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

This is a nice dark green Wahl Eversharp Skyline standard size. It is in quite good condition. There is some light scratching but I have buffed out a lot of it. There is one bigger scratch next to the bottom of clip where it dug a bit into the cap. Gold filled trim is in good condition with only a slight amount of brassing on the lever. There is also a small ding on the gold band running over the top of the cap. The nib is not the usual extremely wet Eversharp nib. Instead it is a smoothXF/XXF (0.25mm) that is quite drier than most Eversharp nibs I’ve used. I wouldn’t call it dry, just drier than typical for a Skyline. The flex was hard to grade. It is really on the border between good and super flex.
