I have made some changes from the proto I have vs the final production board, the changes made are purely aesthetic (flower size adjustment). I will also be sending my v2 prototypes to these streamers:

Here is a typing test of the v1 proto for those that are interested:

Here are some photos of the v2 prototype, please note that there are small aesthetic changes that I've made since this proto.

I know it's exceptionally early, but if anyone wants to trade a WKL no logo black for a WKL no logo navy, let me know!
