Quality Disclaimer

The is a board aimed to stay within a budget, and maintain affordability. It's fully aluminum and anodized beautifully, but to achieve this price point, the quality bar is lower than some of our more "premium line" boards, such as the Satisfaction75 and Chimera65. Customers have been happy with the quality of the Brutal-line boards, but we like to communicate this prior to purchase.

In general, large defects to visible faces will make a board B stock. But minor issues, small issues that are only visible in just the right angle of lighting, or small dents or blemishes on the bottom of the case that are not visible when the keyboard is fully built and on the desk will not cause a B stock evaluation.

Keyboard cases that ship with keyboards are meant to protect keyboards during shipping. These keyboard cases are made to order to fit the keyboard precisely, and are limited in quantity. As such, we do not replace keyboard cases if the keyboard case arrives damaged. Ideally, no keyboard carrying case arrives damaged, but at times, couriers are rough with packages and damages can occur. In these instances, we offer customers a $5 coupon off their next order as compensation.

We use photos of our products in hand when possible to show how they look in realistic situations. Sometimes the product might look different within the same listing- this is generally caused by different lighting conditions. When possible, we try to use different lighting conditions to show what the product might look like in different scenarios.

Skeleton Key
My First Build!

I purchased the Brutal60 black with the window key for my first ever build and I love it. The case is heavy and sturdy so it helps keep it on the desk and to help it from moving around. I love the CNC work and design being minimalistic and having the cannon logo on the case. I purchased the A stock and saw no imperfections with the case. I highly recommend the Brutal60. Also I was impressed with the amount of goodies that came along with the case!

I love wkl

This keyboard met all my expectations, I got the navy WKL and it came perfectly fine. As far as I can tell the anodization is perfect and there are no scuffs on the inside or outside of the case. My only issue is that the only plate that is sold is fr4 which I don't really like the sound of. After force break the force break mod most of the hollow/pingy sound is gone and I would definitely recommend using the force break mod.

Solid HHKB

One of the only HHKB style 60s readily available on the market. The ano is nice and clean with no marks or scratches. The dark green is a really really cool and standout color. The build is very easy and simple too. My couple of concerns are the price, its a little overboard for how simple this build is, and the limited plate options, I personally would like to see a POM plate like was ran in the GB for the board. Overall, a simple keyboard that fits a niche build option. I'm satisfied with it.
