FAQ

What is this case?
It is a tray mount case for 60 percent mechanical keyboards that follow the standarized Poker mounting. It has a weight of 2kg, or approx. 4.4 lbs.

Why $300 for a tray mount case?
This cost as much, or more to produce than most other 60% cases, tray mount or top mount. The beveled edges takes time to get right, the weight design is complex and the amount of material in this case is quite unique.

How does it sound?
Typing test by Taeha Types (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeqnEJpPZVY)

When does it ship?
2 months after GB end

How many units will be available?
About 100 units.

How long will the GB stay open for?
Depending on how fast things sell, usually a week or two.

Yes, it should fit fine.

Other PCBs that'll work:

Looks great! Those removable mounts are really cool, even just from the standpoint that if you accidentally strip one of them they can just be swapped out without trying to retap.

It's exactly the same.

So its not actually clear? Clear ano would show off all the imperfections and markings from the manu process instead of covering them like a silver ano would.

It's probably going to make quite a difference between it actually being clear or actually being silver.

no offense, but that doesn't clarify what it is...

Is it a clear or a silver anodizing? Is it going to cover the imperfections or is it going to show them off? Clear is not the same as a silver.

Ok thank you, are you able to give any details about what separates the classic and the pro? I'm definitely going to be grabbing one, but I'd be hesitant to buy the classic in case the pro is more what I want..

Yes there are major differences, I'll write a proper explanation for you tonight! Major difference is top mount vs tray mount.

Clear is silver. Silver is clear.

Cases are sandblasted and cleaned before anodizing, and that's when tool marks are removed.

The Fjell in that popular Taeha video with GMK Oblivion...that's the black color, not grey, correct?

I hope black is available as an option regardless, can't really beat it compatibility wise. It works with nearly everything.

Originally I was going to wait for the Fjell Pro but it doesn't sound like that's coming out any time soon, so will definitely pick up a Classic. Excited.

I believe it was grey R1. But grey R1 is different from R2 or R3 i believe

Thanks, I probably should of read the video description as it says it right there.

My #1 choice is black but if for whatever reason it's not going to be an option, a nice dark grey would be a good substitute.

Some people have asked me if the R2, and later weight(top) is less difficult to manufacture than the R1 weight(bottom), and if it was done as a cost measure.

(https://i.imgur.com/eW4Xn47.png)


Not only is it really kind of similar, it has more material and more difficult machining.

Answer is, it is not cheaper to manufacture, it was done because I think it looks better and opens for more details on the weight.

Question, If I wanted to use the DZ60 PCB in the Fjell with this layout that has arrow keys:

(https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1473/3902/files/3_02_a76e21b6-bf9d-47c4-84ce-60bfde9c9a71.jpg)

Does that mean I need to purchase a DZ60 specific plate? In other words, will the plate that Mekanisk sells be incompatible with this layout?

Not sure if will be compatible, but the plate of your image and the one that comes with the fjell looks pretty similar.
Also there is an option to not buy the fjell plate (reduces the price in 10$)

Really cool idea to have the removable standoffs.  Good for hotswap but also good for people who want to experiment with other materials.  I have some anti-vibration standoffs (they sell them in a few form factors (m2 and m3) for drones) that I would like to try out in the case.  They have brass m2 holes but the standoffs are a medium density rubber.  Might make for a nice typing experience.   Would be cool if they were all removable, but I can see that is probably impractical

Brass works better than titanium. It's a bit more expensive for parts line these, however they have the best thread integrity.

Any idea how long after group buy these should start shipping? Looks like the Kippes may go out about a month after? Seems very fast!

Supposedly, 2 months.

2 months for the Fjell Classic

We were lucky with the Klippe 2019, so it might ship before the estimated date.

Would any of you be interested in an electrophoretic coated (white) Fjell for a significant price increase?
The process is more expensive because of logistics and the tech itself, and I am wondering if it is worth it or not for you.

I'm thinking poll voting is restricted to users with a deeper post history and/or those who've been registered for a certain period of time? I can't vote either but I don't mind since Dark Grey is confirmed as an option.

I'd consider purchasing that white as well but the fact that it would come at a steep price increase -- in addition to the already premium price tag/shipping, means I'm most likely gonna end up going for Grey in the end.

Depends on the markup for an e-white case honestly. I know shipping's going to be fairly expensive so I'll probably go for a dark grey case to save some monies. But an e-white fjell is definitely tempting.

The last time, shipping was nearly $70. Express shipping of heavy item is expensive. I will look into cheaper options. $40 would be a steal.

PayPal has caused me so much issues in the past, especially because I am in Norway and don't have the same rules as you have in the US.

It's all ok, until PayPal locks down the entire GB fund, for me not to be able to access it.

I might reconsider it in the future, however not now.

PayPal can lock up a seller's account at any given moment and freeze all the money in it that isn't fair to expect LeandreN to take that risk. This is the fourth round he's proven pretty trustworthy at this point.

