Can't wait, hoping to get Assembly and a deskmat off DeskHero.

KW Artisan Pricing is changing a bit because its all going to be made in Austria instead of some cheap place. Seems to be that people have had enough of china QC and manufacturing after the virus  :))

That will confirm - Otherwise Deskmat pricing will probably be like all other deskmats you see, for us it looks to be around 20 EUR

The set looks pretty good. However, I'm not a fan of the fact that CTRL on the left side of the set is green, while it is blue on the right side of the board.
There is no such thing as "too much orange."

for visual "symmetry" it looks off without the blue ctrl on the right side.

Pardon my ignorance - Is this set still available for purchase? I'm would like the base kit + one of the mats. I already filled up the google form linked in this thread. Is there anything else I need to do?

Group buy starts in a month. The form is the interest check.

This is some good news, finally I can support my local businesses! Another reason to buy Artisans for me.

I guess? I kind of see your point when looking at the bottom row with 1.25u mods, but when looking at the 1.5u 1u bottom row, there is a lack of symmetry due to having green on only one side

I think it'd be nice to have the option for a green 1.5 u key for both sides

For reference, I'd be referring to this type of layout:

https://i.imgur.com/Z2XsA0q.jpg

It'd be missing green on the right side. I can understand the layout when using 1.25 mods, because you maintain the order of the colors from the spacebar towards the outside by placing the colors as you've done. However, with 1.5u bottom row mods, there would be a lack of symmetry.

the upcoming group buy for this set has been listed on https://www.deskhero.ca/collections/group-buys-upcoming/products/gmk-nord

however, every option is crossed out so i can't check prices for other kits apart from base (CA$190), could i have deskhero prices for the other kits?

I'm not sure what you mean by "the rest of the other sets", but looking through the last few GMK sets I purchased (Dark, Olivia++, 8008, Vaporwave, Dots), the main kit is definitely in the same price range as those.

I agree with pleasega, the other sets you mention have a numpad included in the base kit, but Nord is around $130 USD without.
Looking online, Olivia++ was $110 for the base kit, 8008 $130, Vaporwave $125, and Dots $135. Only Dark was $120 for a base kit not including a numpad. With base + numpad, Nord is looking to run at $165.  :(

+1 for the pricing.

Oblivion and Dracula are similar looking sets. They both included a numpad + extra keys at the same price point. I wonder what the Monokai set will be priced at.

I don't have any experience with them, but no one replied to me when I had a similar question earlier in the thread. They have a huge queue for in-stock items. Thst doesn't bode well for what will probably be a very popular set.

I've had experience with mkultra awhile back ago. When I first ordered from him in the summer of 2019, delivery was quick. But I think his business increased for his foam products so he has been having a hard time keeping up. Especially earlier this year when he had problems with his laser cutter. I don't remember all the details, but he tried to get an industrial laser cutter and it had issues and his normal one broke down. He definitely has a queue. Although for some common ones (ie 60% foams), I read some where that delivery times may be faster as he has some inventory.

I think he was supposed to provide foam for Iron 165 but didn't have production to deliver. I would say he is a nice guy and tries his best. Hopefully key cap group buys work out ok with him as keycaps are more of a logistical issue of delivery versus a production issue.

I can’t speak for his custom or made-to-order times but I recently ordered parts and foam for a Boardwalk and got it in 12 days.
