Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super/Good Flex (SOLD)

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

Here is a very nice standard size Skyline in burgundy with a gold-fill cap and trim. There is just some very light scratching on the body, which is typical of these pens. But I have buffed and polished most of it away. There is just a tiny prick of a ding on the cap. The only brassing I see is just a bit on one side of the lever. The 14kt. Skyline nib is a nice XF with some flex. There seem to be fewer XF flex Skyline nibs than say F to M, so I always enjoy it when I do. The nib writes smooth and wet. It’s really a lovely writer. The flex on this pen is a bit hard to grade. It has super flex range, responsiveness, and ink flow, but it is a bit on the stiff side. It’s still more than capable of some really nice flex work.
