Inspired by RominRonin's Katana60,
kIt5uN3FP aka Maker-Gitsune published his handwired, 3D-printed 40% keyboard with symmetrical stagger: the Splaynck.
I couldn't find [a mechanical keyboard] that was exactly what I wanted, so I made it myself. I was inspired by the SICK-68 and the Katana60. It has gotten me through a semester (with coding) and ~10k words of prose amongst other things – kIt5uN3FP.
40% (45 keys)
Symmetrical, isometric stagger
