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

Here is a gorgeous burgundy Skyline with a pin stripe cap. The pen is in very good condition except for one flaw. As is not uncommon with these Skylines, the barrel cracked where it attaches to the section. I have sealed the crack and shellacked the section to the barrel to ensure stability. There is light scratching on the body, but nothing serious and I have buffed much of it out. The gold trim is on very good condition with only some very light plate loss on the lever. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is an XF with good flex ability. It’s a hard nib to grate. It is the range and responsiveness of a super flex, but it is a bit too stiff to be graded as such. Still it produces some nice flex writing.
