Brass Weight
Interior design - Elegant Fluted design pattern. The front of the weight is adorned with a beautiful fluted pattern design and is secured with two countersunk hex bolts
Exterior design - 4-Pointed Star Star with 3D Effect. The rear of the weight features a 4-pointed star design, which bears a resemblance to the logo of Moon KBD. The embossed star glimmers beautifully from all angles. Rubber feet provide ample clearance to prevent instability on the case.

The brass weight is showing on both the interior and the exterior.
The first PVD samples show some very light blemishes, will try and rectify this. This is our first time doing PVD.

Who am I?

Around 5 years ago I wanted to design and make my own keyboard but I didn’t know where to start. During this time I started another business venture that led me to a path that involved the design and production of electric skateboard parts ( https://www.instagram.com/mooneskate/). With that experience, I gained valuable knowledge and skills in the manufacturing process which allowed me to bring my designs to life
Eventually, my passion for mechanical keyboards brought me back to this idea and I found the open source Bakeneko project. This sparked my inspiration to create my own twist on the design and led to the creation of the SAAG65 keyboard.
