Is it true that Leopold owns the 660 layout patent or itís just a unconfirmed rumor?

Just curious as I saw this being brought up before. Anyone has confirmed information on this?

It is on clueboard indeed...  just curious as I keep hearing about the 660 being Leopold's proprietary layout thing. I definitely love the layout.

I'd love to see this use a gasket or sandwich mount technique, and maybe even have some case foam pre included, bit besides that I'm very interested in it especially for the price, since I'm a huge fan of the layout. (the pink and beige one are looking particularly interesting to me)

We are in Korea. We've made some keyboards, but they're not well known outside.
GB of our keyboard DGL TKL is currently in progress. If you're interested, check it out!

For give a good feeling to both linear and non-click switches,
we had to choose between the bottom mount and the sandwich mount
As a result of the review, we chose the bottom mount for a slim design.
You can hear sounds in the YouTube video of the main thread. Lubricated T1 switch used.

Anyway, we brought KKIONGKONG 660's pictures of beige and special colors
Beige color can also be found on other keyboards currently in GB, but the other color is not.
We've tried something new for a luxurious and traditional design. That's Mother-of-Pearl Lacquerware.

It's all made by hand. It took a lot of time and effort to make it.
The price is so high that you won't be able to choose from the actual order.
But we are trying various things and we want to show that we are trying. We hope you like it.

Thank you very much for your interest. It's beyond our expectations.

We are almost ready for GB, and we are making some parts in advance for quick progress.

The picture below shows the brass plate we made for KKINGKKONG 660.




We're going to start GB right after we've done some preparation. It won't take long.
