Harimau switch review

ThereminGoat brings us a review of the brand new Harimau switches from Rebult Keyboards.
Published August 9, 2021

Announced by ‘Rebult Keyboards’ based in Malaysia, the Harimau switches were first posted on Geekhack on May 4th of 2021.

Coming from the Malay words for “tiger” the Harimau switches were said to be a “tribute to Malaysian wildlife inspired by frankenswitches”.

Coming with long stem poles made of POM, and seated in a combination of nylon top housings and “mystery blend” bottom housings, these switches were to be made unlubed at Durock/JWK.

The Harimaus were to be 67g, high tactile switches initially inspired by Zykos switches, a rather famous frankenswitch that has been the inspiration for a few other tactile switches as of late, such as the Neapolitan Ice Cream switches – ThereminGoat.
