Fantastic! Thank you.

I have to say this has now become the kit I look forward to most. I'm getting alphas + colevrak, katakanas and two ortho kits. Can't wait to try out KAT.

yes! just a quick question for ergo / ortho. are the 2u R4s convex?

edit:
also (for ergo), would it be possible to offer a few 1.5 blank keys?
or a few 1.5 dots as an addition to the dots pack?

for example, i use {} in the middle position, but I don't need exact legends.

Ortho already has two 1.5u blanks. Or do you mean ergo?

Definitely the next keyset I'm going to pick up! Thinking about mixing Weirdo alphas and International kit. But I'm afraid it'll look kind of bad. Weirdo alphas are already so out there that maybe it will work anyway. Undecided!  :))

Also wish there was a pinapple in the fruits kit, possibly orange colored, but what is there is already great!

Not convex.
For which rows would extra keycaps be necessary?

2*2u convex would be nice for Boardwalk.

Suggestions are welcome :thumb:

My suggestion would also be to include some blank (or maybe dots/fruits) R1/R2/R3/R4 1.5u keys, the vertical ones too.
I also think a vertical 2u DEL key would be nice. It is pretty common to have enter/space/delete/backspace on vertical 2u.

Maybe some ergo specific keys? For example ⟲ and ❐ for layer switching. Those are from ergodox-ez configurator.

From my personal setup (but I think these are also somewhat common, they try to mimic ansi keyboard) I would like to suggest:
* 1.5u R1 += and -_ keys
* 1.5u R2 [{ and }] keys
* 1.5u R3 '" key

I'll post more suggestions if anything comes to my mind.

Thanks for ergo btw!

I just need r2 for the middle vertical ones(I think those are r2). But r1 and r3 might be helpful to some. There are lots of 1.5 r4 in other kits.

Yes, sorry, 1u. R1 1u is in the base kit. Would love a R2 1u one.

Since the keys are printed, could it be argued that Ergo could exist in both printed and blank versions, with a combined MOQ since the number of keys molded would be combined?

Just wanted to chime in again to say thank you for being so responsive to requests! After seeing the ergo set come through, and passing along the new Ortho set mock to my friend, we're both in for a few sets! Can't wait for the GB!

Potential update:

  • Pipe added in Ortho kit
  • a few extras added in Ergo kit





Since the legends are kinda abstract, I'm not sure adding blanks into Ergo kit would be that helpful.
Also, the 2u Del and Backspace are very similar. I might wanna get rid of one of those.

Getting rid of part of the 2u backspace and delete is fine for me. Would you consider adding vertical 1.5u backspace and delete instead ?

Very happy to see an international kit in with low MOQ, hoping for some competetive prices.
Is there any experience with this manufacturer in regards to shipping time once the GB is over?
Personally would love to see a yellow r1 1u delete in the specialities kit, so that the accents can be spaced out a little more on an hhkb layout board.

The new additions in Ergo work for me. I'd like to keep the 2u keys as is but can make it work either way. What ever is needed to keep pricing reasonable.  :thumb:

That would be true assuming that you only bind function/mod keys to those caps.
But that would not work for ascii keys i guess.

Also, the 2u Del and Backspace are very similar. I might wanna get rid of one of those.

Leave one white and one yellow?


What if you move the backspace + white/colored blanks + maybe some others to a "ergo extras" kit?
