PROJECT PEN: Better for parts and projects than daily use.

Our latest Eversharp Skyline looks as if it has been on more than its fair share of bumpy flights, but it is still in need of a good home. The 1/10th 14k gold-filled cap is still looking pretty sharp with only some light wear and no dents. The dome seems tight enough. Yet, the cap and barrel don't close well or tightly. The black barrel of the pen shows heavy wear in places. No cracks, but there is plenty of scratching and marring to the finish. It even bends a little like a banana. The 14k gold nib is discolored in places by a very stubborn film. The nib can be trained to be flexible, but it currently is NOT flexible. It writes a smooth medium line, but sometimes it needs a little encouragement by way of gentle pressure to keep the ink flowing. We installed a new ink sac, but we don't recommend this pen as a daily writer as it is. 13.4cm capped.
