May I ask why there is no option for PayPal as Payment? I got no Credit Cards and therefore have to skip the Fjell  :(
Guess, I could find the answer somewhere, so sorry in advance for asking here!
PayPal has caused me so much trouble in the past, therefore I don't offer it now.

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.

Thanks!! I think I'll take a shot on the Fjell once it arrives in the fall.

Great call on stabilizers. Any recommendations for where to buy?

Good cheaper ones are GMK Screw In Stabilziers, the best are Zeal Stabilizers. Just google and you will find them.


Thank you!

Hey @LeandreN,

Any chance of sharing the color distribution amongst all the orders? Like you did in the last round through a pie chart. :)

Any chances in future rounds of the Klippe you'd go for removable center mounts as with this round of the Fjell?

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.

[GB] Fjell Classic Round 4
« Reply #233 on: Fri, 06 September 2019, 08:19:03 »
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.

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?

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 ;)
