“To the wild vikings renowned Swedish steel was vital to fighting. To modern man it is equally vital for writing. Then it secured short life for the vikings! Now it ensures the long life of the many fine features of the Halda Star.

The “Record Carriage” will give you record speed and beautiful spacing even from jerky typing. With the “Multimatic Tabulator” you’ll have to press only one key for five tab-stops to give uniform style to your letters. The one-motion, fast and certain “Star Margin” setting, the noise-absorbing and dust-protecting bottom plate, the nail-kind keys – see and try all these lasting Halda Star features!”
