At 2018 very beginning of deskeys history we prototyped an aluminium case called 661, but there is too many limitations from og design and EC parts shortage . So we suspend it and focus on EC parts which developed for so long. Finally we are here to release our first keyboard kit.
It is designed to be clean looking, reliable, easy using and no fatigue long time typing . A compact tool on you desk without much of desk space and keep standby NEVEREST.
- Classic and elegant appearance：Integrated very popular layout at the front and all ARC design at the back. Very clean and compact design without any screw holes be seen all around and the most thin bezel in EC kbs ever.
- Super compact structure: Just assembled from three main parts : The plate integrated unibody top case, all function in single Vial supported PCB and name plate embedded bottom case. Assembling so easily and simply.
- Unique typing experience: Thanks to deskeys original designed fully CNC plate integrated unibody top case & bottom case , all empty space inside the keyboard is filled with metal, gives special solid stable thock typing experience. It is high costly manufactured , it is worth.
- More layout choices : We have 3 different layouts for NEVEREST series on schedule: 60, 65 and 19. and 2 more layouts under development. All layouts are USB-C port support. and NEVEREST 19 has two IN&OUT switchable ports for series connecting with other keyboards. NEVEREST 65 layout shown in picture is just prototype , and welcome to discuss the final 65 layout in deskeys discord channel. we will also release the rest 2 layouts in there once ready.
- Vial key maping : Now we have any key for any function in EC kbs finally . All of NEVEREST series support Vial key maping software. Download and open Vial directly then you can see the page shown in Vial MAPPING picture in this link.
- Friendly to OG EC parts : Support OG RF HHKB even Hipro EC parts. and layout keycaps can be found from OG layouts .
- Layout : Main body for chosen layout. Including top&bottom cases, PCB, Gaskets and Screws etc. More details see MAIN BODY picture in this link .

I just personally want to share some personal feeling here for those who really curious about this neverest keyboards . you can not see these words if you are not, haha .
For me , og topre is always my favorite choice for daily typing . I like 660c 980c when I start addicted in EC kbs. then used a second hand HHKB JP for many years just modified pink V1 domes . and used 25th HHKB JP Snow version instead this year without any modification . Until first prototype of neverest came out .
It just feel so nice , although the aftermarket keycaps are much worse than topre ones. It is super silent with just tiny proper sound . it is assembled with carrots 35g , volcano spring, #6 rings . Soft domes always very easy typing on. some wrong input may happen when you start using soft domes . But it will be so … after you get used to them . sorry for my poor English . I don’t miss any of OG kbs any more . It just feels like different level . Like a nice NVH S class compared to A class ? Soft cushion, sound isolation , air suspension ….
It’s maybe just my personal favorite, not suitable for anyone. And I really don’t want to vaunt any of our own product. just really like it . even a little astonished when all des parts assembled together in this neverest kit. I love the experience it gave to me. And I think we are still keep stick on the way to make EC keyboards more and more fun to play with.