There is no timeline. I am quite busy overseeing the Klippe GB. Just saw the Klippe Limited Edition in Brass, it's looking good. I have more QC to do, there before I start the Fjell GB, but it looks like the Klippe will be the smoothest GB so far.

What often happens (in the UK) is shipments get impounded, you can only release them by paying a tax fee plus a "handling" fee - sometimes more than the tax itself!
I know there are some shipping options that allow you to pay tax up front (FedEx?) thus avoiding this nonsense rip-off fee.
Just thinking out loud.... At some point it becomes plausible to just say I'll fly over and pick the cases up from Norway myself \o/

Here's the same story, it's pretty annoying, since the more days the package stays at the post office, the more expensive the taxes get, unless it comes from China, you pay whatever the shipping you chose cost, and when the package arrives to the post office, you pay a fee of 750 colones (around 1 US dollar and 30 cents) and that's it, although you only have one week to pick it up or the post office will return it.

Late 2019 maybe. It's going to be amazing, so it requires a lot of work.

Hmm...not sure if I should wait on the chance that the Fjell Pro will be released this year, or pull the trigger on the Classic.

Also, that new Wilba designed PCB up on the website looks nice.

It looks like there will be a Wilba PCB available with the Fjell.  Seems like it will only be like 65 for the PCB. Could have probably just opted in for that vs the zeal60, even though it is a super nice PCB.

I can’t wait for more details on the Wilba PCB. Looks like it has relief cut outs for extra flex.

Yeah I could have, I've just heard such good things about the Zeal and the RGB is implemented so damn nicely.

Would love a Wilba designed PCB solely for the quality & aesthetics, but ultimately I'm going to have to opt for a DZ60 because I need a concrete layer of navigation keys. Really wish this layout would become more standardized, IMO it's the best 60% layout:

As far as I know, the DZ60 is the only 60% PCB that supports this layout. I've never seen another 60% PCB that supports the standard 4x1U arrow cluster but then again, my research is relatively limited.

Some cards gets declined until they contacted their bank.

It's because of a large transaction outside the US, it seems. Fraud protection.

Ooh found this notification in my inbox today just as the keyboard I was test-driving was failing. Very intrigued!! Lots of questions:

- This would be my first build. Any thoughts on whether it's a good or bad idea to "learn" on the Fjell?

- Would I only need to get switches and caps in addition to the keyboard kit?

- Do you also have a real-world image of the Ultramarine Blue? Is it more turquoise or blue, like this Klippe? https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=92848.msg2621825#msg2621825

Those ultramarines have nothing to do with each other. It's just bad color naming from my side. It will be closer to the render.

You need switches, keycaps and stabilisers.

I think you can learn on a fjell its a tray mount, so pretty standard to build.

Hey Leandren !

I've just seen the 1st color sample for the Ultramarine Fjell, and I'm a bit concerned. I understand the color is not the final one, but the sample looks like far away from Pantone 3035C, which was supposed to be the target.

Will half a shade darker enough to bring more green in the next sample ?

It'll be as similar to Pantone 3035C as anodizing allows.

I received mine yesterday. A black Fjell.

I immediately noticed that the quality of its anodization was a step below the quality of my Klippe+ from last year. My gray Klippe+ is pretty much perfect. This Fjell, though... has been a bit of a let down. I found a couple tiny little defects in the Fjell's anodization. Granted, it's nothing to write home about, but my Klippe+ had literally no defects whatsoever. Have you switched factories, LeandreN?

I will still keep it, but I just thought about voicing my first impressions here, in case anybody else feels the same way.

Same factories, different finish. Most people have  told me it has improved, but I do understand if it's not for everyone. Thank you for your feedback!


Edit: if there are actual flaws, that should be taken with support@mekanisk.co, as that's obviously not meant to be there.

Will a tracking number be provided when our order ships? I ask because I had a recent problem with a delivery from my local DHL facility so I'd like to make sure the shipment goes smoothly.

You will get tracking a little after it's shipped. In the beginning, we'll be a little slow with sending out the tracking numbers.

Just received mine today and noticed the same thing on my R1 grey Fjell. A handful of cosmetic defects on the interior. Exterior seems to be mostly good. Just to compare, where are your Fjell's marks located?

I think it came out great.

Great job!

Yeah, those are anodizing spots, should not be visible during use

Most group buys ship right after the estimates sometimes a long time after the estimated times. It's kind of unusual for things to be sent before the estimates. Thank you.

Ive received mine, but I havent ordered a PCB. The orders without PCB were shipped out first iirc. I guess most of the orders are not shipped yet ;)

I didn't order a PCB and I haven't gotten mine or a shipping notification, so not all without PCB were shipped. Either way, stoked for when it arrives. Got my Zeal 60, holy pandas and modern dolch ready to go!

Hello!

I know a lot of you have received your boards and have been active posting on Instagram, reddit and Discord, I would love some more pictures and feedback!
Every Fjell R4 will be out within the end of this week, which I personally am satisfied with considering a September-October estimated shipping dates.


Thank you!
