Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex! (SOLD)

 

IMG_6003

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

This is a very classy green Wahl-Eversharp Skyline. The pen has some very minor, light scratching, but most of that I have buffed out. I could find no signs of brassing on the gold filled trim. The 14kt. Eversharp nib writes as a very wet F (0.5m). It is smooth and very juicy and really feels more like a medium. It flexes with good ease and has an excellent range (0.5mm-2.2mm). This Skyline, like all Skylines, feels great in the hand. Just a perfectly balanced, sleek design.

Sheaffer Balance – Triumph Nib  (On Ebay)

Here is a nice, sleek Lifetime (White Dot) Sheaffer Balance. So named because of how well balanced this pen design is. The black celluloid looks quite good. Only very light scratching present. Imprints look good. There is a personalization that reads “Eileen Howard.” The gold filled trim is in decent condition. There is some brassing on the lever and just a tad at the bottom of the clip.

Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (SOLD)

IMG_6149

Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here a superb Waterman 52V in BCHR. This is one of my favorite sized Watermans. It has the bulk of the 52 and feels like one when posted, but is also compact and portable. The black hard rubber is still very black. Virtually no fading. The chasing is still very good and the imprints are great. The nickel plated clip is mint and the lever has only very, very slight wear visible only by magnification. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a nice and smooth F with super flex ability. It has a range of 0.4mm to 2.0mm. A very gorgeous and minty vintage pen.

SIZE:  4 3/8″ Capped

NIB: Waterman #2, F to BBB (0.4mm-2.0mm),  SUPER FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

Wahl-Eversharp Skyline (Demi) – Super Flex (SOLD)

IMG_6117

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

This is a Skyline in Demi in size in brown plastic with a gold filled cap and trim. The pen is in good condition. There is very light scratching on the body, but after buffing and polishing it’s greatly reduced. The cap has a few very small and minor dings. Nothing you could really capture well in a photo. There is some very slight wear to the gold filled lever and wear, but they look pretty good. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a great XF that writes smooth and glassy. It also has some good flex going up to 1.8mm. It has very good responsiveness allowing for some nice crisp flex writing. The feed is also excellent providing plenty of ink for flexing (you aren’t going to be railroading with it), but not so much that it makes normal writing sloppy. A superlative pen.

SIZE:  4 7/8″ Capped

NIB: Eversharp 14kt., XF to BB (0.3mm-1.8mm) Super Flex (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

Wahl-Eversharp Doric w/ “Flexible” Nib – Wet Noodle (SOLD)

IMG_5823

Wahl-Eversharp Doric – Wet Noodle – (See Price Here)

Here is a great 1st generation Wahl-Eversharp Doric in black with gold-filled trim and a great Eversharp “Flexible” nib. The pen is in great condition. It does have some light scratching throughout the pen, which always more obvious in glossy black. The gold filled trim is in good condition. I can only find some light brassing on the band, and it took magnification to see that. To the naked eye, it all looks great. The double check gold seal is still present and looking good. But the stunner on this pen is the fabulous 14kt. Everhsharp, Gold Seal “Flexible” nib. This is a smooth writing XF that has massive flex up to 2.8mm!! This is not a paintbrush, but the flex is quite easy. The feed has no problem keeping up with this monster flexing action.

SIZE:  4 1/2″ Capped

NIB: Wahl-Eversharp #2 Flexible, F to BBB (0.3mm-2.8mm),  WET NOODLE  (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

Waterman 13 – Wet Noodle (SOLD)

IMG_5469

Waterman 13 Eye Dropper – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)

Here is a Waterman 13 (sorry the pic is wrong) with an outstanding wet noodle nib. It is made of smooth black hard rubber (no original chasing) which has greyed and faded a bit though it is till blackish. Imprints are still very good. An accommodation cap was installed at some point and moved much later leaving a blacker outline on the cap where the clip used to be. There also appeared to be some kind of band on the barrel (not an original band though) that was removed and left a blacker outline from where it used to be. The clip still functions but has rusted a bit. The real star of this pen though is the nib. It is a great, almost dip nib like wet noodle. It is extremely fine and flexes up to 2.3mm very easily. It would make a great Copperplate nib. (See Price Here)

SIZE:  5 1/4″ Capped

NIB: Waterman #3, XXF to BBB (0.1mm-2.3mm),  Wet Noodle (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

Waterman 12 1/2 PSF – Super Flex (SOLD)

 

IMG_6060

Waterma 12 1/2 PSF – Super Flex (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman you do not see all that often. It is a 12 1/2 PSF. It is the predecessor to the 52 1/2. The “1/2” means thinner profile and the “PSF” means that it fills by lever. It is made of BCHR. The chasing and imprints are great and the color is very good. Very black. It has two gold-filled bands that appear to have been added after market. The top band actually sticks out over the cap by just a millimeter to so. The bands are in pretty good condition but does have some tiny spots of brassing here and there. The lever has some deep scratching and plate loss where the scratching is. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is superb. It is a great flex nib. It writes normally as an XF (0.3mm) but it is also oblique, which actually adds some character both to your writing and to the flexing. The feed is plenty wet to keep up with it when goes all the way up to 2.0mm, but it does not write over wet normally. It has good responsiveness and is just a pleasure to flex with.

SIZE:  5 1/4″ Capped

NIB: Waterman #2, XF to BBB (0.3mm-2.1mm)  SUPER FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

FILLING: Lever

CONDITION: Good

  • Pen thoroughly cleaned & flushed
