What are the chances of seeing this with Topre stems? HHKB is getting popular again, with some hype now that Norbauer has made some very slick custom cases for it.

Thanks Elbert. Is it simply the matter of there not being enough market margin for topre as compared to cherry mx?

Probably. Molds are quite expensive, so new tooling for Topre mount represents a high risk. Maybe one day. I typed this on a Norbaforce MK1 encased Realforce 87U, so believe me when I say that there is definitely internal interest in making Topre sets if the opportunity presents itself.

Fingers crossed then, and if and when you do, for the love of lord Jesus Christ our saviour, please make it as elegant and timeless as Susuwatari here; it just defies belief how ugly current topre offerings are. Anyhow, thanks for taking the moment to clarify Elbert.
