Needing to sign legal documents, so grabbed my ESSR,
The problem with having just about enough inks is in my case, is asking my self which are permanent, in I go for shading inks mostly.
Having re-read this whole thread the day before yesterday, I knew I had to ink a pen with ESSR.
I have three Geha 790's...two with the first cap, 60s-66, one semi-flex 14 K KM and one 'flexi' (to my surprise; expected a semi-flex) 14 K EF.
The second cap, is from @ '59-60, with the true three rings of the 790. It is a semi-flex 14 K M also. More a F-M than a M even for vintage.
For semi-flex nibs the Geha 790 is a good pen, not too expensive if bought on German Ebay. PM me if you want a German cheat sheet so you can navigate around in a foreign tongue. German Ebay is cheaper than US for German pens.
This did clean up better than the ebay picture.
I had fun at the post office...they 'know' me there the pen nut...showed off the pen and how ESSR changed color.

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.
