There you go, perfect! Thanks :D
For some reason I only saw the M9, might be the lack of oxygen bringing all the keyboards up a flight of stairs hahaha

no worries, the cover does look nice though.

In other topics, I am enjoying the 8801 converter that I got here from a maker - it works for the Type A (that strange 5 pin PS/2 like connector). Works like a charm
Woah there is a type A converter? How do I get one?!
I also wrote a converter. I can make you one if you'd like.

Edit: Doh, I'm dumb. It looks like type A is totally different.

So I just got home and the packaged arrived.
Spoiler:

The SORD keyboard has a cherry switch in it, but it clearly isn't MX mount. I can't find any info on the switch after a quick google search, and I can't find any info on it. It's pretty linear and very pingy. The mount looks like the usual SKCC T mount, but the base of the switch is very curvy. Maybe someone can ID this switch haha.
Spoiler:

I'll take better pics if anyone else wants tomorrow since I'm beat haha
It seems that you bought the M343, I am another bidder, when it reaches 13500JPY I chose to give up because it exceeded my budget.

I was also about to give up on it as it already went over my budget of 12000JPY, so pretty sure if someone else bidded more I would've already given up XD
But I'll try to document this board along with the rest that I got the best I could on my spare time, but I gotta clean them up first.

You must really love those SKCM creams :D I feel like this one will go for a lot, though historically I saw some Type D's go for reasonable prices. Excited for the mystery board!

I love these but I feel like the prices are high for being in Japan, though I don't have a good intuition on most Topre stuff. They are really pretty though and the knobs are awesome. Any info out there on getting these to work with regular PCs?

By the way @subcat, having never tried older Topre boards, I was wondering if there's anything you can do to restore rubber that's stiffened up. I figured that might be a problem for some of the vintage stuff.

Yeah I was looking for this too but gone in a flash. Really cool board. I'm not sure how I feel about Alps Buckling Spring but the color scheme on the TeraDrive keyboards is niiice. I don't think I would have had it in me to drop the 42k for buy it now but congrats to whoever did.

it certainly is! kind of interesting that the auction started only 2,000 yen below the buy it now price, seems pointless to even include the auction format at that stage, but congrats to the seller on a swift sale i guess

I do get excited about checking though! Epson, realforce, 8801, and alps are the main keywords I use - only takes about a minute to check them all =)

Speaking of omnikibus, I’ve been wanting to write a post on all my omnikey! This weekend I’m traveling to see my in-laws, but we’re leaving our oldest with them for a few days. I’ll still have my 3-month-old but maybe early next week I’ll have some time to do a write-up! No promises though...
