Elegant, handsome, refined and distinctive. And that’s just in the looks department…

I have a history with the Remington Noiseless 8, dating back to when I first contemplated buying a manual typewriter on which to teach myself proper typing technique. I now own three of these fine writing machines and consider them worthy contenders for the title of Ultimate Typing Machine (pre-War division). It’s time I reviewed one for this blog, so here we go.

(NOTE: This machine types beautifully. Any imperfections you see in the typecast are a result of operator error.)
