Geha Goldschwinge 725

1962
About This Pen

Geha was one of Germany’s longstanding manufacturers of excellent fountain pens that found success both before and after WWII. They revolutionized the use of a “Reservtank”, using the extra space above the pen’s feed as ancillary ink tank. This pen, probably from 1962, is a Reservtank pen,  of black plastic.  It is a piston filler, with a soft broad nib that has wings that clipped to the side of the feed. This pen’s Reservtank works well, and the piston fills smoothly. The “goldschwing” nib writes a soft broad line. The pen’s only flaw is what is believed to be a single (repaired) hairline crack in the slip-type cap, an issue for which these pens and many others of that day are well-known. It is a very nice pen that, due to the cap’s fragility, is probably meant to stay on a desk or be carried in a secure case. $125
