I realise this is a bit off topic but is there any chance you guys would be stocking any of the leopold topre boards or HHKBs in the future? I'm sure it's probably unlikely, thanks.

When will you have the Realforce SE18T0 87U with the ANSI layout back in stock?

Never say never... but there are some good reasons why we don't at the moment. For example, the HHKB isn't CE-approved, so it's illegal to sell in Europe. They are unique and we would like to sell them, but this is a significant barrier. Leopold's Topre boards are quite similar to what we have already; if we can only stock one line we prefer Realforce.

Wow I had no idea that was the case with the HHKB, I guess there may be a very small plus side for brexit then haha =P. I completely understand and that's fair enough, just a shame that the ones I am interested in are the fc980c and the fc660c which unfortunately don't really have Topre equivalents. Thanks for the response anyway.

No worries. Of course, if this changes we'll be the first to let you know! :)

Candykeys has started to sell the HHKB in the EU and has apparently found a distributor with the correct certification. Any chance you guys would be interested in picking some up?

If they truly do have the correct certification, we may look into it - but no promises :) Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

I feel like I already know the answer to this, but how likely would it be for our forgotten European brethren to get a 55g Topre Realforce keyboard? More specifically, a white (or beige) Topre Realforce 88U 55g (non-variable) with ISO-DE layout.

Not getting my hopes up, but it doesn't hurt to ask! Thank you  :thumb:
