To accomodate the issue with the excess material in some bottom housings, we now offer 3 bonus switches with every 10 pack ordered. This means with the bonus switches they are less than $0.43 per switch or $4.23 for 10 switches.
The Kingfisher Switch is a brand new switch, inspired by the teals and greys found on the common Kingfisher birds. It features a fully PME top and bottom housing, with its a new proprietary material blend from the manufacturer Tecsee. It has a deeper, more thocky sound than traditional pc based blends. These are sold in packs of 10 + 3 bonus switches.

Disclaimer: The manufacturer Tecsee has confirmed that the presence of some excess plastic shavings on the rail is a property of the PME Material with how it is currently formulated and affects somewhere around 25% of the switches. It is not readily apparent when using the switch until you open it up and can be scraped off in most cases with the edge of a hard small surface (fingernail, small screwdriver, etc.) and it does not affect smoothness usually. Since this is a property of the material this means all PME switches that Tecsee manufacters will potentially have this issue until they refine the mixture which they are working on doing.
