Bakeneko60

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 PCBs (hotswap & solder) 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!

Amazing value, wonderful customer support

The Bakeneko60 is best entry keyboard for beginning enthusiasts due to its ease of assembly and the provided hotswap PCB.
Additionally, customer support sent me a new PCB when my previous PCB was sent to me damaged without question or hassle.

Great experience

The Best Daily Driver

This was my first keyboard that I bought about a year ago and continues to be the keyboard that I use the most. It's added so much value to my life and also gotten me into this amazing hobby. I love it for it Compact size but still has a very quality feeling. Is also the keyboard that I feel works the best with the most switches. I have other much more expensive $500 boards to use but I still continue to use this one.
