Wahl-Eversharp Gold-Filled Skyline – Super Flex

Wahl-Eversharp Gold-Filled Skyline – Super Flex

This is a standard size Skyline in a full gold-filled body. Overall, the condition is pretty good. The only spot of brassing I could see is a little on the edges of the lever from rubbing on the pen cap when it is posted. There is a decent sized ding on the body (see pic), and one very small ding on the cap. Often these pens are full of pin prick dings and scratches all over. The 14kt. Eversharp nib is beautiful, wet writer. Silky smooth and soft nib with lots of flow. It writes normally as a F/M (0.55mm). The flex comes quite easily with decent range going up to at least 1.5mm. For a near medium nib, the flex responds with surprising snappiness. The flow is more than enough to keep up, which isn’t surprising for a Skyline. Overall, great pen in a durable and beautiful metal body.
