Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex (SOLD)

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

This is standard size Skyline in green with the gold-filled cap. The body is in good condition with only very light surface scratching typical of use. The gold-filled cap is without any brassing, but it does have a few small dings here and there. The clip is without brassing as well. The lever has some plate loss. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a pure joy to use. It is a hard to find butter smooth XF with good but not out of control flow. The flex is also lovely going from XF to BBB (1.7mm). It lays down quite a bit of ink when flexed. It has pretty decent responsiveness. That heavy ink flow keeps it from being really snappy, but it’s also pretty good for how wet it is. A great Skyline, and wow is this nib lovely.
