Waterman 12 Eye Dropper – SUPER FLEX  (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 12 Eyedropper in BCHR. The black hard rubber has faded to a dark brown and the chasing has faded some. More so on the the body than the cap. It’s still visible on the body but it still has texture on the cap. The imprints are still pretty crisp. The pen has two gold filled bands which have some light scratching but no brassing. The bottom band has the initials M.E.P. in a nice script engraved. There are some bite marks on the top of the cap. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a nice and wet writing F. It’s feels delicate, light, and smooth as a writer. There is a little bit of a wave in the left tine, but it doesn’t seem to affect performance. The pen has some great flex going up to 1.9mm quite easily. It lays down a lot of ink very quickly when flexing but somehow still manages to be pretty responsive. Great 100 year old pen.

Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex! (SOLD)

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

Here is a lovely black with gold cap Skyline. The pen is in good condition overall. There is some light scratching on the body but nothing major. I’ve buffed and polished much of it out. There is also some light scratching on the gold filled sleeve on the cap and a few tiny dings. The gold filled trim looks good with just some plate loss on the crown of the lever. There is a very tiny crack in the threads. You probably wouldn’t even know it’s there as it’s pretty hard to see. I’ve shellacked the section to the body to stabilize the crack and it should be fine for many more years. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a very wet writing Medium (0.6mm) that is smooth and a nice writer if you like wet pens. It has some very nice flex going up to 2.1mm. Flex comes pretty easy and the nib is pretty responsive for how wet it is. A nice Skyline with a beautiful and wet super flex nib.

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.
