Drop Lord Of The Rings Black Speech Keyboard

The Eye of Sauron Sees All

Just like the rest of the series you get several caps to swap out and a tool to do it with.  The switches are nice and hefty, with a decent constitution considering the abuse they have endured.   The lighting on the Black Speech keyboard is just as subdued as on the others, almost invisible unless you type directly over the keyboard.  It seems a pity they didn’t find a way to swap in red LED lighting, but that would have certainly increased the price.

It’s a good choice for touch typists, as the english lettering is very small and the colour of the caps is a rather dark gray.  Like with the Khuzdul model it is very attractive to a Lord of the Rings fan.  The Eye of Sauron is etched on beautifully and the backwards sloping Black Speech characters really do add something to it.

It’s on sale for $30 off MSRP, and $169 is a fair price for the chassis and switches.  The keycaps are sold separately for $130 if you were so inclined, including the pointy eared one.
