Design Concept

As the studio manager's name is Chain Smoker, we add some cigarette elements to it. There are some cigarette elements on the back, and we use diamond cut to indicate a lit cigarette.

We add the "CKW" letters on the top case to light bar which resembles a cigarette. What's more, 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.

If the keyboard has problems such as dirt/spot/trachoma, as long as the dirt/spot/trachoma is less than 0.8-2.0 mm² (check with a film caliper), the QC check will pass. You can view the table of QC standards for dirt/spot/trachoma.

Group Buys

  • What is a group buy? Group Buys are a method of sale similar to a pre-order. Payments are collected ahead of time in order to submit a bulk order to a manufacturer for production. Due to this, there is often an extended timeline from the order date to when the product is shipped out, with these timelines ranging from a couple weeks to several months. In all Group Buys posted here on the site I will include on the order page an estimated timeline for production and shipment.
  • You missed your estimated timeline. What's going on? We provide weekly updates for all group buys, so that customers can stay informed and up to date on the progress. Many times unforeseen issues can occur, which can cause delays.
  • Can I get a refund for my Group Buy purchase? I changed my mind. The nature of the GB process means that funds for refunds are not available after submission of the group payment to the manufacturer. Refunds may not be available after submission of your Group Buy order. Refunds will not be available after bulk order submission to the vendor. Refunds may be made available on a case-by-case basis at our discretion.
