Noodler’s Nib Creaper Rollerball Tip Replacement

Noodler’s just came out with the Nib Creaper Rollerball pen, a refillable rollerball pen that uses fountain pen ink! It’s a really cool pen and one I’ve enjoyed playing with. One of the best things about it is that the tip is replaceable in case you accidentally drop or damage it.

Here’s the pen:

It’s a clear demonstrator piston-filling rollerball pen. It uses the same fountain pen ink you (likely) already have.

 The feed is threaded and unscrews from the body of the pen.

The part that you actually receive when you purchase the replacement nib is only the rollerball tip and wick, not the ebonite feed (just be aware of that!). I know many people were anticipating using the replacement tips to convert other pens to rollerballs, but the replacement tip is only for the rollerball pen.

 Removing the tip from the feed couldn’t really be easier. A pair of pliers and a little tug will take care of it!

To put the new one in, just push it in with your fingers (don’t push the tip of the rollerball against anything hard, otherwise you might end up damaging the tip you just replaced!).

Then screw the feed back into the body. Done!

Then you’re all set!
