1935 Torpedo 6 Serial # 208585 1935 Torpedo 6 typewriter, Serial # 208585 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1935 Torpedo 6 typewriter. 2022-08-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1935 Torpedo 6 Serial # 208585 In case of emergency, this typewriter can be used as a bulldozer, heavy ordnance or a barricade. All needs are covered with this ominous chunk of metal, which in addition of the aforementioned functions it should also type quite angrily, as Torpedoes do.

This specimen isn't in great condition, but my uncle wanted to repair it so it has left my pits of deprava- I mean, my home before I managed to get a typeface specimen.

Oh, and in case of extreme emergency the platen can be quickly drawn and wielded as a +2 Short Sword.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
