Description:
In 1940, the newly organized Eversharp Pen Company engaged industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss (1904-1972) to create an all-new pen design. Dreyfuss drew heavily from prior works, especially the streamlined New York Central Railroad locomotive, the Twentieth Century Limited.

The Skyline is a conventional lever filler with a radical streamlined design, a Dreyfuss hallmark. The design may look very top heavy when capped, especially on the smallest models, but becomes very well balanced posted.

There are various iterations of the nib design - this one is the inverted "T" shaped banner that boxes in the logo and the nib slit. This design also makes the Eversharp name the centerpiece of the nib, but adds a sense of movement with the top line splitting and shooting outward to the point of the nib.

Note this is not my pen, I'm taking care of the pensharing logistics on behalf of a friend.

Choice of ink:
By default, the pen will be empty and clean. But I do have a wide range of inks which are all listed on my profile. If you fancy trying something, let me know and I'll either fill the pen or send a sample (depending on ease of packaging etc)
