This pic is almost two years old but this is still my daily driver – except I now have a stepped capslock and I ditched the Menu key for a blank black one. I really wish we make a GMK RGB set someday.

I remember seeing that F-row a long time ago and thought it looked great, it still does!
There is actually numerous GMK RGB sets, Originative had a set with white legends and one with black. Feng over at GH very recently ran a GB for a set with white legends. I am eagerly awaiting to receive it.

Edit: Does it contain a Phantom since you where able to use a stepped Caps Lock?

I also remember that F-row of Grond...
I still need to do something similar to the relegendables on my board. But I don't find any nice symbols and colormatching to the Skidatas is not that easy.

Anyway, here's my daily driver, a Phantom.

I must have missed them! I'll take a look on GH, maybe I can get some leftover.

I wish it did, but it's just a plain Filco. The center-stemmed stepped Caps Lock was made by Signature Plastics, I think I got it from Originative.

I am pretty sure Feng will have a lot for sale when he gets the order, try shoot him a PM to maybe reserve a set.

One day, the Tipro Man is going to flip, and scare his colleages with a tiny HHKB instead!

What caps are the alphas? (Can never get enough ÆØÅ)

They are from a NOS G81-3000 HKNNO which tinnie ran a GB for some time ago. The rest of the caps is from a minicom.

Does every key actually has a function and is it one keyboard or 3 set together? In any case, it is kinda soothing to look at!

The 1st step, Cherry MX Red. The 2nd step, Cherry MX Brown.
The 3rd step, Cherry MX Black. 4, and the 5th step, Cherry MX Blue.
Seemingly it is Cherry which can be easily used as it is unexpected.

Interesting. Why do you use all of these switches? Is it comfortable?

I like the plasters on your mousepad!

It is not the thing which I exchanged and is a commercial item.
Since Cherry has only the load of a coil spring fundamentally, it can use comfortable. A click and tactile of Cherry are weak.

More or less every key has its own function, although not all are used at the moment (I often change things according to the kind of job I'm just doing). The assembly consists of a staggered Tipro unit with a 8x8 matrix unit on either side, and actually functions as a single keyboard, the units being internally connected.

While everybody seems to be eager to have as few keys as possible (apparently irrespective of what is supposed to be done with the keyboard), I am going the exact opposite way: I want as many keys as I have functions often needed, and I want some functions on both sides (cursor keys for example, Escape, Delete, Enter).

But well, my keyboard is a tool used for working, not just a decorative element.
This being said, I find it really beautiful :mrgreen:

They are indeed very nice. I initially bought them because I had no Nordic set, and the US Ansi set confused the hell out of me, so the minicom temporarily solved my problem until I could get a set of Nordic key caps. Now I just put them on occasionally because they look fantastic!

They should be fairly easy to get a hold of, just search Ebay for: ultratec minicom IV. I bought a more or less new unit and got the seller to ship just the key caps. The unit uses MX blacks btw.
(Credit goes to IvanIvanovic for telling me about it in the first place)

A dirty potato pic of my dear HHKB :D
It has also a nice story : I found it on eBay UK, alinh placed the bid from Belgium, Muirium was the proxy for UK ( thanks again :D ), it crossed Europe from west to east for 10 days and the mods are from Sweden :D

Great little board. Here it was with my own sixtys:

It was originally imported from EK, so it's likely your HHKB went the long way around the world, from Japan to North America and then West and East Europe!
