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

Here is a nice all black Skyline in Demi size. The pen is in good condition. There are some light scratches on the body as is typical for these pens, but I have buffed out most of it. There is some deeper scratching by the bottom of the clip where it rubbed against the clip when the derby was removed at some point. The gold filled trim looks great with just a slight amount of plate loss on the tip of the lever. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a butter smooth writing F/M (0.5mm). It has a good degree of wetness. Not overly wet but not at all dry. It does have some flex going up to 1.7mm, but it is a bit stiff to flex and you have to slow down a bit for the flow to keep up. Still a great writer with some flex.
