Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Good Flex (SOLD)

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

Here is a standard size Wahl-Eversharp Skyline in burgundy with a gold-filled cap. The body of the pen has some light scratching of normal use typical of these Skylines. Much of it I have buffed out with micro mesh and some polish. There are a couple of very small dings on the gold-filled cap but not plate loss. The lever does have some plate loss on the edges of the crown of the lever caused by the posting the cap. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is pure joy to write with. It is wet F / M (0.5mm) that feels buttery on paper. The Skyline design is intended to fit perfectly in the hand, and with this nib you just don’t want to put the pen down. It also has some flex ranging up to 1.8mm. Flex is a bit on the firm side due to it’s wetness, it lacks some responsiveness. I would grade it as a high “medium flex” or a low “good flex.”
