I'm interested in the white as well depending on the premium. How does electrophoretic coating hold up with daily use?

That white render made me go WOW. It looks beautiful! But like everyone else said, it depends on how much more it'll cost. Have you looked into cheaper shipping options? I wanted a Klippe but the $40 shipping was a no-go.

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.

Any chance we could choose the shipping speeds? Not speaking for everyone in the sub, but I'd be fine with paying less for non-expedited shipping and waiting longer.

Unfortunate that PayPal won't be an option.

Also willing to do the cheapest possible, reliable shipping option, regardless of lead time.

Whatís the benefit of PayPal? LeandreN is quite a reliable person. (I say this having purchased from him in the past).

Yep.

And I rarely use it but I was planning on using PayPal Credit specifically for the Fjell, as it allows 6-months interest-free financing for purchases over $99 :-X
June/July is going to weigh heavy on my pockets with GMK Oblivion, MT3 Serika, Rama dropping Kuro extras, etc...

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.

I have had that happen to me before as a seller on Paypal it's a pain in the ass.

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.

Nice, congrats on the success of the Klippe! Will be following the Fjell closely.

Not from EU. Some cases will ship from China directly, while some may be shipped from Norway.

Both are outside EU.

VAT isn't something I could help with unless I moved with my business to something like Sweden. I have decided to pay the taxes for all Norwegian customers however I can't do that for the entire EU.

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/

Yup and I would have to pay an extra 1/3 of the price that I pay for the case in taxes and handling fee... :(

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.

So...if I understood properly...
Fjell Pro will have blockers for an HHKB layout on top of other features ??!! Gosh... <3

Even if you don't know the release date of it, do you think that you will get around the same numbers of cases (aka 100) for the pro version ? :)
