Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus in China, factory  and business alike are extending their holidays by the gov's request. unfortunately this will hurt the progress of manufacturing
Keyreative except a 1 month delay (but that's an estimation).

I'm sure nobody will be troubled by a delay. The most important thing is that China gets the upper hand swiftly.

Yeah everything except GMK GB's seem to be affected at this point, so there's no use in complaining about it. Our little niche market isn't important enough to put people's lives in danger.

> The new ETA from Keyreative is 25 of April. This is a safer estimation from Keyreative and should usually be earlier than that.
Unfortunately the Chinese Year holidays + coronavirus lockdown shaved off 2 months of production time from them. They are moving as fast as possible. And they are also hiring to boost manufacturing capacity.

The vendors should have extras available once the GB sales are all sent out, just keep an eye out for them.

I'm late to the party but just wanted to say thanks for doing a second run in the first place.  I'll try to snag sets off the extras when they come out.

Zfrontier (which already shipped the packages for Asia) is actually trying to find a way to send more than 1 ton of keycaps to the vendors. That's the news I received last week, I keep you guys in touch.
Sorry for the lack of updates.

The manufacturer did not expect the Group Buy to run that well -> delay
Covid -> delay
Big unexpected shipment -> delay

They're doing their best to handle the situation though.

Not to complain about delays, they happen. I don't really mind. But how can the manufacturer not have anticipated how much they were going to ship after production?

Our shipment is in transit, but expect delays with a shipment like this. I would expect we will receive this very late May and be able to ship out in June.

Also, the M6-C's are completed, but stuck in China waiting for an open shipment slot. I would also expect to get this shipped out in late June.

Thanks for the update Mike! I'm still very excited to get this.  :thumb:
Current circumstances notwithstanding, I'm a bit concerned about all the KAT sets at this point. This was already a 6 month lead time before the world coughed and I have yet to put my fingers on this profile. I've got 4 others purchased so I'm going to hold off on KAT now until I have Milkshake in hand to play with. Yeah, I may kick myself later, but hey, I already have a key set to keyboard ratio of like 10:1 so....
Hope June delivery happens!

Just got my kits in today! First keycap buy, and oh my lord was it worth it. The caps are silky smooth, yet not glossy. The profile wasn't a big as a shock as I expected, I came from some cheapo OEM caps. Really happy all around. Weirdo alphas look great and add a nice amount of uniqueness to my bnard.


However, light bleed from the colored caps is pretty bad. While the white caps are completely opaque, the colored caps bleed quite a bit of light, showing all the posts and such. Not a big deal, as I run without backlight now anyways, but worth mentioning. In my case I had soldered through hole single color LEDs when I first built my board, so I'm pretty sure my PCB doesn't support per key LED customization. Maybe someone with a PCB with RGB LEDs can just locally disable the LEDs under wherever they have colored caps.

I've got some pretty misaligned legends for my top row, misaligned milks, and dots seem inconsistent (could also be the profile messing with my eyes).

Fwiw, all are offset to the right it seems.

This looks and feels incredible! The finish on these is the smoothest matte I've ever come across. And now I'm truly a KAT fan-boy. Man, if all KAT sets come out this nice....

FWIW, no alignment issues on my Fruits (hehe), Alphas, Mods, Ergo, Colevrak, Katakanas.

Disclaimer:  love this set and I am typing on them right now. The issue is with Keycreative and QC and not the designer of the set. Sorry for the potato pics

Alignment Issues:
https://imgur.com/MvNFqso


Unlike MT3, these are glaring and you don't need rulers or Photoshop to see them.

Damaged Keycaps:

These keycaps have not been used, or even mounted. They should not have been shipped.

Other annoyances:
https://imgur.com/ugY0VYn

Swirl marks on the stepped Caps (another user has shown mis-aligned stepped Caps)

https://imgur.com/hU6cZFC

Random marks on the keycap.


I feel the rushed manufacturing has ruined this otherwise good colour way.

Lets see how Keycreative and Big Cat deal with the QC issues and issue replacements. Drop had issued MT3 replacement caps, and those were much smaller issue.

To throw my 2 cents in, I also have some issues with my stepped Capslock.

Iíve got those swirl marks and it seems itís mis-aligned length wise?
PS: Ignore the left shift spacing. It's my switch.


Also a length issue with at least the yellow backspace.

Granted, maybe the length stuff is my keyboard? Iíll have to double check on my F key alignments.

Colorwise, itís fantastic. A nice, matte white and vibrant colors.

Edit: Looking it over, I think itís my slash key thatís a little too long rather than the yellow backspace.

Hey guys!

I was as surprised as you and would like to apologize for the legends alignment issues.

It's always tough to blame someone when stuff went bad but apparently the QC from the manufacturer has been rushed.
Some issues are unacceptable.

Keyreative will provide replacements keycaps.

We're working with vendors at this moment to find the best solution.
We might set up a Google Form for that. You can already start taking pics of your defective keycaps :thumb:
Sorry for the inconvenience...

I keep you all in touch. Not all the vendors are awake yet.
Thanks for understanding!
