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

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

Here is a Skyline in the demi size with navy blue barrel and gold-filled cap and dome. The pen is in good condition. There is some of the light scratching from use, but it isn’t too bad at all. Most of it came out in the polishing of the body. There is a scratch around the barrel that is from the edge of the cap when the gold-filled sleeve was loose and had slid down around the barrel. It’s issue with this pens, and I have rebounded the sleeve to the cap. I do not see and dings or brassing on the pen. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a glorious XF (0.3mm). You’d be hard pressed to find a better XF writer. It’s smooth and fun to use. It also has some good flex ranging up to 1.6mm. It’s right on the border between good and super flex to me. I graded good flex because it’s a bit stiff and it doesn’t have elite range. Still, I love writing with this pen.
