This was my first Eversharp Skyline desk set. I just really like the elegant burgundy color and the understated design. The green and brown onyx base gives the set a more casual feel than some others.
When I got this set, the base was badly chipped around the top edge, very unsightly. I used a file, some 400 wet sandpaper, 0000 steel wool, and ever finer abrasives until I had obliterated the chips and achieved a more rounded form with at least some moderate shine. I like the look.
This pen bears the Wahl-Eversharp double check mark gold seal and a second generation Skyline “banner” nib.
