Just wanted to share my precious clickityclack with you lovely folk.

It's a Filco Majestouch 2 TKL with MX Blue switches, Imsto "thick" PBT blank dark grey keycaps and a custom made Paranoid charcoal grey cable.

Pardon my lack of 'taking pictures' skill. :oops:


Simple, yet beautiful. <3



This custom Paranoid mini cable is perfect for people who want a detachable cable without damaging the case!

And it contains this little baby, AW YEAH, programmable Filco!


I want to thank the following people for making my keyboard look and feel as it does right now:
  • kekekeroro, for selling his keyboard to me;
  • Imsto, for the keycaps;
  • Paranoid, for the custom cable (His shop)
  • bpiphany, for his work on the custom controller, hmm colemak Filco goodness!

Now you just need to erase the led lettering in the case and it will be a stealth Filco :D

Edited, thanks for letting me know. He did an awesome job on the controller!

Well, I thought it would look better to have a longer stub so you could see how the cable looks when not plugged in.
It's a perfect fit in my keyboard bag so I like it.

Thank you! :)

It's funny to see my colleagues try to type on it when they want to show me something. :D

You are welcome, how much did you pay for the caps? I am searching for Thick PBT Kaps on my ISO Quickfire ;)
And for a really nice and soft braided Cord too, that stock Quickfire cable is so unflexible and hard :/

I would switch the layout to dvorak to confuse the colleagues even more hahahaha :D

I paid €45 which included €10 shipping. So for €35 I got a nice thick PBT 84 keycaps set.
Also, I asked Imsto to put a price of €20 on the package so I could avoid paying customs.
He's a nice guy, only the language barrier can be a bit difficult.

If you're looking for a custom cable I really recommend Paranoid's shop!
You can choose between a lot of colors and options.
Especially with the new connectors he got, the cables look awesome!

Really nice cables! I am going to order one or two of them ;)

Thats a nice move dropping that price to 20€ but where did you bought those?
And are the caps available in ISO? with center setemmed Capslock Key?

I bought the caps from this shop, the seller is called Imsto.
Just pm him if you need information.

I don't know if he has ISO sets available, but I do know you get a stepped capslock with the set, I don't think it's center stemmed though.
I can't check it for you because I'm in another country atm, it's probably best to just ask Imsto.
