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

Here is a standard size Skyline in burgundy with a gold-filed cap and trim. This pen is in fair condition. The gold filled cap has quite a few dings and tiny scratches throughout, as well as some plate loss on the lever. There are also some very small scratches at the end of the barrel. The 14kt. Eversharp nib on this pen, though, is very nice. It’s superb writer. Smooth and wet. The flex has decent range going from a F (0.4mm) to BBB (1.8mm). It is a bit on the stiff side of super flex. I probably would have graded it good flex but the nib is pretty responsive making crisper flex still pretty easy. The feed is also fantastic at keeping up. No railroading with this pen. So if you don’t mind a bit extra pressure on the nib, it is still provides very good flex.
