Wahl-Eversharp Skyline (Gold-Filled) – Super Flex (SOLD)

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

Here is a beautiful Skyline in gold-filled cap, derby, and barrel. The barrel has three small dings on the reverse side of the lever, and one ding on the top of the derby. Other than that the pen is in great condition. No brassing. No plate loss on the lever, clip, or cap side edge of the barrel. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a glorious, wet writing F/M (0.5mm). It is very wet. So if you like wet, you will like this one. If not, then it’s probably not for you. The flex ranges up to a monster BBBB (2.0mm!) with ease. It is nearing wet noodle status but it isn’t quite there. The heft of the gold-filled body feels really nicely balanced even when posted. I really like the feel of this one in the hand. A great, not that easy to find, Skyline.
