Shipping
We are trying to have a reasonable shipping cost for all our buyers, and will end up eating a bit of the cost to keep it as low as possible. Please keep in mind that this is a heavy product and will still cost a decent amount to ship around the world.

Updates in R5
New sandblasting methods for a finer finish
Better color consistency
New color (red)
Limited edition available


Updates in R4


You will be able to completely remove the spacebar and middle mounting points. This is to ensure compability with hotswap PCBs, and for those that prefer a more flexible typing experience. The inserts will be made in brass.
Other updates:
slight mounting changes
slight USB hole changes

There is a timer on the site!
There might be some adjustments to the time before release.(+- 2 hours)

Keep in mind that Fjell R5 will be open for at least 24 hours.
Klippe T R4 will be open for multiple days.

There is no point in buying more. Itís just to have extra parts available for people.

I have a Fjell from R3, and I love it.  If I had a little more disposable income, I'd gladly by a second.  Hoping for a future R6+ when it lines up with my savings. 

Keep it up Leandren, you make a case I can't stop smiling at every time I see it on my desk

I can't believe I have been waiting for this GB for almost a year and it drops on my birthday! It was meant to be. Will be getting the R1 Grey in less than 30 mins YEEEEE.

PS already sitting on some Holy Pandas and with GMK Mordern Dolch being re-released later in the year, I am going to re-create the Keyboard that Taeha Types built for Dizzy!

Gutted I missed the LE Fjell. Got a white Fjell instead and a black Klippe, and considering adding a R1 Grey Klippe after payday.

Please please please offer rose gold as a regular colour on the next run of Fjell/Klippe/Tind (and a more EU-friendly launch time!)

I love the look and sound of these boards, but I can't for the life of me get used to 60%, so I'm gonna pass. If there's ever a larger size I'm gonna be all over it.

8 hours left to get one! If you want one, get one now.
I will be closing then, due to a large amount of interest(and orders).

Klippe will still be available after that.

I concur. Had the alarm clock set for rose. It went off, I switched it off, mumbled f*** it and turned around continued sleeping. Like the  board a lot, love the rose gold colour scheme but somehow can't be arsed for this kind of time frame anymore.

Shipping will most likely start late July. The orders are sent in random orders, or by priority (special deals).
The entire month of August will be used for quality control and shipments aswell.

Some orders might have to ship in September, due to the large amount, our goal is still to have everything out in August.

Orders from Klippe T (R4) and Fjell (R5) will most likely start shipping late next week.
This will be a long process with production, qc and shipments at the same time.

It's random which order they are sent, and don't expect orders to be out before late August for most of you.

Thanks for your patience.

As your Klippe T R4 / Fjell R5 start to arrive late this week, I would appreciate if you wanted to:
- give me feedback directly on the packaging and product
- take some cool pictures
- share your unboxing to Instagram/twitter/reddit/geekhack/keebtalk and tag me there.

Around 2% of the orders have shipped as of now.
During August, all orders should have been shipped, there is no point asking when your order will ship before September 1st.

Fjells will be going out shortly.
