Reserved!

11/18/2021 -- Based on the IC responses (and several people messaging me on discord) we added a WKL as an option, but sacrificed green as a color option to do so.

12/14/2021 -- Added proto pictures and announced price.

Looks great! Big fan of FRL TKLs. Just curious for my own understanding, is there a reason why there wasn't a vertical flex cut to separate nav cluster/arrow keys from the rest of the board?

The infill on the flower is real clean but an option with the engraving without the infill would be nice.

that's a normal price for something like this

is it expensive? sure. but that's just what keyboards that aren't being run by a massive operation cost. machining and materials are really expensive right now.

Very nice. I love to see F-rowless TKLs.

You mentioned that anodized alu plate will be an option. Which colors will be available?
And also, why not to add silver as a case color?
I think classic Korean combo of silver case + red plate might be popular.
