Wahl-Eversharp Skyline (Demi) – Good Flex

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

Here is a Skyline in the Demi size in black with a gold-filled cap. The pen is in great shape. There is some light surface scratching from normal use, but it’s mostly unnoticeable and a lot of it buffed out with some micro mesh. The gold-filled cap is also in great condition. The only two flaw I see are a couple of tiny pin pricks near the top of the cap (see pic). They are really, really small. The cap has no brassing. The lever does have some plate loss near the middle due to posting the cap. It’s a rarity to NOT find plate loss there on these pens. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a wet XF that is buttery smooth. Eversharp was renown for the writing quality of their nibs and rightly so. And this one is no exception. The flex on this has pretty decent range going from XF to BBB (1.6mm). It’s a bit too firm to grade as a super flex. Responsiveness is decent. Flow is good. Overall, another great Skyline.
