Kailh Box Master V2's - More All-POM BOXes?

This silenced one is called the Fried Egg… fair enough.

These have probably been around for a while in the other hemisphere, but they’re new to me, and might tick the right boxes for some folks - no pun intended:

Only two days left on the buy - kinda flew under my radar, but hey there it is.

According to the product page all three switches on-offer here are all-POM, including the silenced eggy boi. So that one is like a Silent Box Pink, but with a more moderate weighting and an all-POM housing*. I put an asterisk on that because I’m not 100% convinced that’s accurate - but hey maybe it is and these are closer to silenced Box Creams.

There’s also a linear and a clicky using the traditional BOX housing and square-shrouded stem, also supposedly all-POM, and including a light-pipe lens insert for SMD lighting. Their clear housings are pretty smoky - maybe they’re POM after all;

This one is themed after adzuki bean pudding. :3

I think it’s neat that they’re offering these, especially the eggos, though they’re so close to other switches in my collection I think the only ones I’m chin-rubbing about are the White Owl clickies:


Silenced BOX Pink? Do you mean BOX Red?

BOX Pink is a clicky, and I’m not aware of any silenced BOX clickies reaching our shores yet.

Kailh’s naming conventions are nonsensical if you ask me - but yes - “Silent Box Pinks” are about as unrelated to “Box Pinks” as they possibly could be; they’re linear silents:


Can’t blame them. People sometimes refer to Cherry MX Silent Red informally as Cherry MX Pink.

It’s pretty funny how we all thought it was the square stem that gave the name to Kailh switches when it’s the dust&water resistant internals that make up the BOX. :upside_down_face:

I can’t seem to find any pictures that show the clickbar on the White Owl clearly, I’m interested to see how the diffuser fits around the clickbar. Assuming it uses a clickbar. I did find these while looking for more info on the White Owl though:

Linear, factory lubed, 18mm spring, and also meant to show off RGB.
