Wahl-Eversharp Skyline Classic Fountain Pen
Excellent pen. Writes beautifully with perfect ink flow. I do my own nib adjusting and this pen was perfect out of the box. The nib is semi-flexible and line variation is easy. I routinely use this new pen alongside a vintage skyline made in the year I was born, 1942. I highly recommend the skyline series. They are well made and worth the price.
I love this pen more with each passing day
I probably have 10 "favorite" pens in my collection, but this one is top 2 or 3. I love the colors: the upscale-looking Verdigris barrel pairs perfectly with the SS cap for a classic, 20th-century-throwback look. The barrel is light in contrast with the pen cap. I would not write without my cap posted; the pen would be too light. I would almost call this the single design flaw in the new plastic-barrel Skylines. HOWEVER, the fabulous, flexy, butter-soft F/M nib on this pen would make up for any and all shortcomings. Really, this is my No. 1 favorite nib. It moves across the page like a dream. I am able to pull off huge variations in line thickness; the finished product looks like it's been done with a calligraphy pen. I have to add here that I am a medium nib fanatic, but I would still recommend this pen (which only comes in the combined F/M option) to anyone. IMO, the Wahl-Eversharp Skyline is the Rolls Royce of the classic fountain pen world, but at a Buick price.
