love to see a new project from foostan, and for a premium case for corne-esque layout. Curious why not split though? Save on production cost?

The main reason is that I wanted to challenge myself a bit differently than Corne. Yes, there was also the issue of cost.

There is not it on the prototype now, but I'll update a PCB.

Yes, modifier keys are MT3 Susuwatari and alpha keys are MT3 Black on White.

I didn't adopt this one simply because it wasn't to my liking.

You want engravings on the top of the body, right?

Welcome Foostan, I'm definitely in on this. Tenting would be very good for ergonomics, especially for your wrists, and it will look good too: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=107031.0

Yup, thatís exactly what I was thinking. Similar to Gokís tented Alice, the Type K.

Your answer is good enough for me, itís your board, and your prerogative to build what you like.

Thanks for answering! Like I said, Iím interested anyway.
