So this client wanted a very specific layout, with a very specific keycaps set. And an ALT function that would print the "shrug" text emoji.

Say hello to this
64 key, full CNC aluminum case
Gateron Ink Black switches (lubed)
Super thiccc 2.5 mm brass plate,

Keycaps set
MT3 profile Susuwatari set.

Love the profile and how they keycaps hug your finger up while typing.

I think it might be time for me to gather pieces to build my own as a gift in the future

    Yes, it actually does type the ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ emoji.

    I know a lot of people who would like that in their keebs

    I feel a bit uneasy about that right shift tho

    @brown I do too, but that's the layout they chose so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    That is a gorgeous board! Well done!

    I think I'll need to go jump into my qmk config and add a shrug key 🤣 Love it!

    Where do you source your parts?
    I’ve been looking to build my own for quite awhile, but I have no idea where to get anything but cherries and some keycaps.

    Also, you should post your site/details; I’m sure you’d get some orders from us 😊

    These 2 I have built for now.

    1st build:
    Everything was bought out of: kbdfans.com

    2nd build:
    Case, PCB, Switches : kbdfans.com
    Stabilizers : thekey.company
    Keycaps :drop.com

    I have a 3rd build coming in the future but the case itself is not in production yet, so I have to wait for that

    There is a suuuper good offer right now going on in

    You preorder the whole keyboard, it includes everything + keycaps + cable + carrying case for $190.00 USD
    Link ( novelkeys.xyz/products/nk65-milkshske-edition-gb )

    It is a steal (considering the cheapest I've built in parts only has been around $300.00)

    I don't have a site for now since I've only just begun getting heavily into the hobby, but if anyone needs help with a build they have in mind I would gladly help with pieces and info. Also I need a new soldering iron cause mine stopped working :(

    Loving the dolch, per usual. QMK+?

    Also, you get the email about holy pandas being back in stock?

    @SortOfTested yes!!! But to be honest the client didn't want to wait so we jumped Glorious train for their version after seeing/reading how bad the QA has been with the last 2 drops of them.

    Personally I'm waiting for the tangerines to be back. Best/smoothest linear I've had the pleasure to type on, and the kiwi's are also great, sad I missed out on those, could've made a pretty penny living those and re-selling.

    I still need more capital, but hopefully now I can have a stray income and take it more seriously to have this as a side business

    How do you type a forward slash?

    @guitargirl15 the shrug emoji key. If you press ALT + the emoji key you get ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, if not you get \ and shift + the key gives you the ?

    @Lyym Stunning keyboard, well done!

    I would tire people in less than a day with that shrug emoji easily accessible, though

    That shrug is in the right spot, give that man a beer++

    Do you accept orders?

    That far right shift makes it unusable for me but the rest is really nice

    That shrug key is 10/10

    Gotta ask though, is this like a commission you take? Making custom boards and stuff?

    @uyouthe is there anywhere I can contact you to talk this out? Discord, twitter, insta?

    @LotsOfCaffeine right now, it's been just close friends/ friends of friends. But if you'd like I can try and assemble the package / give you a price of what you're looking for and see if that works for you. Is there a way to contact you outside of DevRant? Discord, Twitter, insta?

    currently interested in checking different possibilities for a board, but I'm not really settled yet

    That shrug key is the best thing I've ever seen.
