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

This is a very well preserved standard size Wahl-Eversharp Skyline in burgundy with a gold-filled cap. The pen is in great condition. I cannot even find the normal light scratching to the body typical on these pens, except for the are scratched by the cap being screwed and unscrewed. The gold-filled trim is in superb condition with no signs of brassing. The only ding I could find on the cap is hid behind the clip. The gold-filled exterior on the cap is really a sleeve slid over the cap. This “sleeve” is just a little loose but it does not really slide around and certainly does come off. I only noticed because I always test for such things as it is a common issue with these pens. This Skyline comes with a very rare 14kt. Eversharp XXF nib (0.25mm). These pens are normally in the F/M range and are very, very wet. It has a great flex nib with very good control that goes up to BBB (2.0mm). About as good as you will find in a Skyline.
