Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Super Flex

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

Here is a nice Skyline in the army brown body with a gold-filled cap.The body has only surface marks from normal use for the most part. There are some small deeper scratches on the derby (see pics). There are just a few tiny marks on the gold-filled cap sleeve but nothing major or obvious. There is no brassing on it or the clip. There is a little bit of plate loss on the crown of the lever from the cap being posted. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is a wonderful Fine. It writes a lovely wet and smooth line that just feels like a what a nib should fee like. The flex on this is also wonderful going easily to BBB (1.7mm) with plenty of ink flow to keep up. The responsiveness is also really solid. Overall, a superb Skyline.
