Thanks for looking and supporting made in USA mechanical keyboards!


Does it come with a case? So hard to find a case for a full-size.

we got a custom prototype made in a tx style bag but it was 200 MOQ… not something we can safely purchase without selling that many boards, but if we do sell 200, we will include that case.

I did recently buy a keychron case to test with, and I think it’s honestly a pretty good fit, something I’ll be exploring further.
