Group buys are a method of private crowdfunding commonly found within the mechanical keyboard hobby. If you're new to the community or have never participated in a group buy, I encourage you to read the following:

When will my kit arrive?

Your keyboard kit will enter a production phase shortly after the buy time closes, it will then be fabricated to the requested specifications, packaged and finally shipped. By purchasing you agree to potentialย fluctuations in a projects established timeline and ship date.

Can I swap group buy spots with someone else?

If you've worked out a deal with another user feel free to reach out to me via Discord or Email and I will facilitate this transfer for you. I do notย recommend buying groupbuy slots from individuals as it leaves all parties open to being scammed.

Can I get a custom feature for my purchase?

Due to the nature of group buys, I will not do one-offs or entertain requests for custom specifications. This includes custom dye colors, anodization, plate materials, etc. For commissions and collaborations please contact me directly via this portal.

Will extras be available?


Where can I follow group buy updates and announcements?
