Wahl-Eversharp - Skyline - Classic - Rollerball Pen
Wahl-Eversharp Skyline Classic Rollerball 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 Rollerball Pen is a modern reconstruction of the original 1940’s classic. The Skyline Classic Rollerball is available in Black with a Palladium cap and Gold-plated trim. This pen writes smoothly using a Schmidt #5888 Ceramic rollerball refill. This is a very handsome writing instrument that has heft, yet feels perfectly balanced in your hand. The cap posts firmly and securely to the grip which highlights the beautiful over-the-crown gold pocket clip. This pen clip is one of the most distinguishing factors of the Wahl-Eversharp Skyline Classic! 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.

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. Wahl-Eversharp employed notable industrial designers Lowey and Dreyfus in the 1940’s. Mr. Dreyfus is responsible for the design of the world famous SKYLINE pens, the design of which is considered to be among the timeless icons of the 20th Century. There’s now a new retro Skyline fountain pen and a new Wahl-Eversharp Decoband pen line constructed of modern materials and incorporating a reliable, modern filling and ink handling system. In order to remain true to the concept and design of the original Skyline model, the modern pens are manufactured to such exact specifications that many of the parts on the modern pens will fit on vintage Skyline pens. The Wahl-Eversharp Company constructs its pens with the finest in materials, workmanship and design bringing forth top quality pens that sell for prices within the reach of most pen fanciers.
