This is a GEHA 705 with a wonderfull OBB-Italic/Stub nib...

...I would say it's somewhere between a stub and an italic, the nib is 14K 585 Gold and the best thing - it's very flexible! puddle.gif



The pen has also the famous GEHA-Reservoir in the nib-feed, when you run out of ink, just pull the green part on the feed back into
the section and you will be able to use few more drops of ink... the pen is about the same size as PELIKAN 200, maybe a little bigger...

The pen is from the 1950-1960 period (if I remember correctly its 1956), it's used - but in great condition, the piston filler is working
perfect!!! There is a large ink window and above it also have a clear part of the grip-section...

Some like flexible nibs, other like italics - but here is something for the few who maybe like both of them - in the same nib!

Pen: 55,55 USD

Shipping: Registered mail... US - 11,- USD / EU 7,- USD

THERE ARE 10 PICTURES IN THIS POST, IT CAN TAKE FEW SECONDS FOR ALL PICS TO SHOW UP!

Hi,

I was the one quick on the email draw. Are you telling me that the pen won't make my monkey scribbles look like Bojan's hand?????? Ooooo Nooo!!My last hope.

I understand the love for these interesting nibs and I will contact you if I ever tire of the pen. I've even resorted to grinding my own nibs to a stub/italic. They still write! Yea! Haven't had the nerve to do my Omas... yet.

Nice score! Geha pens are very nicely made, not well known in the USA but popular in Germany. A flexible OBB sounds like fun. Enjoy! smile.gif
