I’ve been drooling over Kolibris for a while. It’s not a machine you find in the wild in the United States. I have to thank Ebay for this one. The machine is sturdy and, merely due to its compact size, light to carry. The mechanics are brisk and smooth, and the key-shapes remind me of an Erika 10. The typing is impressively quiet, creating a light, quiet thud on the page. (Imagine an SC Skyriter with a thinner sound.)
Unfortunately, the body took a ding in transit from Germany. The carriage release lever rubbed against the paint. It isn’t too unsightly, but I’ll have to figure out a way to seal it so as to avoid any further chipping.
I’m trying to figure out if the lower and upper case are out of alignment. The difference is minimal, so I think I’ll leave it alone.
Overall, this little fellow is ready to go. It needs no cleaning, and the case is in great shape. The machine isn’t two-toned like some other Kolibris, but I really like the green color. This will be the little bear among the three bears.
