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.

We have a Build Guide to help you put this kit together!

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

Amazing keyboard kit for the price.

With a price tag of $135, you cant go wrong with the bakeneko! It's really easy to assemble and sounds very clacky and not muted at all. Stock stabilizers also sound amazing after a little modding, and the carrying case is just a bonus!

Love the Bakeneko

Great feeling keyboard with a lot of personality. The cast aluminum can resonate, but it's personality to me and felt consistent - just part of the design and not a flaw.

With stock Salmon switches, resonance was very noticeable on the right mods, not much elsewhere. Unlubed, these are loud, clattery switches. Feel was still great. With lubed Gateron Yellows, the resonance disappears. A sheet of perforated shelf liner or Polyfil will mitigate it, at the expense of some bounce in the case of the liner (use something very thin). But I prefer it stock.

I have the black (powder coat, but not the "special" grey finish). The interior has expected manufacturing marks. The outside is nearly flawless and more than satisfactory - well within the quality guidelines. I recommend it! ...and pick up the 30a ring as well!
