Also wondering...will you use any of these pens?

Both pens have great deal of character.

 

The Marukin looks to be a large pen, and as it is an eyedropper, must hold quite a lot of ink!

 

The material of the ASKA looks to have great depth. Is it celluloid? Looks to have design elements I've seen on other makes of pen. Wahl? Omas?

I would say Nettuno (Superba is the model name):

Yes, it is a vintage pen. It should be from the mid '30.
Nettuno was a Bologna producer its owner was a friend of Armando Simoni (the Omas founder), this particular pen was produced for Fetti a store in Rome which is still open (it is close to the Pantheon).

I thought I had seen Marukin someplace else...On Pentrace

 

Jim Mamoulides recently shared pictures he had made for a 2006 Penant issue.

yep. it's the same pen.
it's lovely indeed. I have never seen such nice RMHR before.
And the size is quite large. made another picture for comparison side by side of a RHR Duofold:

C, please let me know if you decide to sell it.

 

Here are a couple of Gehas that came my way in 2016.

These GEHA are superb. I did not know they came with RG caps too! Fantastic!
...when it comes to the Marukin, I will contact you by mail.
