Hi, I'm mujimanic. I'm spreading the word out that our Group Buy is going well, but we've got a few left to sell with one week to go!

The ButterKnife is a keyboard case built for g Heavy Industries' Butter Stick PCB. Starting as a joke, this novelty case is a fully-functional chording keyboard. It's made of 3 lbs of laser-cut stainless steel. I am collaborating with Germ (g Heavy Industries) to bring this meme to you.

To spice things up, we are also offering embroidered aprons for sale!

Not familiar with the Butter Stick?
The Butter Stick is a surface-mount ortholinear 20% chording keyboard that accepts input akin to stenography. Alternate keys and key layers can be accessed by typing multiple keys together.
For more information on the Butter Stick, see here: http://docs.gboards.ca/Meet-Butter-Stick#modes

Thanks for checking this project out!
