The Patria variants are worth starting a sub-collection of their own. They're slightly strange machines; despite lacking the mechanical tightness you would associate with a really good portable, they are none-the-less very satisfying to use. Something else I've noted about them, they make a distinctive clack, which may sound good, but also exempts them from late-night use.
