Quality Disclaimer

  • Internal streaks, blemishes and uneven anodizations that are not visible after being built are within QC expectations.
  • Pictures may be different than actual products due to variations of lightings. However, the designer has tried his best to capture all the finishing.


  • Chapter 1 was designed to honour the material used, by making these materials visible in a sophisticated and striking way.
  • This is done by easily making all parts that make up the board visible in one way or another; allowing for nearly endless ways to mix and match plates, knobs, weights and your own keycaps to achieve a build that is truly what you want!
  • The single piece weight spans across the width of the board that creates an amazing sound - specifically for the alphas with the higher density of brass, copper or a stainless steel weight! 
  • The custom knob was designed to match the aesthetics of Chapter 1 and brings a totally new look and feel to keyboards with knobs!
  • The leaf spring plate was designed to achieve a bouncier, softer typing feel rather than being flexy. This effect works perfectly on PC and aluminium plates, with brass and copper naturally being a much stiffer.
