Interesting. Bezels a bit wider. Why did you choose cooper for the plate? It comes with PVD to prevent oxidation?

I am personally a fan of stiffer plates, so I decided to go with copper. It will more than likely be clear coated to maintain the color of the copper, without it oxidizing.

Definetly interested tho, potentially if you'd like it.. you could also include some logo on the empty spot (between nav mod and arrow keys)

I don't much like the position of the sakura kanji under the USB port and think it'd look great in that empty area

Since the sakura 660 had such a huge bezel any reason not to add the ~/` key after the escape key?

I understand not having it is the norm. Just curious as to why that's the case.

I am rather interested, I assume the copper will be coated since copper patinas so fast to turning poo brown.
Also surprised no pink or red color option given Sakura trees ( weeb trees ) are all about that pink.

 Torn. Part of me likes how clean the face looks without a design or emblem and they asymmetric bezel sizes. The other side of me cringes at how wide the bezel is on the right. Haha

I'm interested in the unusual plate design. It's top mount, but instead of "tabs" you have a long strip with screw holes in it. And you have a lot of cuts that look like they're designed to increase the flexibility of the plate. I assume you've done some testing already on this, so I'd be interested to hear about the purpose and effect of these design choices instead of speculating myself.

Also I'm sure at least a few buyers would appreciate an aluminum plate option.

As of right now the only sound test that exists is in the rev 1 prototype. Internals are the same by the most part though.

Because I currently have the revision 1 board, with the plate itself being nearly identical, I can vouch for it. As a brass plate, it feels no-where near as stiff as your typical metal plates, and still offers that nice sound that brass produces. The flex cuts definitely allow the board to have a nicer typing experience than other mounting styles like gasket.

The copper will indeed be coated. Although I personally always encourage a chemical patina to get a beautiful and unique color on your weight :)

The rev 1 was more of a trial. There were few problems with the rose gold coloring though. That does not mean that rose gold is knocked off though. The colors are very much subject to change, so you will likely see a few more colors swapped in.

Very nice, not usually a fan of the 660 layout, but I for some reason really like this (think it's cause of the blockered off arrows). Will definitely keep my eyes peeled for this if I can afford it at the time.

Pretty much in order to maintain a good enough QC and high standard for it. Also because for now we want to have a smaller run done just to see if there will ever be interest for a larger r2.

That said, I'm sad to see the blue go, would have much rather lost the purple. Feel like there were probably a lot of people who picked purple who are now going pink. Thought blue was a more distinctive alternative.

Hi there.
Yes ESD protection will be present. Yes it will be USB-C. And yes, there will be an option to buy more PCBs/Plates. The plate file will also be opensourced following the conclusion of the GB
