MBK Choc Keycaps

  • Sale
  • Regular price $15.00


MBK profile has been designed for Kailh low-profile Choc switches, with the following goals in mind :

- a scooped top, with a smooth curve made to hug your fingertips ;
- high corners, to easily find your way to the right key ;
- flat, low-profile (why use low-profile switches with high profile keycaps?) ;
- meet Kailh requirements, for compatibility with existing keyboards such as the Planck Light;

There are not many alternatives available on the market right now for Choc keycaps, and none of them meet the quality standards we would like to see. So this group buy is an opportunity to make them available to the community.

This keycap profile has been made in California USA by /u/mburger89. After 3D-printing them, and several iterations on the different sizes (angles, homing bump, etc.), he now feels confident enough to have them produced.

The homing keycap is innovative in the sense that it is neither the usual bump, or bar or scoop. As you can see on the image below, the front side is horizontal (ie. no scoop) with a tactile ridge that your fingertips will recognize instantly.

Please note that due to the manufacturing process, the "homing edge" will probably be less “sharp” than shown in the render as it is impossible to machine such edges.

Details:

Perfect fit and feel with high-quality looks!

I just don't want to take my fingers off these keycaps! The textured PBT looks clean from every angle. The larger top surface and gently rounded scoop feel effortless and accurate, especially on smaller split keyboards that keep your fingers near the home row.

Now I only want to type on Kailh Choc switches with these MBK key caps. Seriously.

Nice, but no legends.

Just in case someone makes the same mistake I did, these are all blank key caps with no legends. They do seem nice, but if you are not a perfect touch typist or are working on a custom layout like me these will not be usable. The packaging was a nice touch.

Great Keycaps

Really like these caps. The options for low profile choc keycaps are pretty limited, and I am glad I found these. This was also my first order from MKUltra, and I loved the packaging. Great experience and will order from y'all again.
