So it will be impossibel to get in Norway? Maybe I have to take the 4 hour drive to Tormek factory.

Since Norway borders Sweden, I would think you would be able to purchase one before I can in the US, an ocean away.
I suggest that you email support (support@tormek.se)  and alert them to your interest.

I received this email from Håkan Persson, Tormek CEO, this morning:

Hi Ken,
We have decided that the upgraded US-400 will be named US-430. It will be available in August or September through all Tormek dealers.
Thanks for your support. Feel free to communicate if you like.
Best Regards Hakan

"Van" appears to be the man of the hour. I am pretty sure that others have asked for this fixture but his was the final straw in having it come to fruition, or so it seems. Don't know if I will buy one as my cleaving need is pretty nonexistent but I do have a couple of long knives.

Thanks Van and Ken for getting tormek to start production of the new US-430. Is there a way to “pre-order” one? I would hate to miss the boat on it if it’s a limited time production!

Antz,

The correct designation for the redesigned US-400 is the US-430. (US meaning Universal Support).
I don't know about pre ordering.
It should be available through any Tormek dealer, including your local dealer in Honolulu.
From personal correspondence, I know that Advanced Machinery in Delaware (advmachinery.com) will be very involved with selling it. Depending on comparative shipping costs and the importance of early delivery, I would recommend either your local dealer or contacting Wolfgang Derke at Advanced.

If you opt for Advanced Machinery, they are the primary North American Tormek parts source. If you are planning to order any Tormek parts, I would suggest putting everything in one order to save on shipping.

I wonder if these are going to go out to all the major distributors, in all the countries Tormek distributes in?
To date, I've only been able to see reference to it on the Advanced web site.

At this point, according to the Advanced ad, it's a preorder. I suggest you contact your local dealer. The Tormek accessory designation is US-430.
