Norbatouch Mark II: Self-Evident-Truths Edition

Norbatouch Mark II: Self-Evident-Truths Edition

$535.00

The Norbatouch is an aftermarket housing for the much-beloved Cooler Master Novatouch keyboard, which uses Topre switches and Cherry-MX compatible sliders. (The Novatouch is no longer manufactured, but they fairly regularly come up for sale on eBay and /r/MechMarket.)

This is a limited edition of 25 frosted polycarbonate Norbatouches, released on Independence Day 2020. This new Mark II variant uses screws to affix the conical risers rather than threading the risers themselves, along with a couple of other subtle improvements to get better threading and machining results in polycarbonate resin.

This housing is also compatible with the Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro S, a Cherry MX keyboard.

Finish

The finish on these is hand-sanded and then medium-frosted, which preserves the ice-like translucency of the material. It is not quite as aggressively blasted as some polycarb keyboards, but it doesn't look unfinished either. Buffing pads will be included to make it possible to change the level of frost according to your tastes, as described in the below video.

Notes

These limited-edition boards will not ship in my customary gift boxes (because, alas, I'm out of them for the Norbatouch). A Novatouch keyboard itself is, of course, not included.
