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

Here is a green Skyline with gold filled trim in Demi size. The pen is in pretty good condition. It does have a couple of very small nicks in the cap. I tried to take a picture of them, but they are hard to see. It has the typical light scratching these pens acquire over time, but I have buffed and polished out a lot of it. It still shines. There is some plate loss on the lever, but the rest of the trim is in good condition. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a soft, very springy XF. The flex on this is quite easy. Writing takes a light touch or you will be writing with a thicker, wetter line. Many would call this a semi-flex, but the flex is easy enough and responsive enough to make even this lower flex range look pretty good.
