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

Here is a pretty Skyline in burgundy with a large gold-filled band and a gold-filled derby. The pen is in great condition. It does have a few small scratches at the end of the barrel and one next to the bottom of the clip, but otherwise it only has very light scratching. There is some brassing along the bottom of the cap band, and also a little bit of plate loss in the middler part of the lever where a posted cap rubs. There is a small ding in the derby. Overall, this Skyline looks really sharp. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a very wet F/M (0.5mm) and writes very smooth. It has some decent flex up to 1.6mm. I graded this as medium flex because it is not quite responsive enough to be graded higher. Beautiful Skyline in demi size.
