Personally, I don't like it on a TKL

Maybe a 65 or 75 might look ok.

In that render, it looks as if there is a length of brown packing tape holding the halves of the keyboard together.
Needs more shine.

But my guess is that it will not look good as brass either.

Looks too much like the case is being held together by duct tape!

I'm sure it would look better if it was metallic... personally I think it'd look better smaller.

It begs for a partner on the other side.
“In future cases we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.”
** by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas 2022-06-24 **
- Griswold v. Connecticut is a 1965 decision that married couples have a right to privacy, including on decisions about contraception, and that a Connecticut law banning contraceptive access even for married couples was thus unconstitutional.
- Lawrence v. Texas was a 2003 decision striking down a Texas law banning sexual acts between people of the same sex.
- Obergefell v. Hodges was the 2015 decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
What all of these decisions have in common beyond that they gave people rights that Thomas does not want them to have is that the court’s decisions invoked “substantive due process,” a legal argument Thomas thinks is in itself illegitimate.

honestly i think it is a bit too big or not big enough, i feel like the black border around it should either be bigger or not at all.
at least it is what i think, but then i kinda to not care for tkl, i like my numpad too much.

To be honest, I don't think it looks that great; perhaps it would work better if it were thinner? It looks to be more of an accent this way, similar to the D65 blocker  :thumb:
