Petrichor by AKB

FRL 1800 | Target MSRP of Around $250

Petrichor by AKB is an F-rowless 1800 keyboard that was designed with simplicity and usability in mind. The combination of the all purpose layout and integrated USB passthrough make this keyboard an ideal workhorse.

The goal of petrichor is not to reinvent the wheel, but rather build upon what AKB knows works. Simple, well implemented gasket mounting, and a restrained design that still captures its own identity.
