Wahl-Eversharp Skyline (Demi) – Good Flex

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

Here is a nice Wahl-Eversharp Skyline in brown with gold-filled trim. This pen has only light surface scratching on the body from normal use. The cap is in great condition with no dings or dents. The trim overall is in great condition with just a small spot of plate loss on the lever from posting the cap, but you have to look closely to see it. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is wonderful writer. It’s long tines make it an elegant and smooth writer with plenty of wetness. The nib also has some nice “definition.” It’s normally an XF (0.3mm) but flexes up to BB (1.3mm). The flex  comes pretty easily. In fact, you can get this to flex a little with almost very little pressure. But higher than the initial swell, and the nib gets a bit stiffer. Responsiveness is decent, so you can still create some nice flex work with it. There is reasons Skylines are such admired pens, and this one shows off a lot of the reasons why.
