Not only were the Eversharp Skyline fountain pens revolutionary, so were the pencils. Revolutionary because it was Eversharp that invented the click pencil that we take for granted today! Made of a deep burgundy barrel and 14k gold-filled other half, this vintage pencil is unique in that it doesn't have a metal nose cone! It is in great working order. Remove the tail clicker button to reveal where the 1.1mm lead refills go. It has the name "R.A. Staffenson" engraved on the burgundy barrel, but there isn't a lot of other noticeable wear. No dents, cracks or deep scratches. The eraser is petrified. 13.2cm.
