Yes, we only work with the real JWK (Dongguan Jingweike).
Recently, there was an issue where a fake supplier (called "Shenzhen Jingweike") was misrepresenting themselves as the real JWK (called "Dongguan Jingweike"). The real JWK quickly shut them down; however, this whole situation left some doubt regarding authenticity of the switches that are on the market.
JWK released a second round of these switches which include their JWICK (official English name of JWK) logo present on the top housing, to avoid future instances of fakes being introduced. Please note that these switches are from the first round which do not have this logo written - however, these are authentic JWK products.

Yes, we recommend lubing these switches to remove their stock scratchiness. We found using TriboSys 3203, or a lube of similar viscosity, to provide the best feel and sound.
