Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $125.00
Have you ever seen a 1930s' or '40s' steam engine that looks like this pen? There's a good reason. The Wahl-Eversharp Skyline was designed by the same guy! This fully restored vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. It has a burgundy barrel and top dome over its gold-filled cap. However, you might notice that the section is black. We suspect it is a bit of a marriage. The cap isn't perfect, but it still looks pretty good. There are only a couple little marks on it. We were surprised when we dip-tested the 14k gold nib. It looks like a medium point, but it writes a wet, broad line with a little feedback. 13.3cm capped.
