The designers of CKW studio want to create a keyboard with more customize possibilities, simple and elegant looking, so they bring us
Three mounting ways in one keyboard
CKW 80 can be made with 3 mounting ways: Plateless/ Gasket/ Top Mount.
The method to realize it is to use a specially designed middle frame. Turn over the middle frame to clamp PCB or plate with gaskets, so that we are able to switch between plateless and plate gasket. If you like top mount, you can even change it into top mount. We designed the screw holes for the top on plates, and add additional gaskets for the top mount.
【Note: For Gasket Mount/Top Mount, the PCB ear needs to be removed (it’s irreversible)】
(1)Plateless → Gasket (By turning over the middle frame), below shows how it works.
(2)Top mount (The plates have screws holes for top mount)
Interchangeable type-c connector and decoration
Someone like left type-c and someone like right one, so we designed a type-c connector which can place left or right as you like. Interchangeable type-c enables you to design your desk layout freer.
As the studio manager's name is Chain Smoker, and we want to make the keyboard more distinctive, so we add some cigarette elements on it.
There are some cigarette elements on the back, and we use diamond cut to indicate a lit cigarette, which makes the back simple and exquisite. What’s more, we change the "CKW" letters on the top case to light bar which resembles a cigarette after many modifications. In order to keep consistent with the lit cigarette on the back, we made a sinking treatment on the light bar top to imitate the ash after igniting.
Although we used some cigarette elements, we do not encourage smoking, so we engraved “ Smoking is harmful to health” inside the bottom case for reminding.
Upgraded PCB Specifications
In order to provide more customize possibilities to you, we think a lot about PCB design:
- Hotswap PCB with various layouts: TKL/WKL, both support ANSI / ISO
- Leave the solder place for knob on F13 considering lots of people like the knob
- Upgrade to Flex-cut black core Bluetooth Hotswap/ Solder PCB, which is better in quality than the ordinary one

Our vision for the Sisyphus 65 was to create a visually appealing keyboard that draws inspiration from the absurdist tale of Sisyphus, a well-known ancient Greek myth. Our aim was to achieve a sophisticated design that is easily recognizable due to its uniqueness.
To pay homage to the dystopian hero, we have incorporated contoured lines on the keyboard that depict the hill and the boulder. The PVD stainless steel column represents the weight of the boulder, while the straight lines on the main part of the case top represent the hill. Moreover, we have included the Morse code "C L I M B" on the top of the keyboard, a word that is used repeatedly in the Sisyphus story. Additionally, we have used dichroic anodizing on the front of the keyboard and the metal badge to add to its charm and character.
Overall, we are confident that the Sisyphus 65 will capture your imagination and leave you enchanted with its exquisite design and attention to detail.
