Our version of the Bakeneko60 features a few key changes from kkatano's original design: We closed the bottom holes, added cutouts to the plate (to allow for assembly removal), and modified the case to be made using a casting process. We also designed our own hotswap & solder PCBs with multiple layout support.

Just add keycaps and switches for a complete build! Our Build Guide will help you build this kit from start to finish. For added comfort, pair your Bakeneko with a wooden wrist rest.

Budget Price, Endgame Feel

Originally designed by kkatano, the Bakeneko60 is an open-source keyboard featuring an o-ring gasket. An o-ring between the plate and PCB provides friction to hold the plate/PCB assembly in the one-piece case. Cutouts on the PCB allow the o-ring to rest on the mounting points built into the case. The result is a bouncy typing feel with a great sound profile

Customize Your Build

Several addons are available including different types of o-rings, wrist rests, and PCBs!

Quality Disclaimer

In order to allow us a quicker cadence of restocks and keep the price low, our Bakeneko60 uses a casting process. Please reference the quality guide below on what you can expect for surface finish quality with the Bakeneko60.

Great Board!!

This is my 1st custom keyboard and I love it! Great weight, easy to set up, and the grey color is beautiful. Highly recommend

Fantastic board for the price

One of the best entry keyboards that is readily available.

Fantastic Entry Board

Bought as my first custom keyboard and it was a very enjoyable building experience that is of fantastic value for the price. The Bakeneko60 offers a soft, comfortable typing experience with a classic gummy o-ring sound that is hard to beat. At this price, I don't believe there is a better option for custom keyboards.

Showed me what a custom keyboard could be

After a buggy Ducky One 3 and an overdampened KBD67 Lite left me underwhelmed, the Bakeneko60 finally gave me an intro to custom keyboards. I still love typing on it and the clacky fullness of the alphas that go along with the o-ring mount. The stock FR4 plate suits it well, and many switches sound good without relying on filler, so you get a sense what they might sound like in other keyboards. This is also a low-cost way to try a 60%, and it travels easily. It can sound metallic on the right mods due to the o-ring tightness there, but it's not bad. If you don't like it, a small amount of poly-fill removes it almost entirely (and leaves the sound mostly intact, otherwise). Sometimes, it's just nice to return to the Bakeneko. I keep restraining myself from impulse buying a second, NG Red one. (Mine is black.)
