Wahl-Eversharp vintage Skyline.
One with customized barrel by artisan Paul Rossi
Special Nibs.
CLICK FOR LARGER PIC

Skylines are excellent workhorse pens: sturdy, reliable, found sometimes with flexible points.  Celluloid caps, wide cap-bands and gold-filled caps are up-market findings.  Some monster nibs. High quality pens with flex nibs that give those bland Waterman 52s more than a run for the money.

Pen at left is an original Skyline subsequently customized by the renowned pen artisan Paul Rossi. He etched the barrel to give a crocodile finish, similar to what is found on wristwatch straps.

Extra fine cosmetic condition with clean gold-filled trim and just the occasional light mark on plastic. Flex nib, ranging from fine to broad. Nib is a bit scratchy when pushing point toward 2 o'clock position.

Pen 3356:  Wahl-Eversharp Symphony $120 
Model 701. Blue.

Overall Grade: Exc-Nearmint
Metal: Exc Color:  NM CLICK FOR LARGER PIC
Nib condition: Exc
Threads: Perfect clarity: Superb
Point: Fine Semi Flex Imprint: NA Size: 5 1/2" 14cm
PRICE: $120
COMMENTS: Symphony replaced the popular Wahl Skyline, and the barrel shape channels that earlier pen. The two tone metal cap enhances the eye appeal of this streamlined pen.   A pen of good quality, Symphony is somewhat underappreciated in the pendom community today. Clean pen. Nice nib.

Pen 3202 JB:  WAHL-EVERSHARP 1927-9 or so $265
 Full-Girth ring-top (not the "ladies" model). Coral Celluloid
Semi-Flex--Flex nib. (Fine-to-Broad Line)

Overall Grade: Excellent
Metal: Exc Color: Extra-fine CLICK FOR LARGER PIC
Nib condition: Exc
Threads:  Exc clarity: Exc
Point: Semi+ Flex (fine-broad) Imprint: Exc Size: 5 1/8" 12.8 cm
PRICE: $265
COMMENTSWell, I'm no Wahlnut, but  having handled many Wahls and many in Coral, this model is a bit uncommon I suspect. It is not the short slender "Ladies" model with #2-size nib usually found in ringtop, but is the full size (full girth) standard pen usually found as military clip, with #4-size nib.  I don't see many ringtops in this size, though it would not surprise me if this is a regularly cataloged model (i really must pull the catalogs). Clean trim. Sharp imprint (at top of cap), nice color, not quite perfect but excellent and better than most. Silky Wahl Signature (semi-flex) nib that is not wet-noodle but does flex from about fine-medium (would be uber-flex for a modern pen, but is not like, say, a noodle flex Waterman #2 nib). Great pen. Nice writer.

Pen 2390 Wahl Eversharp CHASED RED HARD RUBBER Ringtop $225
mid-late 1920's. Superb Condition (see extra pic)

Overall Grade:  NM
Metal: Exc Color:  Perfect CLICK FOR LARGER PIC
Nib condition: Exc
Threads:  perfect clarity: NA
Point:   Fine. Firm Imprint:  Exc Size:4 1/2" 11.5cm
PRICE: $225 
COMMENTS:  Entry level pen to the world of Wahl RCHR. Often found cracked, this one lacks any cracks. Often found worn, this one has very sharp chasing. Often found brassed... well, you get the idea. The diffused light used for the photo obscures the chasing. Later (next day or three) will take a top-lit oblique shot to really show the thing off... assuming it has not been claimed by then :)

Pen 2370M Wahl Eversharp Symphony. Mid 1940's   $135

Nib condition: Mint
Threads: perfect clarity:    NA
Point:   Fine Firm. Imprint:  N/A Size: 5 5/16" 14.2cm

COMMENTS:    Symphony replaced the vaunted Wahl Skyline, and the barrel shape channels that earlier pen. The two tone metal cap enhances the eye appeal of this streamlined pen.  This one is, i believe, third generation.  A pen of good quality, Symphony is somewhat underappreciated in the pendom community today.  The "701" was the intermediate model regarding price point and trim level. This one is mint stickered, freshly resaced and ready to go.

Pen 2372M  Wahl Eversharp Symphony Set. Mid 1940's    $155

COMMENTS:  Symphony replaced the vaunted Wahl Skyline, and the barrel shape channels that earlier pen.  This one is, i believe, third generation.  A pen of good quality, Symphony is somewhat underappreciated in the pendom community today.  The "707", despite the heftier model number, was entry level for the series.  This one is, i believe, third generation.The fine nib has real flex, though not "wet noodle". The  pen is mint stickered, freshly resaced, and ready to go. It is accompanied by mint pencil 1707.  I've foiund green and blue to crop up less often than Burgundy and Black, amongst Symphonies.

Pen 1987 Wahl-Eversharp Symphony   $110

Point:  XF-F Imprint:  NA Size: 5 1/2"
PRICE: $110 
COMMENTS:  Symphony succeeed Skyline during the 1940's. Attractive pens, they are a bit undappreciate by today's collector. Presumably targeting the Parker "51", the Symphony never touched that pens popularity. Still, they are nicely styled pens of good quality. This one has original barrel sticker but has met ink, so is not mint.
