Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Medium Flex! (SOLD)

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

This is a brown Skyline in standard size with a gold-filled cap. The pen is in very good condition. There is one ding on the cap that I tried to catch with a camera but isn’t showing up well. There are a couple other very, very minor pin drop dings as well, but they take work to see. There are few teeth marks on the crown of the cap. The body has very minimal minor scratchy, especially for a Skyline. And the gold-filled lever shows no signs of brassing. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a very wet M/F (0.5mm), though I’ve used much wetter Skylines before. The nib is an absolute pleasure to use. The pen has a pretty good flex range going up to 1.8mm, but the nib just lacks the responsiveness of a higher quality flex. Still it is a very nice Skyline that writes beautifully.
