Everest K2 Portable (1956)
This very smart looking portable from the Italian company Everest was manufactured in 1956. Everest typewriters were in direct competition to Olivetti and were eventually taken over by them. Their models are now becoming highly collectable, especially the 'K2' with it's attractive 50's design, good quality metalic paintwork and chrome fittings. The machine has been fully serviced in our workshop and types excellently with a very nice keyboard action, the typestyle is the standard elite typeface (12 characters to the inch). It is supplied with the original carry case and in our opinion it is a very fine collectable typewriter in superb working order.
