Reading List – Wahl-Eversharp Skyline

The Skyline was introduced by Wahl-Eversharp in 1941. One of the most popular fountain pens of the 1940’s, production of the pen ceased in 1949. The list below is a work-in-progress. If you know of other informational Skyline resources, please list in the comment section. I’d appreciate the contribution!

Other Resources

Another reason to be a PCA member: Available from the PCA is an Eversharp Service Manual circa 1947. Great detail about the parts and assembly of Skylines, including the desk pen, Presentation, and Streamliner Skylines. Other pens included are the Fifth Avenue fountain pen, and the Eversharp CA (ballpoint). Corresponding Skyline, Fifth Avenue and CA repeater pencils are also covered.

The Summer 2008 issue of The Pennant has a beautiful Skyline on its cover (but no article).

The Fountain Pen Network has a valuable Wahl-Eversharp forum.
