Wahl-Eversharp Skyline – Good Flex

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

Here is a beautiful Skyline with a gold-filled cap and gold-filled derby to match. The pen is in very nice condition overall. The navy blue body has only minor surface scratching and has buffed shiny and smooth. The lever has a bit of wear and some gold loss on it’s peak due to posting the cap. The cap does have some minor scratching on the derby, and some very small dings here and there, but it is void of any brassing. The Eversharp 14kt. is a wet and buttery smooth F. It’s a glorious writer and well living up to the famed quality of vintage Eversharp nibs. It’s flex is good but not a “super flex.” It ranges from F (0.4mm) to BB (1.6mm). The flow is good and keeps up well. Responsiveness is decent. It just lacks the ease of flex to grade in the “super” category. Still, this is a beautiful Skyline that is a superb writer and offers some decent flex.
