Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Good/Super Flex

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

This Wahl-Eversharp Skyline comes in a black body with gold-filled trim. The cap on this particular Skyline is the more uncommon vertical pinstripe (as opposed to the horizontal stripe most commonly seen). The body of the pen is in good condition with only light surface marks from normal use that show up due to the glossy black surface. There is no brassing on the gold-filled trim. There is very light surface scratching on the cap from normal use. There are also two small dings on back side of the cap. The clip and lever are in great condition. This pen also has a section with the convenient amber ink window. The window is still pretty transparent and works well. The 14kt. Eversharp is a lovely writing F (0.4mm). It is wet and smooth with a bit of a squeak. The flex on this nib is good ranging up to BBB (1.7mm). Responsiveness is pretty decent. The flex does come a bit stiff for a “super flex” grade, so I’ve graded it somewhere between “good” and “super” flex. Still its a lovely Skyline.
