Wahl-Eversharp Skyliner 50 Fountain Pen - Menthol Green with Palladium Cap

Many authorities consider the design of the SKYLINE Pen to be among the timeless icons of the 20th Century. Collectors and writers still seek out the surviving examples of this pen today, 66 years after production ceased. In order to remain true to the concept and design of the original Skyline model, the modern pens are manufactured to such exact specifications that many of the parts on the modern pens will fit on vintage Skyline pens.

Good Writing; Odd Packaging November 28, 2014
Reviewer: Waski_the_Squirrel from North Dakota  
This is a nice looking pen with a color I really like. The nib has some flex. Overall, I like the pen.

But, I have a few criticisms. First. It comes with a bizarre amount of packaging: an enormous box, a special plastic tube, and a strange little car. How about saving me some money and giving me a nice pen in a simple package?

The second criticism is the filling. I prefer a piston filler, but can live with a converter. I wouldn't mind a converter except for the odd way that the pen tries to make it look like a piston filler with a blind cap over the top of the converter. I can't see the ink level without pulling the converter out. And this is why it bothers me.

Finally, not a criticism, but worth noting: the metal cap is quite subject to fingerprint smudges.

However, it really is a nice pen. The packaging is really its worst feature.
