when it comes to Noodler’s pen releases!

The new colors are:

Noodler’s Konrad Acrylic, in Appalachian Pearl

Noodler’s Konrad Acrylic, in Coral Sea

Noodler’s Konrad Acrylic, in Emeralds of the Sun

Noodler’s Konrad Acrylic, in Ghostly Lapis

Noodler’s Konrad Acrylic, in Marbled Marianas

Noodler’s Konrad Acrylic, in Olde Salem

Noodler’s Konrad Acrylic, in Victory Garden

What do you think of the new colors? Leave me a comment below, I’d love to hear about your favorite.

Write On,
Brian Goulet

    I have been trying not to spend more money on pens… And then you posted this. Now, what color do I want?

  • Joseph Quinton

    Very nice pens, Brian. I think the Appalachian Pearl is perhaps my favorite. I do not like flex nibs…..can you replace these nibs with the Goulet #6 nibs?

  • Marc

    I like the colours. They're pretty cool. But they're too flashy for me. I like subtler, less attention-grabbing colours. (That's probably because I don't want to draw too much attention to my hobby/obsession.)

  • Becca

    Love the Ghostly Lapis. Just sad that it's out of stock!

    I put a Goulet B nib in my Konrad and it is the best! (I didn't like the Goulet F so much with the Konrad, but it's perfect for my Jinhao X450, funny enough :D)

  • Joseph Quinton

    Thank you, Keri. I generally prefer a Medium or Broad nib.

    The B nib in the Konrad is a fairly wet writer, I've found – it makes for great shading and a nice, thick line, if that's what you want. I personally love it – most of my other pens are fine or medium-fine, too.

    excellent, greetings from Mexico

  • Brent

    Man the ones I wanted to get sold out so fast! I guess I'll have to wait for another batch. 😛

    You can replace them with the Goulet #6 nibs (and they are wonderful), but Noodler's just started offering non-flex nibs for the pens. Goulet is throwing one in for free if you order a Konrad/Ahab in December

  • Yeah, I'm really bad like that 😉

  • Yes you can, i have a video on that here: http://www.inknouveau.com/2013/04/goulet-nibs.html

  • An excellent point! The Noodler's non-flex nibs are fine/medium size, so try that and see how you like it first, and if that isn't to your liking, get a Goulet one.

  • That works out well!

  • Fair enough, these colors definitely are flashier, save perhaps the Appalachian Pearl.

  • Yeah…we didn't get many of them and they were gone almost immediately 🙁

  • It definitely is…the Konrad flows wet anyway, because the feed is made to put out a lot of ink to keep up with the flex nib. But the Jowo broads are pretty intense as well.

  • Hola!

  • Sorry about that 🙁 They were probably gone before I even did this blog post, we got them on Friday. I debated about posting this knowing that some would be out, but I thought it would at least be good to have these pens in video form for posterity…

    Yeah, the pens usually look better in video form, because I'm able to show you a lot more what they look like than in a picture. It's still not as good as real life, but it's closer. That's why I like to do videos like this when I can.

    The Appalachian Pearl is gorgeous! Guess everyone else thinks so too, 'cause they're gone.

  • Marc

    That's not to say I don't like them. I do like them. But I'd be disinclined to purchase a bright pen.

    I think… but maybe flashy is good for at home! 🙂

  • Sara light-Waller

    I think it'll be Ghostly Lapis for me!

  • Catski1

    I had my eye on a few. They were gone in the 30 mins I was in the Dr Office. I hope Nathan can get us some more soon. I saw the Ghostly Lapis sell out before I could checkout. I've wanted one since I got into FPs and will hopefully have better luck next order. Thanks for the video, I only wish Nathan had a few "Santas Helpers". Thanks Brian and Goulet Staff.

    I gotta say none of the new colors really work for me. I just don't like the dual color schemes. I do see colors I think are really beatiful though in these samples.

    For instance the emerald portion in the Emeralds of the sun pen. If they made one entirely in that green pearlesence and no annoying orange thrown in, I'd buy that, it would be beatiful. The same pattern repeats itself to me in a lot of the pens, making a pen with just one of the colors would be superior to my tastes.

    The himalayan red is probably my favorite but if that emerald green could made stand alone it'd be my favorite.
