After much waiting you can now order your ultra compact, modern design F77! You can also order an ultra compact case version of the F62 Kishsaver (see the other store item). Printed or blank keys, standard color or all black – your choice. Full disclosure, the design and colors are subject to change, but the innards will be exactly the same as the original cases, except the bottom inner assembly will be less wide to fit inside the smaller case. The colors and finish shown in the rendering are not accurate.
You can get one with a number pad and all F77 and F62 keyboards have function keys! They are the function layer of the top row of keys. You can have the keys printed with F1, etc. on them or leave the printing normal (for the F1 printing please order the extra set of 12 F1, etc. keys in the store item).
F77 compact case expected dimensions: 38 x 14.5 x 2.5 cm (15 x 5.7 x 0.8 in.)
F77 original case approximate dimensions: 42 x 18 x 3 cm (16.5 x 7.1 x 1.2 in.)
Order this product to receive the ultra compact case version of the F77. This one will have a hard anodized aluminum case and the USB cable will be removable from the back without requiring you to open up the case.
However please note that this ultra compact version of the case is secondary priority for me compared to getting out the original style case keyboards to everyone who ordered one. So please expect to get yours with the final round orders, but possibly with the early round orders. Lead time is at least several months.
Black key sets will include split right shift key – please disregard the note in the product dropdown menu.
Also a note that you do not receive the original-style styrofoam packaging with any compact keyboard – the keyboards will be securely packed another way.
A Brand New F77 Model F Kishsaver Keyboard. The packing slip is an exception and will likely be printed using a dot matrix printer on new old stock dot matrix printer paper 🙂
For HHKB/split right shift and split backspace printed layouts, custom printed keys will be included: 1.5U size Delete key, 1U | \ key, 1.5U Caps Lock, 1.75U Left Ctrl, 1.75U right shift, and 1U Fn. For the HHKB set with the non-split backspace, you will not receive the 1U | \ key and the | \-sized backspace key.
The cork-rubber feet from the photos are included free with every order! They ship unattached to the keyboard so you can pick which feet you want and where you want to install them.
If you are using your own keys, you’ll need stabilizer inserts (not included unless you buy a key set). You can order 4 stabilizer inserts by adding 4 units of the “Stabilizer insert” item to your cart.
Please note that you are not buying from inventory. All new Model F items will be built to order at the factory.
