Hello, I'm Chanmin Kang. We are making a keyboard in Korea.
We designed and manufactured some keyboards, but we are not very well known abroad.
We are pleased to introduce KKINGKONG 660. This keyboard is all made in Korea for precision and quality.

This time, we brought a simple and slim design keyboard.

This relatively small keyboard over the TKL has advantages in good space utilization and portability.
We hope you like it.

Opportunity to get it quickly
[/s]




Before we started GB, we completed some keyboards.
Among the keyboards that have the Anodizing option selected, 20 of the keyboards that have been paid first will be sent first on July 1.



Amount error in Form was fixed.

Cerakote option is +$35 equal to top and bottom. Due to a typographical error that was only in the form


This was an error only in the order form, so $35 was normally requested for the invoice.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact us by e-mail to modify, cancel or refund your order.

Also, why the left blocker is so thin?

I love the board design over all, i'm a sucker for 660 layouts.
And I love the fact that it's super clean and nothing too fancy.

That said, this GB is lacking a lot of pictures, additional info, and typing test videos that showcase various popular switches at this time.

- Why is there no pictures of the bottom?
- Does this have a bottom weight? There is no mention of one, but I see a picture with the bottom weight cutout.
- How come there aren't more typing tests, more tests with various different switches would help this GB.

Again, I love this clean design. And sincerely hope this does well!!
More GB runners the better, at a time where custom keyboard demand is so high definitely helps this community.
I just hope there were more pictures, typing tests, and information regarding the bottom weight

I really hate to add another request to this thread, but I'd like to see a photo of one with blockers with keycaps on

Keyboard looks great, I'm strongly considering joining.

EDIT: man it's a shame that the cerakote is so much more expensive :(

Is there an example of the purple ano?

I'm interested in the board and specifically mentioned purple on the IC form. I'm looking to match it with Laser or VoC and am hoping for a darker purple and not a more pink-purple.

It is exactly AL6061.

The blocker of WKL is equal to 0.25u on both sides.

We are sorry for our lack of consideration. We offer 17 color options above and below. There were so many that we couldn't work with all the keyboards we had in different colors.

We will create a reference image through image editing. However, this will take some time.

When we are in the morning, foreign countries are usually night or dawn.

There are time zone differences, and we have 10 times more to deal with than our original estimates.

 We are checking one by one. All inquiries will be processed in sequential order, so if you are missing, please send it again!

really busy handling these! So we haven't sent an invoice yet. sorry

We start sending invoices in about 4 hours.

Invoices are sent in the order in which the forms were completed.

(Because we write invoices in the order in which the forms were created)

The first 20 payments will be sent sequentially from July 1.



And we will upload color samples and additional typing videos tomorrow!

Anodizing case, aluminum or brass plate

PC and carbon fibre plates are not pre-prepared as options added after IC.

Ah darn, I just paid my invoice. Can I change my options? I chose anodizing because the price for cerakote was a bit too high before.
