INTRO
The SAAG65 is our first attempt at designing a keyboard and it has been a pleasure, now we are ready to release the board to the market.

Having years of experience when it comes to manufacturing machined goods in China. We know manufacturing isn't easy and as a new keyboard design house we aim to please our customers.

ABOUT ME
MoreAround 5 years ago I wanted to design and make my own keyboard but I didn't know where to start. During this time I started another business venture that led me to a path that involved the design and production of electric skateboard parts. With that experience, I gained valuable knowledge and skills in the manufacturing process which allowed me to bring my designs to life

Eventually, my passion for mechanical keyboards brought me back to this idea and I found the open source Bakeneko project. This sparked my inspiration to create my own twist on the design and led to the creation of the SAAG65 keyboard.
