Wahl-Eversharp - Skyline - Classic - Fountain Pen
Wahl-Eversharp Skyline Classic Fountain Pen
The Wahl-Eversharp Skyliner pen series was inspired by Henry Dreyfuss’ streamlined design of the New York Central 20th Century Limited locomotive, not the New York Skyline. Collectors take note - these pens are made to the exact specifications of the original, so the caps and clips will fit on any original Skyline pen.
This Wahl-Eversharp Skyline Classic Fountain Pen has a Mandarin Yellow plexi-resin body with rhodium-plated cap and trim that is sure to brighten your day whenever you write with it. This pen features a fine-medium semi-flexible ceramic coated rhodium-plated stainless steel nib. It’s a wonderful nib width that’s not too stiff; it makes a perfect medium semi flex. This is a very handsome writing instrument that has heft yet feels balanced in your hand. The postable cap attaches firmly yet gently to the grip and posts securely. There is a beautiful and sturdy over-the-crown pocket clip. This pen clip is one of the most distinguishing factors of the Wahl-Eversharp Skyline Classic! This fountain pen comes with a piston converter, but can also take standard international ink cartridges. The Skyline Classic arrives in a glossy black lacquer piano box with "WAHL-EVERSHARP" embossed in gold foil on the outside and inside of the lid. The fountain pen itself is sealed inside a protective crystal cylinder case. There is a Wahl-Eversharp instruction booklet and warranty card included.

WAHL-EVERSHARP fountain pens first appeared on some of the finest “golden era” fountain pens in 1929. The Deco Band, the Doric and the Skyline fountain pens of the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s were among the most successful vintage fountain pens and mechanical pencils ever made.
