Bakeneko65 Keyboard kit

Sound test here!

The CannonKeys version of the Bakeneko65 features a few key changes from kkatano's original design: they closed the bottom holes, added cutouts to the plate (to allow for assembly removal), and modified the case to be made using a casting process. They also designed their own PCBs (hotswap & solder) with multiple layout support.

Just add keycaps and switches for a complete build! The CannonKeys Build Guide will help you build this kit from start to finish.

  • Next-Gen (NG)

    New consistent finish with texture! Don't lick it, though. I know you want to.

  • Flash

    Second version of the Next-Gen finish, with glitter added for a whimsical sparkle effect.

  • Pearl

    Third version of the Next-Gen finish, utilising a multi-coat technique to apply a smooth pearlescent clear coat over the base color. Damn, that's hot.
