Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Good Flex (SOLD)

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

This is a lovely standard size Skyline in green with a green and gold pinstripe cap. The pen is in overall very nice condition. The gold filled trim looks excellent with no signs of plate loss. There is some very light scratching on the body from use, but I have buffed out much of it. There are also two very small indentations on the body in the lever box. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a superb writing “F” (0.5mm). It really feels like a medium. The flow is just perfect. Wet and juicy, but not overly wet to maximize shading of the ink. It is smooth and soft and just a beautiful writer. The flex on this pen has nice range going all the way up to BBB (1.8mm). It really has many qualities of a “super flex” nib, but it is just a bit too stiff for super flex. Still you can do some nice flex writing with this nib. If you love Skylines (and how can you not?), this is a great option.
