Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 120K readers.

After the Uninarf, Sebastian Stumpf aka ADreamOfStorms got back to true splits and published Narfkb2, a revision of the original Narfkb.

I expanded the existing design to use 42 keys, increased the columnar stagger, changed the choc footprints to mx, cleaned up the pin allocation and basically reworked the entire routing – ADreamOfStorms.


  • 42 keys (6x3+3 – extra pinky column)
  • hotswap MX (MX thumb keys – narfkb had low-pro thumb keys)
  • increased stagger
  • Waveshare RP2040-Zero controller
