History of Tofu65

The first iteration of the Tofu65 was born around October 2019, until October 2022, we have sold more than 26,000 units! Tofu65 is very popular in the community, and it is also the first customized mechanical keyboard for many enthusiasts. The minimalist design and low price made it an excellent entry-level mechanical keyboard.




New Design

Tofu Jr continues the design language of Tofu65 and is still a minimalist design style... with some small changes.

Gasket or top mount? It's up to you!

Pick the mounting style you love by matching it with different plate options to experience a completely different typing feel.
 

Silicone socks gasket mount

Top mount






We transplanted the silicone gasket design of the Tiger lite to Tofu Jr, and we also included support for top mount! If you like top mount, you don't need to buy any additional accessories, we've provide the extra screws within the kit.

What's in the box

Customize your configuration and make it your own with your choice of different plate materials, PVD stainless steel weight, and case colors.

Multiple plate options to choice

Plate material of Tofu Jr come in the following 4 options, Brass, Polycarbonate, POM, and FR4

If you like a stiffer typing experience, you can choose Brass, especially with Top Mount. Brass tends to also provide a higher pitch tone. Flex-cuts have been added to reduce some of the stiffness of the plate.

Polycarbonate is a fairly strong plastic. Because of this, we removed flex-cuts in favor of having a fuller sound. With Polycarbonate, you can get a soft typing experience, and fairly deep sound.

Pom is a self-lubricating material, which is also relatively soft. Unlike Polycarbonate, the difference is that POM can give a deeper sound profile.

FR4 is a fiberglass material that is also used to make PCBs. With FR4, you can get hardness between Polycarbonate and Aluminum. It is fairly flexible and had a warm muted sound.






Programmable PCB

Programmable with QMK firmware and it supports online Via tools.

The PCB has a flex cut, and is 1.2mm thick. It also supports per-key RGB.

Tofu Jr's PCB is softer, thanks to the removal of the USB port and other hard points from the previous mounting system. It also benefits by using a daughterboard connection.
