Is it possible to include a R1 1u back key as well please? For those who spilt their backspaces.

I will review all the key requests and update the forum for any updates once all the feedback is in, thanks for the info, I have noticed that no other sets including basic ortho/40s support have this, can you use another guy in its place? Possibly "-" and "delete"?
 ;D ;D

Thank you. Very few kits in the past has this key. Mostly those with a large base kit. For example Deep space, carbon, Dracula has this key. It would be great to have it. Regardless I will go for this set. Irresistible copper.

Ok couple of things here

Firstly - love the set, cant wait to see more renders.

Secondly, please dont change the R3 #~ to \|. Boards look terrible with two of the same key on. I see no reason to change from the standard R3 #~ and R4 |\ which we have seen in most base kits recently, but if you must change it then please change the R4 key to the >< key seen in Nines for example. The R3 |\ key only supports US ISO which is the lowest denominator for the lowest layout adoption.

Tbh, I rarely ask for full UK ISO unless I really love a set; and I'd love that to be here but I can understand the challenge against it.

Love how this came together, from the initial design to your taking feedback, and the very cool and thoughtful novelties. I only noticed you were Canadian when I saw that you had a Canadian vendor--I'm in Newfoundland (technically Labrador currently) myself--look forward to buying all three kits as well as a deskmat, funding-willing. Any chance you'll go all in with a custom cable as well? I'm a steampunk guy so this set is pushing all of my buttons... give me ALL THE THINGS to buy. LOL

Thanks its been a great journey. Working on a cable option to so stay tuned to the IC, updates including other surprises will be coming!! Great to see a fellow Canadian in the hobby, and appreciate your enthusiasm for the set!!  :thumb:

Firstly thank you so much!! Great to hear you love the set, I am humbled.  More renders are coming as soon as I can get them!

Secondly, thanks for this, I have updated the main page base kit note and will keep the R3 #~, there is a lot of information on the site and differing opinions on what should represent minimum physical ISO, I am glad you spoke up and let me know your thoughts.

I will look into all things ISO, I am trying to keep the base kit price down as much as I can so cant promise full UK ISO but I can certainly investigate further.

This explanation of the backslash-pipe key was recently mentioned in another IC - http://www.farah.cl/Keyboardery/Why-Do-Keycap-Sets-have-so-many-Copies-of-the-Backslash-Pipe-Key/
