1967 Olympia Splendid 33

Serial #1414875

"Wasabi"

Slightly dinged up and stained, but one of the smoothest typers I've encountered - can't seem to out-type it! Types clean as a whistle straight out of the box. Pungent smells subsided after a couple of days. Love it!

Traded this to Fred Durbin during our visit to Hikari Jimuki in Kanda, Tokyo June 22, 2017. Glad she found a happy home!

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
