Bakeneko65

Our version of the Bakeneko65 features a few key changes from kkatano's original design: We closed the bottom holes, and added cutouts to the plate for easy removal. We also designed our own PCBs (hotswap & solder) to enable the support of multiple layouts.

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

Customize Your Build

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

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.

Beautiful quality / entry level price

I couldn’t be happier with my new Bakeneko65 CNC. I got the silver kit and the finish, texture, and color came out pristine. The crisp and solid feel of the kit, and relative entry level price make it worth it. If I would've gone with a different kit, I think I'd still be eyeing this Bakeneko65.

Great starter keyboard

Got it shipped to Toronto and shipping was very fast. The keyboard itself is easy to put together and perfect for a beginner. Would buy again in a different colour for sure.
