Nice, may be interested.  Shame there aren't any international legends though

You did mention you are a fan of correct legends, so I'd kindly request having the correct icons on the numpad ("/" and "*"), since those are the characters that are displayed on screen when pressing those.

Yesn't. I used to agree with that, but I changed my mind. If you went by what keys display on the screen when you are in notepad and you press on them, then yes those should be * and /. However that would also qualify them as alphas, in which case on dual-tone sets like Oblivion or Space Cadet, those would need to be alpha colored, and we don't do that. They are not alphas, for example if you have calc.exe opened and you press those keys, they send an action to the program, which is behavior more in line with modifiers.

I also have both Return and Enter in my keysets now because one key is for when writing text and wanting to move to the beginning of next line (return carriage) while the other (on the numpad) enters an equation for processing, even though both do the same when you have notepad open.

Appreciate the answer, but I think it's wrong. The keycode that is sent is / and *. By your logic nothing is an alpha since it can be interpreted by software differently. For instance, pressing the [ key on my keyboard displays ä.

Even ignoring that, having / and * is more "old school" and in line with the theme of the set.

Woosh man, stop pressuring the designer with your agenda. He gave you his reasoning.

It's up now.

Oblotsky/Kono: A+ job on the pricing. Others have base kits at this price without new key design.

Did you hear negative tone with my comment? I was just replying with my opinion. That's better than not contributing to the discussion by being sour and seeing conflict everywhere.

On a more positive note, holy hell the pricing. How? With 35 new moulds... wow.
