1. Are Wahl-Eversharp Pens made of high quality materials and workmanship?

Yes. The pens are made in Switzerland, France, Italy, and the USA using the finest grade of materials available. The molds and tooling are Swiss, and the engineering that went into them is the best available today producing the tightest fit of parts and pieces. Our nibs are interchangeable. It will be possible to replace the older nibs with the newer options as they come on line.

Fountain Pen
Dual Filling Methods

  • Your Skyline fountain pen can be filled using the pump/converter system provided or by using an international size Long cartridge. (Short cartridges cannot be used)

Piston Converter Filling

  • Unscrew tail of pen body (Resin body pens) or unscrew the black section of the pen from the body (Metal Pens) to expose the piston filler/converter.
  • Turn the converter piston knob counter-clockwise until you feel resistance.
  • Submerge entire nib of the pen into the ink and turn converter knob clockwise to its resistance point.
  • Turn knob counterclockwise 1/4 turn.
  • Remove nib from ink and wipe nib clean.
  • Screw end piece back on the pen. It is now ready for use.

Cartridge Filling

  • Unscrew tail of pen body (Resin body pens) or unscrew the black section of the pen from the body (Metal Pens) to expose the piston filler/converter or old cartridge.
  • If the converter is full) empty the ink by turning the knob counter-clockwise, forcing the ink from the reservoir. You may then remove the piston converter from the pen by pulling straight back on the Piston converter knob or cartridge tail.
  • Insert a new long cartridge into the barrel of the pen and press firmly until seated. (Do not use a short cartridge)
    The pen is ready for use.

Rollerball Filling

  • Unscrew tail of pen body (Resin body pens) or unscrew the black section of the pen from the front of pen body (Metal Pens) to expose the Roller Ball refill.
  • Remove the empty refill from the pen.  Be careful not to remove the small spring inside the pen nose cone.
  • Insert the new roller ball refill into nose cone.
  • Replace the pen tail or front section.
    The pen is ready for use.

6. Do I have to be limited to Proprietary ink cartridges with Wahl-Eversharp Pens?

Wahl-Eversharp pens use universal (standard long Waterman style) cartridges, available from many ink suppliers today.

7. My pet peeve is pens that don't post or don't post properly. How well do caps post on Wahl-Eversharp pen?

Wahl-Eversharp pens post neatly and securely. There is nothing in the way to obstruct posting the cap securely, and our proprietary cap liners cushion the cap on the barrel when posted.

8. I am sick of pens that are astronomically priced and highly limited in production.

Right you are. That’s why we decided to make the best pens available today in the “mid-priced range.” If you browse through our many pen choices, you should be able to find one that is affordable and still know the materials and workmanship is top notch.

9. Today, it seems whenever I want to order a pen that I have my heart set on. I come to find out it is not available. Will Wahl-Eversharp pens be stocked in sufficient quantity to ensure I can get what I want in a reasonable amount of time?

We have invested in significant anticipatory production to have adequate supply at the ready. Naturally, this requires a good deal of planning and some guess work about the popularity of a given model, color, design, etc. If a given pen becomes very popular, even that supply may prove inadequate to satisfy demand, but back-orders should be no more than 30 days. We have a good, live inventory system that tells us exactly what is in stock at any time and re-stock triggers that should help us keep pace with demand. Because we control our own production, and logistics, we can turn out more of the model needed and/or customize pens for customers.

10. How do I care for my Wahl-Eversharp pen?

Fountain Pen Cleaning

  • The nib of the pen and the converter must be thoroughly cleaned before changing ink color.
  • Follow the instructions above to empty the converter.
  • Refill and expel the converter several times with cold water. (Never use warm or hot water or any chemicals.)
  • Wipe thoroughly.
  • Replace the pen tail or front section.
  • The pen is ready for use.

Periodic Service: It is a good practice to empty the pen of ink and flush the filling system with cool water once a month.
Preparation for storage: If you will not be using your pen for an extended period, empty the pen of ink by turning the converter knob counter-clockwise to expel the remaining ink. Flush the pen filling and expelling with cool water. Repeat until the expelled water is almost clear. For cartridges, remove the cartridge and run cool clean water through the pen.
