QK65 by OWLAB
This is Qwertykeys, a sister company of Owlab that focuses on more affordable models with the spirit of innovation. Today, we are excited to introduce you our first custom keyboard, Qwertykeys 65% (aka QK65).
QK65 aims at creating an enjoyable typing experience at a reasonable price. hence filling in the gap between the gaming brand mechanical keyboards and high-end customized designs. It might not be the type of gadget that you brag about its fanciness. We created it to be a workhorse with fun.
QK65’s body consists of three pieces.
As the most eye-catching part of a keyboard, the top case is a piece of CNC’d 6063 aluminum alloy with an anodized or electrophoretic finish, like most of the custom keyboards that you’d see on the market today.
The weight and the bottom case are where we implemented the idea of mass-production. The weight is a stamped 304 stainless-steel and L-shaped plate with PVD coat of our choices. Please note that it is not mirror-polished. PVD usually refers to glossy surfaces like the weight on Spring, but it is only a coating technique that applies color, similar to anodization or spray-coating.
Typing angle: 7.5°
Front side height: 19.5mm（0.77 inches）
Weight: 1.3kg (2.87 pounds), around 1.76kg (3.89 pounds) after build
