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

Here is a standard size Skyline with a ribbed gold-filled body. The pen is in good condition with only a few issues. There is some scratching as is typical on gold-filled pens. And there are a few very small dings. I tried to capture them on camera but was mostly unsuccessful. They aren’t very obvious. Also, if you’ve ever cleaned the ribbed gold-filled Skyline caps, you know that it is almost impossible to get all the tarnish out of the tiny crevices. The same is true for this pen. There is a also a small gap between the top of the “sleeve” of the cap and the beginning of the clip/derby section. Having said all that, I can’t find any brassing on the pen. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a nice, wet, very smooth writing F/XF (0.35mm). It has some very nice flex as well going up to 1.8mm. The flex is quite easy and very smooth. And as is common with a lot of Skylines, you don’t have to worry about ink flow. A real joy to use.
