KKB Henchmen

Discord

Time to get your evil on.

Kitting:


A familiar kit from me, includes support in base for most popular layouts including Alice, 40s and ISO.


A monotone kit, get your henchman in it’s birthday suit.


Novelties, dress up your keyboard.


In line with Jae from Prototypist’s awesome initiative, a UK ISO kit will be including in all base kit sales in the region.

Namong

Non artisan collaborations:

Alongside the keyset a Hibi June will be on offer. This will be colour matched to the alphas.

Type-B by baul


rake by densus


Muramasa by masje

Colours:

Changelog:

Uploaded board renders
Updated other renders to include row numbers
Added second 2.25u shift key to Base and Alt mods (To support 660 layout and type-k)

If being branded a Minion pervert is what it takes to get a mono yellow set... so be it.

I wonder if it would be possible to give this set the Greg treatment, to shape out a pair of goggles amid the yellow alphas. I think it would be more on brand for a playful theme like the Minions. It could be bundled with the yellow mods.

I did try playing around with this idea as it was the first thing that came to mind, unfortunately it just didn't really look good no matter what layout I attempted. The row stagger on keyboards really doesn't lend itself to a goggle shape.

Bello! I am a minion and I was commanded to tell you how I feel about this set which is to say yes I would like more minion stuff.
This would look great next to the Minion router.

Added vendors for all regions except US and CA.

Doing up new renders with an extra 2.25u shift key. Also working on board renders right now.

Keykobo is currently organising colour samples.

Could the 1U novelty designs to enable XT kitting that would fit the row profiles R1–R4 be a consideration?

Cool project nostyle, GLWIC

keyboard collection - fjell
More
cherry blacks - unlubed - filmed and springswapped with tx 55g mediums - alu Plate | pretty happy with this, the blacks were cherry picked so they weren't that scratchy to begin with, but currently breaking them in, may lube them with a dry lube like ro59 or ptfe powder.
| hhkb bt
More
lubed with tribosys 3203 | like topre a lot, prefer it lubed but did make less tactile but that might have been a skill issue. probably will get more tactile over time as the domes age.
| m0115
More
bad orange alps lol | definitely needs a restoration. planning on wax boiling them and maybe a replacement pcb because the board has only 2 key rollover apparently.
| praxis
More
gateron yellows - lubed with 205g0 - 62g tx mediums - pc plate | probably my favourite keyboard already, feels super nice and sounds pretty good, it's got a great layout as well. probably gonna build this with mx browns, I feel like it would suit the board more.
| camo filco
More
stock with silent reds | Pretty cool looking board, the silent reds are actually good, they are smooth and I don't mind the mushiness (it's not even that mushy as well). the layout is pretty weird, but is useable. will probably mod this in the future. maybe a pcb and plate swap, change the keycaps to something dolch like, and also spring swap the springs in the silent reds.

Unfortunately the cost to do so would be quite considerable. I was playing around with options but couldn't come to anything that wasn't cost prohibitive/worked well in terms of layout.
