Introduction
Hi keyboard friends, this is Velocifire. Today we bring one elegant 75% custom mechanical keyboard designed by knife lab -- dolphins 75.

Just like the name of the keyboard, its design inspiration comes from the streamlined shape of the dolphin's forehead bulge and the gradual shrinking shape of the tail.
The special curve design makes the keyboard look simple and elegant.

Besides, it provides you the smooth silky touching feel with better case craft, feel like touching the dolphin skin.
As lovely dolphins are friends of human beings and always accompany us at sea, we want to make Dolphins75 more user-friendly in daily life, just like the dolphin accompany you all the time.

Hi everyone, as there's dolphin from other studio, we decide to change the name to: dolphins75 to avoid confusion,  hope you can understand, thank you! :D

Naming this the Dolphin 75 when the real Dolphin keyboard is an iconic design is not enough. This keyboard is not in the same league as the real Dolphin. Your only design element that is dolphin related is the word dolphin on the back in a default script.
This is a nice keyboard, but calling it a dolphin is just wrong. Look at your sculpture there. See the flowing curves of the dolphins and waves...Now look at your keyboard.... Hard edges exactly the way a dolphin isn't.

Rename your board because It looks like you are trying to trick new members into thinking your board is the design icon.

To be clear I think its a nice looking board, but come up with a more applicable name.
