The New England Airship company, later renamed the Dartmouth Airship Co.,  was the first of its kind in the United States. The year was 1929, a challenging time for our country.

Due to the slowing economy, as well as the delayed growth of the airships passenger business, the company, in an attempted to generate publicity for the airship, decided to use the blimp for mail delivery. They chose the mooring mast of the Empire State building. The traffic below of onlookers caused the city to ban any future attempts.

Another Massachusetts company, Noodlers Ink, has christened its largest pen the Neponset.

The shape of the Neponset pen is similar to the dirigible and is constructed of the original fountain pen material ebonite, which was vulcanized in 1844 by Charles Goodyear in Massachusetts whose company built the Neponset airship.



The Neponset comes with a three tined music nib, the

“Vishnu Victory”

 “Vishnu Victory” is in honor of the 2.5 million World War II allied soldiers of India as well as the reference to the source for the ebonite used in the pen and the original Neponset blimp.

The 3 tined music nibs has a velvety pen stroke with the ability to greatly vary the line width to the user’s liking. The ink flow is consistent and generous from the three fissure ebonite music feed. The Neponset comes equipped with a piston fill mechanism.

Chestnut, and Red Rebellion series.
