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

Here is a classy looking burgundy Skyline in Demi size with pin stripe cap. Pen looks good overall. There is some typical light scratching throughout the pen, though I have buffed a lot of it out. There are some bite marks on the back of the barrel (see pics). There is a little separation between the derby and the cap “sleeve” (see pics). The gold filled trim is in great condition. There is a little spot on the lever that shows some brassing but that’s about it. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a nice, very smooth writing XF. A very lovely writer. About as good as an XF gets. It has some good flex going from XF to BBB (0.3mm to 1.8mm). But it does lack the responsiveness of a super flex and the flows can lag at times. It worked very well, though, with this Pilot Iroshizuku Tsutsuji.
