ooohhh sublegend the u and n keys. That would be cool!

Edit: or..... a 9s key  ;D

Ohhh.. Something like this? (Attachment Link)

Yes, but I think he/she meant two separate keys with sublegends - so U with 9 sublegend and N with a 9 sublegend, but I could be mistaken. Not sure if GMK is allowing one or two novelty keys though.

Yeah I had in mind a u or n key with a 9 sub legend. Unfortunately, it's not possible to do both with only one novelty but I was just spit balling anyway.
Also I am a dude, for anyone interested lol.

Personally, I would prefer a single "IX" on the top left of the keycap for a novelty, but I also like the look of the fraction.

Hi!

So, I tested out some ideas - and unfortunately the single IX just doesn't look good. I imagined that it would look good, but it just didn't translate well from my head and onto a keycap. Instead, I went for the IX/IX design and added it to the basekit:


For people curious about single IX and why I didn't go with it:


We tried different scaling, different thickness etc - but it just wasn't happening. :/

Thanks for all the feedback!

I imagine the pre-orders up on kono (assuming you mean these), will be shipped together with the GB Nines. For kono, they have to deal with customs and other stuff, so it might be a bit later than mykeyboard or kbdfans - but yeah early September is the goal for the US. Mid/Late August is the expected timeline for EU.

Looking to buy a set once they ship out
Once a set shines, it is truly yours. It is then your job to nurture it and care for it.
Love it until it blossoms into the beautiful fully and evenly shined set it has always wanted to be since it saw a shined set on Instagram under the hashtag #perfection.
Support it and maintain it until it will grow into itself and become one with itself. Then you can truly enjoy the typing experience
Sincerely,

We're heading in to production now and kit has been confirmed (a bit delayed due to the added novelty).

Expected shipment out from GMK is said to be early september - so not far off from the first expected time frame!

Cool!

This morning I reviewed the IC thread. Have you put any thought to go do a variant with icon keycaps in a next set?


(while we're at this, I'd love to see an "all icons!" set that is actually... all icons — I intend to do exactly this with Ellipse's F77 repro... we shall see how good... or not... it looks)

Artisans are just about to be made by salvun, and if I know him right, the process might be put up on his Instagram stories for us to follow! As for the spots, I emailed out and got no replies for some, so those will be reraffled. I'll work on the form as soon as I get to a pc later today!

Update on my post above,

I didn't create a new raffle yet because I think all artisans are accounted for. If that is not the case, we will raffle away whatever is left after the keyset has shipped.

If konos extras are sold out, then I am sorry to say that you'll not be able to purchase through them anymore. Kbdfans will have extras, so your best bet is to wait for those to open up (usually when the Keyset has shipped to them). Besides that, the aftermarket would be the way to get it.

Artisan update, please read and help me decide:






So the artisans are machined and anodized, they only need to be enamel infilled now to be complete. HOWEVER...

There are some extras that I didn't account for (Salvun made a couple of extras incase some messed up), but they all came out beautifully.
The question now: What do I do with the extras? There were originally 10 raffle spots, and I would feel bad to sell the extras which would make the 10 raffle winners feel "less exclusive". At the same time, it would be a waste to see them waste away...

If any raffle spot winner would not like there to be more than 10 artisans in circulation, please let me know (in private is OK), otherwise I am thinking of 3 options:
1. Raffle away extras
2. Sell extras FCFS
3. Do nothing

Let me know your ideas on this problem we are facing!

To do what is best?

 I would hate to be that guy who participated because knowing this is an extremely rare, one of a kind artisan with only 10 ever produced... And then realized that more were produced and sold. Wouldn't you be angry? I'd be very unhappy.

Emir, Stick to your original words and do not let me or anyone obtain one of those extras. It's ethics at this point.

He says there's only "a couple" and clearly has asked the participants for their input.

 If we say a couple is two, then is 1 of 12 any less special than 1 of 10? Furthermore, 2 have very publicly said to go for it. Emir has also given other participants the ability to walk away of they feel slighted. Clearly he's not here to double down and make a ton of of profit. I don't understand your "ethics" remark.. clearly he's sensitive to this.
Lastly. It's an artisan cap...
