Wahl-Eversharp Skyline (Demi) – Good Flex (SOLD)

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

Here is Skyline, Demi size, in green with gold filled trim. The body looks great with only minimal light scratching from normal use and most of it buffed and polished out. The gold-filled trim is also about as good as you can find in a Skyline with no brassing to speak of. The name “Lois Jean Brooks” is etched in the side of the barrel. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a very smooth F. It is wet but not a gusher, and makes for a really nice normal writer. The nib does have some flex. The range of the nib is really good going from F to BBB (1.8mm), and it is pretty responsive as well. Ease of flex is a bit on the stiff side and you will start to get some railroading after you’ve flexing for a bit unless you are using some really wet ink. Still, this nib is better than anything you can in modern stock flex nibs.
