I just got this keyboard from Zed (massive thanks for everything) and it features one of my favorite switches, the clicky SMK 2nd gen.

I have a custom with the same switch in Alps mount that I bought from someone on MM, but it was in a UK ISO layout on a Varmilo case- so it is both cramped and I couldn't find the correct caps for it (I use the numpad ENTER instead of a regular ISO one).

The icing on the cake is that it has this really cool looking font on the number row and all the legends are PURPLE - which is not so easy to see so I hope the pics do it justice.

Mmm, da purple. <3
I love the SMK 2nd Generation switches, as well. So effortlessly crispy, like biting into a Granny Smith apple.

This is a very good analogy. Each keystroke feels and sounds so nicely snappy.
The color was a great bonus and now that I am using this more, I really like how the typeface on the legends is different enough for me to notice -- I'm a softcore-typography nut myself.
