Why Gasket Mounted? It's because I enjoy gasket mounted keyboards, While Top mount and Sandwich is also my to-go. But still, must admit that Gasket mount is the most popular and go-to choice for almost every new beginner or enthusiast.

To-do List right now


1. Add POM & FR4 Plates
2. Sent out to Proji (Mr. Keeblook) for a built stream + Find another content creator to build them on stream.


Designed By: Alfred And Steve P 2021


Big Thank You to Olivia, Owl, Jaekeyed for the permission for the keycaps <3

wew another gasket 65%... joking aside, this will be decent if the price tag is kept . . .
edit: please, elaborate what "gasket" it is... there are so many gasket keyboards nowadays, is it o-ring gasket a la 356 mini? tabbed gasket like keycult? strip gasket like geon f1? put silicone everywhere gasket like rama?

Is there plans to have some sort of engraving, logo, or lettering on the brass weight, I think that would look really good otherwise looks great.

Yes that will be updated in about 24 hours

Yes i'm also considering that, At first i was working on multiple design of the weight but ended up not liking all of them. If blank weight it's looks like a lazy thinking but i do really like them personally, Another goal for this board is to not have any branding on the external design, I'm hoping back to the drawing board to add a few design for the weight and will be updated to the IC

The pricing is reasonable and I personally like the sepperation of the macros from the rest of the board while the arrows only get an small bumper between it and the rest of the keys (like most 65% do). I would probably get the e-white one
