"Multicolor Anodizing and Electrostatic Coating Surface Treatment Process"

This time, we offer eight colors, including purple, silver, black, gray-gold, Burgundy, and green, which undergo anodizing with delicate sandblasting.
The green color features a refined electrostatic custom coating process, showcasing high saturation and exquisite craftsmanship

Colored weights

Using custom tools to craft this extraordinary and unique keyboard weight, three different manufacturing processes were employed.
Each weight bar requires over 1 hour of manual labor, and each one possesses a distinct and unique texture.
The texture and color on the surface of the weight bar are random and cannot be guaranteed to be consistent.
