Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex

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

This is a standard size Skyline in brown with gold-filled trim. The body of the pen is in nice condition. There is some very light scratching throughout, but most of it disappeared when I buffed and polished the pen. There are a two or three scratches near the cap that are still minor but wouldn’t buff out. The trim looks very good. There is just a hint of plate loss on the sides of the middle of the lever from where the cap rubs when posted. The 14kt Eversharp nib is a wet writing F (0.45mm). I’d call it a true Fine, and it is a smooth and a very lovely writer. The nib also has some nice flex going up to a large 1.9mm (BBB). The flow is very wet and has no problems keeping up. It has average responsiveness. It’s a nice all around Skyline that won’t disappoint.
