Wahl-Eversharp Skyline (Demi) – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a Wahl-Eversharp Skyline Demi size in chocolate brown. The pen is in very good condition. There is a bit of brassing on the lever, but that is about it. The rest of the gold trim looks great. The nib is a delightful XF (0.3mm) that is pretty wet and smooth. A joy for normal writing. The flex is decent, though the numbers look a bit better than it feels. In grading this “good flex,” I went more on the look than the feel. It feels more like “medium flex,” but then you start seeing what you are writing and it turns out better than you expect. This nib looks and feels more like Eversharp’s “Signature” nib, which many would call a “semi-flex” nib.
