There is a double shot set of the SA style profile (K-series) coming: it's called Rad-Away (very similar to Nuclear Data) but it will be a Planck set only. Apparently Devlin don't have a mold for the 6.25u space bar in K-series, and they charge a lot (something like 10,000 British pounds, from memory) for creating new molds - so keep in mind that the custom double shots you see SP making will almost never happen with Devlin. The lambda doubleshot key that SP made was originally meant to be a group buy with Devlin, but it was just too expensive with them - I'm assuming that's why the lasered lambda was included in this sampler.

Edit: according to a later post by UKKeycaps pricing for new molds by Devlin is "4k+ for new key shape. 400 for custom legend blocks" Seems to me like novelties are somewhat cost effective provided you use an existing key shape and spread it across 200+ units, but a 6.25u space bar is still going to cost a bomb.

That is some good info! Thanks.
