Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Good Flex (SOLD)

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

This is a standard size Wahl-Eversharp Skyline in burgundy body and gold-filled cap. The body of this pen is in nice condition with only very light signs of use. The gold-filled trim is in good condition as well as both the lever and clip are completely without plate loss. The cap also has no plate loss, but there are a few dings. Inside Skyline caps is a light, thin ebonite liner that is bonded to the metal exterior. Part of that internal lining is missing, but the cap threads perfectly. The only way you would know this is if you look inside the cap. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a beautiful writing wet F (0.4mm). Eversharp is known for making some really lovely writings nibs, and this one is no exception. The flex on this nib ranges from F to BBB (0.4mm to 1.7mm). That’s a good range, but the flex is a bit too stiff for me to grade it “super flex.” Still it has some good flex on a great nib.
