A small update : The IKKI X Zen Pond collab will start in the middle of November tentatively. Exact dates, prices and more info will follow soon.

Just FYI, the IKKI collab board WILL NOT COME WITH GMK ZEN POND KEYCAPS.
Since the keycaps GB ends in a few days, it would mean that they wont be on sale during the keyboard GB. So, you have around 5 days to grabs the keycaps kits!

Once again, thanks for all the support and love!!

Important announcement regarding GMK Zen Pond

GMK Zen Pond was slated to end on the 7th and the IKKI Aurora  X Zen Pond keyboard will start its sale later this week (tentatively).



It would be really really unfair for people who aren't yet aware of the set / want to match their themed IKKI board to miss out or buy at a higher price later just because the two GB dates were not synchronised.
Hence we have decided to extend the GB for one more week to enable interested people to buy the set to match their keyboard!

It was a last minute decision from my side and I thank all the vendors for understanding and agreeing with the proposal!

The GMK Zen Pond GB will be closed on 15th November.
