Wahl-Eversharp Skyline pens brought brilliant design to the vintage pens of the 1940s. Really hard to find are these large "executive" size Eversharp Skyline pens. We have fully restored this one with a new ink sac and breather tube. The breather tubes were included with the intention of making the pen better suited to air travel and the pressure changes involved. It really didn't do much to keep the pens from making a mess with changes in altitude, but it was a clever idea and gimmick that made the aerodynamic pens popular with WWII pilots. This pen has seen plenty of action. There are no cracks, but you'll see ample wear in little scratches, scars and other marks on the green striped cap and forest green barrel. There's some brassing on the lever. The original 14k gold nib writes wet, smooth medium line. 14.3cm capped.
