Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

Fiðrildi is a 34-key keyboard inspired by Reviung, Corne, and the Lord of the Rings Elvish keycaps.

3x5 plus 2 thumb keys per half. The column stagger is just slightly more exaggerated than the Corne, and the halves are angled 2 degrees more than the Reviung.

I have a 34-key split, and I mostly use it in this position, so I thought I’d give this setup a try. One less battery to charge and one less micro to program – ButteredBread5255.
