Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex (SOLD)

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. The derby is slightly faded to a lighter brown than the body. The name “Don Higley” is etched in the side in very small print. The gold-filled trim is in good condition as well. A tiny bit of plate loss on the crown of the lever. There are also two small dings  on the gold-filled cap. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a smooth and wet writing F/M (0.5mm). It’s definitely wet, but I wouldn’t call it a gusher. The flex on it comes pretty easily and has a great range going up to BBB (Sorry, the picture is wrong. It goes to 1.8mm). The responsiveness is decent but not amazing. Overall, a fantastic Skyline.
