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

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

Here is a nice Skyline in burgundy with the gold-filled cap. The pen is in great condition. It has some very minimal light scratching on the body. The gold-filled trim is in good condition overall. There is some plate loss on the crown of the lever from the cap rubbing on it when posted. There are no ding or scratches in the gold-filled cap. There is a tiny little ding on the clip. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a very wet writing F (0.5mm) that is glassy smooth. It has very good range of flex going up to 1.9mm!! (BBB+).  The wetness of the feed does reduce the responsiveness as the ink just pours out of this when flexed. But if you want some sheening, this is the pen for you. The ease of flex is on the border between “super flex”  and “good flex.” Still its a great Skyline.
