Not sure how I feel about the one lonely island Insert key. IS that the intended knob support position?

Edit: Is the circle in the middle of the keyboard a knob? I'm so confused.

The circle in the middle is a knob,Knobs control the volume.It's programmable.The original design was not like this, the knob used to be above the arrow keys, but the knob was shorter and touched the keycaps during operation, so I changed the position of it.So I removed one of the keys and moved the knob up

Can the plate not have tabs on the side of the case?  Seems to make installing gaskets more complicated with different sizes on top of it making the board more stiff.  I think gasket tabs on the top and bottom only will make the board feel better and less complicated to build.

That angle is close to a wrist breaker.
Is the angle finalized or are there any chances of lowering it?

Since it's named after the Nordic god Odin, it would be cool to see Runes on the weight.
Or the vegvisir rune symbol on the weight, which mean't ''Driections'' which was a symbol carried on charms & Jewels to help people through storms by Odin.
or make the board have some type of connection with Odin to make sense with the name.

I'll chime in too with the calls for lower angle and removing the knob or at least moving it, but more importantly...

bottom looks like a corny 1.2og...maybe I am alone. Not sure how I feel about that button/knob in that location, sort of makes the numpad feel like a separate entity instead of being part of the board.

High key a bit... Peculiar? (ugly)

it doesn't need to have a knob for no reason.. also these renders are inconsistent

fix these and I think it'll be alright

9 degrees is too steep.
Love the rotary encoder.
Love the key above it.

This has just about everything I have been looking for in my next build.  A perfect antidote for the endless stream of 60/67% boards.  Just lower the angle and I'm in.

Other than the steep angle (as others said), I really think the rotary encoder should heighten a little bit compared than what is shown in current renders.
Imagine having an SA profile on this with the height of the rotary encoder so low.

Looks good, however it'll be better to lower the typing angle, maybe to 7-8 degrees. Not really sure about the rotary since it seems to sit so low.

This board is really nice, extra key and rotary encoder and all. I really dislike the tall knobs on other boards. IMO they should never be taller than the height of cherry profile R1. I'm happy with the short knob as long as it is easy to use.

9 degree angle is awful. 5 degree is much better, more ergonomic and more aesthetically pleasing. I've used a MARS 8.0 with an 8 degree angle and hated it. My wrists start screaming at me.

I absolutely love the knob location, size, and height. The weight and usb c "block" are kinda odd? The angle is way too high, but other than that, it looks really good.

I like that KBDfans offers great bang for your buck. I like the side-profile. I do not like how blatantly the bottom attempts to mimic the style of Matrix boards.

I'm mostly with Justin on this one.
I also agree that the angle seems a little too high.
Currently undecided on how I feel about the knob.

Not a huge fan of the weight and usb c badge/cover design but outside of that I like it. I personally quite like the angle but would be fine with lower at long as its 6 or higher.


edit- an alu plate option would be dope

Maybe you could do without the side gaskets and just do the top 3, might decrease rigidity centered around the lateral aspects and provide a little more flex

WKL option, lower angle and a more prominent knob for easy access. Always nice to see more full size / 1800 layouts.

If possible I would like to see the side gaskets removed, at least for an experiment as I really wasn't happy with how rigid the D65 was due to those side gaskets.
Would also like to see some different knob avail if possible. I would say either make the knob more pronoucned in the design or remove it entirely imo.
Otherwise, it's looking like a really interesting full size

Odin looks great, I think the 9-degree angle is fine.  I, too take issue with the knob though. It needs a feature to grab more than that tiny point.   

Love that white-on-grey keyset, anyone know if it exists ?

I for one love the knob. But I agree the typing angle may be a little too steep.

I love to scroll and the idea of being able to do it with out having to move my hand to my mouse sounds awesome. You mentioned volume control but I assume encoder functionality is programmable?

Also, I think I really like the weight and usbc badge. Its fun without being obnoxious.

Will this have ESD protection? I don't necessarily mind the knob but I do wish it was slightly lower and would rather see a 2u 0 key.

Agreed that 9 seems a bit high of an angle. And the knob is just strange.

That grey color looks amazing though. Also I've been looking for a solid full size at a decent price. Hope this can make it there.

Finally a custom keyboard in the full size territory!

Love the knob position, really makes great use of the extra space on a compact full size lay out like this.

Is is possible to have a shallower angle?  5-7 seems to be standard. If people want a steep keyboard they can just tilt it up, but if it's steep by default it's steep forever.

Hot dang yes, this is relevant to my interests.

Also love the large low-profile knob, there's a reason professional gear has infinite scrollers set up like that more often than not.

I'll probably end up getting this, but only if that angle is lowered. Something around 7 would be ideal, over 8 I wouldn't use.
