T1 Faker is launching his own custom line of Razer gaming hardware

Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok fans should be on the lookout for some gaming peripherals designed by the iconic League of Legends veteran.

South Korean esports organization T1 Entertainment & Sports has recently announced a strategic partnership with Razer, a gaming peripherals brand. Part of the deal includes Faker designing and developing exclusive products for the company.

Razer’s new line will include Faker’s first custom mice and phone cases. They will be available in the T1 SHOP, located in Seoul. Faker will also be designing licensed Razer hardware, allowing players to have peripherals with a personalized touch as part of Razer Customs.

“I’m very excited that T1 and Faker are partnering with Razer to develop Faker’s first-ever branded mouse. It’s an exciting time in our history and we look forward to building something special for gamers around the globe with Razer,” T1 CEO Josh Marsh said.

Razer’s global esports director, Flo Gutierrez, added that there is “only one Faker,” calling him a “living legend.” Since Faker has inspired millions of gamers around the world, it only felt right for Razer to add him to the “family” and allow him to create some products for their “astonishing upcoming line.”

The partnership between T1 and Razer will also include giveaways and contests for fans to receive some of these new products. T1’s esports academy will also receive Razer products for their students’ setups. This includes Razer Blade laptops, Razer BlackShark V2 headsets, Razer Viper Ultimate wireless gaming mice, and Razer Huntsman keyboards.

Faker and T1 have both been on the rise of late. The star player has helped his team to return to the League of Legends World Championship for 2021 after the Korean squad missed qualifying for the event last year. T1 still isn’t considered the dominant favorite for the event that it once was, but there’s no doubt that with a star player like Faker on the roster, anything is possible for T1.
