Using the Mekanisk Klippe T as an idea, this keyboard is completely redesigned. Klippe S is a two part design, and is designed to make keyboard building easy, offering a good typing experience at an okay price point.

WT60-D High quality, VIA compatible, printed circuit board designed by Wilba
High quality packaging for storage, initial and future freight(I have made the packaging good so you can reuse it, so please do not throw it away)
4x stainless steel screws for the plate mounting, 6x stainless steel screws for the case mounting, rubber bumpons
High density precision cut EVA foam infill for the case (+$15)

Isolation layer The plate of your choice, is screwed into a carbon fiber piece that is resting on the aluminium base. This eliminates the chance that the metal against metal produce pinging sounds. The Klippe S will still feature a firm typing experience.
Compability The Klippe S, has support for most soldered 60% PCBs on the market, while also offering the WT60-D from Mekanisk & wilba.tech as an option and included in the base price. This makes the case great for people that don't want to be locked to one single PCB.
While this is the PCB that the case is moulded after, there are other PCBs that fit as well, due to the design desicions that make the USB I/O larger for compability for 60% PCBs that slightly differ from the standard. We are not responsible for incompatbility with PCBs not bought from Mekanisk.
Clean aesthetics Klippe S features a medium thick frame, offering the benefits of a smaller footprint, while maintaining the good acoustics for the installed keyboard switches. The case features small chamfers, and fillets to round the design slightly, drawing inspiration from Fjell and, of course, the Klippe.
