Eversharp Skyline Desk Set, burgundy pen and onyx base

Eversharp Skyline Desk Set burgundy with green and brown onyx base full viewThis 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.
