Klippe has the same fitment as the applauded Fjell case. It provides a unique, and fantastic typing experience. Listening to customer feedback is the best, and most effective way to improve a product. Thank you for all your feedback, here are some of the updates from the last revisions:
Instead of our logo, we now use our signature nature details.
New USB hole
Made a bit smaller. Will still fit all 60% PCBs with normal USB placement. (blue parts are where it is made smaller). If you use an uncommon PCB, I would check that there are no interference.
The anodizing and sandblasting will be even finer than before. New tooling will reduce and remove anodizing hook marks. Better sandblasting technique will provide a better surface to anodize.
Screw holes will be tapped after anodizing to make sure there are no residue material, and make sure you can get the longest lasting, most effective screw posts as possible.
The case now cost only $155, before $179(in reality more, since $179 is a group buy price). This is achieved by ramping up production quantity, and losing a bit of profit margin. Pre order price is $120.
Regarding the shipping & handling cost:
The case itself does have a good amount of weight, combined with a larger package(custom foam and dual cardboard), these cost a bit to ship with an insured 1-3 days express world wide. Hopefully that is understandable.
