43 Studio OP Black Switches pays homage to the Cherry "Nixdorf" Black Switches. Using a proprietary step-by-step process, the top housing utilizes a secret material to provide similar characteristics to the original Nixdorf switch. This new and improved version also utilizes thicker pins for better hotswap support and the tried-and-true JWK gold-plated spring.

Love this switch. It does not need film, so it saves lots of time if you lube them. 65g is not stressful to type on. The pins secure into the PCB tighter than sp star grey, much tighter than gat ink blacks, so you can use hotswap plateless. I don't hear any scratch after lubing. It pops loudly into my earholes on a half plate bakeneko.
Very smooth linear and also very clacky depending on the build
Smooth, great sounding switch.
Honestly these are one of my favorite switches. Depending on how you lube, you can get a nice “clack” or a nice “thock”. Definitely worth getting.
