Current status:



Last Cerakote keyboard is done and just awaiting my pickup from the vendor. Spent some time at the anodizer today and we're mostly on track there but a bunch of keyboards need to be re-blasted which is going to keep delaying the remaining units. Almost done guys!

Hey folks,

Just wanted to announce that we just reached a critical milestone - all Cerakote finishing is complete!! There are 8 anodized units left to finish and then this GB will be complete and I can ship proxy orders!

If you ordered directly from Desk Candy and have NOT received your order confirmation email and you think this is in error, please contact me asap!

Thanks everyone

I guess since this is posted here I'll respond before the pitchforks hunt me down. I offered this person an exchange on the top piece for another grey top. What they haven't shown you is that there is a 2 inch square custom engraving on the bottom so I will not be able to exchange the bottom piece.

It is unfair that the exchange cannot be made just because there is a custom engrave. If I knew this would happen, I wouldn't have ordered custom engrave options. Horrible defective housing is my fault? It is not as high quality as an $80 housing, even though it is a U.S. production you always said.

Hey everyone, we are complete on manufacturing! If there are any issues I will do my best to resolve them but I do not intend to keep manufacturing keyboards after this GB is fully wrapped (what that means in a moment) so would appreciate everyone checking in on their order after they receive it - if you email me a few months after you receive your order and there's a problem, I might not be able to help at that point.

So in terms of next steps here:

1. I have reached out to Mykeyboard and zFrontier and as soon as I hear back will work on shipping the proxy orders
2. There are 7 more keyboards to ship to US customers and I've sent order confirmations for all of them so please check your emails
3. Once #1 and #2 are complete, I will start releasing some extra accessories like plates, wrist rests, and XDA Oblique keycaps (Modern M0110 kits). This is done first so those of you who already have a keyboard have first dibs on the extra accessories (if you don't have a Modern M0110 now you're probably not in the market for a plate). Once that runs for a week or so, then I'll start releasing extra Modern M0110 units on hand. Vast majority of these will be Light Sand Cerakote and possibly a few other colors (TBD) in very small quantities.

That's it, thanks everyone and have a good week.

Received. Standard ano finish. No finish manufacturing errors like some others have show fortunately, but extremely disappointed with the poor quality engraving. Both the custom engraving which has unfinished lines of laser pass, as well as the interior 'designed in europe' line that tilts slightly/is not straight.

Overall I am very happy with the keyboard, but I expect more for the time and cost.

Messaged you back directly, sorry you're not happy with the custom engraving quality.

In terms of overall status, there's only one order left where I've tried to contact the person 3 times with no response. If you are order #064 please get in touch with me asap so I can get your keyboards shipped out to you.

Price for extras will probably be $500/ea for Light Sand Cerakote blanks (i.e., no engraving) including a plate. Still trying to work through GB orders as the first priority but if it's just the 1 order (#064) I'm waiting on, I can't let that block doing extras.

Within the next week or so. Will be posting here and also sending an email to the newsletter to announce when units are going live and put behind a timer to make it fair instead of randomly doing it. Will try to give about 2 days notice :)

Shouldn't you wait until all people got their case? Maybe you need to replace one or two.

There's 2 more orders to ship on my end, 1 person has been non-responsive in terms of confirming shipping address (if you're out there order #064 please respond!!!) and the other should ship in next day or two.

I'm not going to sell all the extras at once, there will be 2 or 3 rounds. What that means is that supply will be very limited for each round (only 5-6) but on the flip side, it means that if you miss out, there will be more chances. I'm not doing this from a marketing POV, but so I can keep some extras on-hand longer to deal with issues with other orders potentially and get some $ in the door since I need to pay bills until this is 100% wrapped (incl extras).

6 light sand extras will go live on the Desk Candy website at 9AM PST this Saturday. Price will be $499 + shipping ($25 CONUS, $90 international, subject to change) including your choice of HHKB or Universal plate.

There will be 1 or 2 more rounds of extras in roughly this quantity in the coming weeks if you miss out. Most extras will be light sand (100% light sand this time).

Is it so difficult to just disclose all the colors of the extras you'll be offering? I want to support the project, but at $500 a pop, it would be nice to know any colors other than light sand without having to wait until the last round.

Yes because haven't actually made any samples on the new color, it's not because I'm trying to be secretive.

If you really want to know, I'm trying to do a black anodized finish after what's called "shot peening" the metal (think of firing a bunch of small ball bearings to create a textured finish). It will be like a "tactical black" finish. It should be easy according to the anodizer because I've had enough manufacturing issues, but I'll believe it when I see it. So some chance it will be this and some chance it won't?
