That's class the wrench, the silicon grease...a good looking pen. I'd not thought of buying a demonstrator before. Now, yes.
Now yes, with a semi-flex nib...that is the next step....even for extra.
It was great to ask the knowledgeable customers what do you want, how can we do this well.
I am not sure if they made a pen to price or a pen, and then made a price; there being a huge difference. I'd suspect the latter.
The understated frill on the nib matches the pen. IMO
I don't remember was this a screw out nib, so that one could put on thinner or wider nibs?
Or seeing it disassembles well, that one could buy thicker, thinner and more or semi-flexible nibs.
That ink bottle looked good too.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
