I love that look, Jil. Been contemplating removing my badge as well.

Nice pics, as always dude

Sorry for the pic quality (phone camera)
Here's my 2 rf87 at work
rf87 10th anniversary, variable silenced
rf87 black, variable

14466-0

As a side note, I invert capslock and left ctrl key. So I ended up with two ctrl on the black rf87 (if you want the hole for the led that is) because ek doesn't provide it when you buy a modifier set

Got a stock HHKB 2 Black sitting right next to it and a 55g 87U AE at work.

Planning on getting a white HHKB and doing some key swaps with the black one, and doing some more cap colors on the white 87u. Will post more pics when I do

Black keys on white case is always a killer combo in my book. Nice on daerid!

Does the 55g mean roughly 55g to depress the key to actuate?

Where did you get a 10th anniversary with that space-bar? I've only seen them with the tiny space-bar and its really been putting me off buying my first Topre.

HaTaa has one, IIRC, as does Webwit. Also, if I recall, HaTaa has a uniform 30g board JIS layout.

He indeed does have both those boards. Sadly the tron wasn't with him to bring to the Toronto meetup. But the JIS 30g was, and I loved it!

I love yellowed one much but don't also mind pale white one at all :)
I don't know pro2 get become yellowed.  Topre may use better plastic for pro2?

hasu, how is the older hhkb holding up? Is there much different on the feel compared to the new one?
10 years. Pro was made in 2003 or 2004,  not sure because it has slip-stop sheet all  over bottom while pro2 production date is 2010/08.
I lubed my pro once with overhaul completely 2 or 3 years ago. I must say Topre switch feel never last forever without occasional maintenance. If you lubed your Topre can keep its feel as if almost new. I can confirm that.
