Introducing the CannonKeys Bakeneko60

CannonKeys is proud to offer an affordable in-stock aluminum keyboard with great sound and feel.

Originally designed by kkatano, the Bakeneko60 is an open-source keyboard featuring an o-ring gasket. An o-ring between the plate and PCB provides friction to hold the plate/PCB assembly in the one-piece case. Cutouts on the PCB allow the o-ring to rest on the mounting points built into the case. The result is a flexible typing feel with a great sound profile.

Our version of the Bakeneko60 features a few key changes from kkatano’s original design: We 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. We also designed our own PCBs (hotswap & solder) with multiple layout support.

The Bakeneko60 is made from aluminum alloy using a casting process vs CNC. The decision to use cast aluminum was made to drive down cost maximally, and to more quickly produce keyboards. One tradeoff of the casting process is different surface finish properties:

**Please reference this quality guide on what you can expect for surface finish quality with the Bakeneko60. **

Our intent is to try to keep these in stock, or at the least have a quick cadence of restocks.
