Our version of the Bakeneko65 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 Bakeneko65 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

Bang for your buck

I got my Bakeneko65 back in January to try gummy oring mount. I instantly fell in love with the typing feel and sound profile. The board was a game changer for me in this hobby. Now if we can get a 75% that’s friction mount I would be in heaven. ( yes I love how a 75% looks)

Best entry level custom keyboard

The Bakeneko65 have become one of my favorite keyboard including the Bakeneko60 easy to assemble great quality and one of the best entry level. I have recommended this keyboard to many of my friends that don't want to break the bank on a keyboard. I currently own two of this keyboard and looking forward to add more to my collection in different colors

Great Budget!

This is an amazing keyboard to start out with when you are looking to build your first keyboard, being (mostly) available to buy at any time and not having to deal with group buys. Easy to build for beginners and has an amazing sound and feel

This is such a good board for the price

Gasket mounted 65% board with FR4 plate and reliable cherry clip-in stabs. What is not to like! The zinc weight version has a nice sound and give the board a nice bit of heft. No hollowness or ping coming from the case at all.
