Update for plates:
universal brass plate will coming soon. thickness will be 1.5mm :)


Type A plate:

Type B plate:

Type C plate:


Update for Everest White Craft:
The Everest White we are offering is actually NOT the same as traditional MAO surface finishing method used. In fact, this so called Everest finish we are offering is actually a brand new technique researched. What it improved is the resistance it has towards scratches and dust/fingerprints. And much to our satisfaction it also feels much more premium to the touch and even shines better!

All you have to do is waiting for it! 😉

Is there any option not to use SF Express? Their local partner in my country is bad. They charge us with "handling fee" that is more expensive than the shipping cost, e.g. we had to pay $65 for TGR-910

Interested on the Everest White, is there any chance to have other shipping options other than SF Express?
My friend had a quite bad experience with them after reaching out local dispatcher.

I'm in Indonesia. The shipping cost (from Malaysia) was $40, the item was declared as $40, and there was no fee from the Customs as well.

I don't know how it was in the US. Maybe in other country they have different "policy" depending on the local partner

Actually, the issue regarding its similarity to Fjell has been extensively discussed in the IC post. ALF has provided evidence and clarified it is his original design.

Actually, this design predates the Fjell.

Also, you could buy 4 of these for the price of one Fjell.

It also has a ton more color choices.

My information is that ALF will focus on the international market for this line of products. Unlikely there will be another domestic private GB given the alpha test run are done and quality has surpassed expectations.

Just think placing order through TB can reduce the international shipping, if it's possible.
