Chalice is a 40% Alice-like keyboard from owlabs.
The layout is inspired by Curva, another 40% keyboard that is convenient in daily use despite the small size. Symmetry is the key of Chalice’s design. Maicha also adjusted the layout to ensure you don’t need to buy the 40 keycaps kit for Cherry profile if you have double 3U spacebars. Customized 3U wires will be provided as gifts.
Maicha made all four sides of Chalice seamless and hid the screws inside the case to implement the minimalist design. The bottom case is a piece of Stainless Steel with a decorative titanium beam on the internal surface. Like the Spring, Chalice also has a stylized signature on the rear side of the weight as decoration. The PVD-coated weight is matte on the rear and sides, while the bottom is glossy.
