Some more info as requested: We are using a brand new mold for both switches, which is improved from Gateron KS-9. As for the stems, the linear variant uses a standard stem length, where as the tactile variant uses a prolonged stem (as shown here), and as a result, the tactile switch will hit the bottom earlier. Pictures for illustration here.

Also we intend to create a decent stock experience for the linear switch, so it comes pre-lubed; for the tactile one, we understand it's more subject to personal preference on issues like where to lube, so we decide not to pre-lube it.

About the Names

Black Tortoise of the North, Azure Dragon of the East, Vermilion Bird of the South and White Tiger of the West “are four mythological creatures appearing among the Chinese constellations along the ecliptic and viewed as the guardians of the four cardinal directions” (Wikipedia). This time we choose the bird and the dragon, and of course the tiger and the tortoise are coming soon!!
