I dunno. At this point I'd prefer Salvun with what he's putting out.
Iím in favour of Salvun just because his instagram stories are so in depth, weíd get to see them being made :P

Thats a good idea, their design profile would most likely suit the design better.
I started typing on a Sinclair Spectrum 'human flesh' keyboard in 1980 and I never stopped.

Has anyone ever accidentally scratched/dented an e-white board? Obviously, donít damage your stuff, but how does scratch resistance and visibility of damage compare to, say, a dark anodized aluminum? The only e-white I have experience with is my Rama Mizu e-white cap. The idea of an e-white board is growing on me, but Iím a little hesitant. I donít really understand the finishing process.

Would love to see the smith & rune logo somewhere on the front, even if subtle. I really want that extra designer detail like the iron165 if you would consider it :)

So for a logo and f13, our idea is to include an artisan anodized and matched to the color of the top case for a couple reasons.
Not a lot of keycaps sets cover f13, this way it blends right into the case and doesnít stand out like a sore thumb. Second, if you don't like branding cause I know there are TKL purist you can remove it all together. And lastly, if you do have a F13 keyset you can simply use F13 key and move it to escape or another location if you like the logo.

We liked the idea of people being able to reuse the badge or extra badges purchased with the Iron165 but couldnít find a good fit for it on the board.

Absolutely brilliant idea. Logo if you want one, no logo if you don't.

I hope I am quick enough to snag one.

Well the iron165 was 475USD so i wouldnt be surprised if this was around 650USD.

I believe the 180 weighs less, so potentially around the same price hopefully. Even if it did weigh more, I couldn't see it going over $599.

That is what i thought until i saw Infinitum's price. IMHO 500-550 would be a good price for Iron180 but i wouldnt be surprised if its more.

I would never joke about this color. Buy away!

And to everyone else, we should be ordering protos soon as Iron165 will be shipping from manu soon. Once we get in hand and inspect, weíll have color decisions, pricing and vendors to announce.

Thanks for the support!!

The Infinitum is also radically overpriced for what you're getting.

I believe the 180 weighs less, so potentially around the same price hopefully. Even if it did weigh more, I couldn't see it going over $599.

Really comes down to how many parts there are to machine. I'd imagine slightly more, 5-550.

We are currently working on fulfillment of Iron165. After this is complete we will be ordering prototypes of case and PCB of the Iron180. Quotes have been received with about 1 month leadtime on them. Once protos are received we will see if any changes need to be made, discuss with vendors on colors, quantity, pricing and best GB date.

Just to provide context for others: Infinitum will cost $635, in large part because it ships with a mirror-finish stainless steel weight.

I'm not working with the Smith & Rune team, but that price is almost certainly a ceiling for the price of this board.

Is there a possibility of getting the F13 artisan in a different finish from the top case? I really love the look of the badges on the 165 and I think it'd be great if I could get a dark colored case with like a brass or aluminum looking F13 keycap (maybe to match the weight or something). Just an idea!

How many are there on sale?


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

At least as many as the Iron165 (which was 200, divided 100/50/50 across USA/EU/APAC respectively).  However we might try to talk vendors into a bit more!

Please do make more. You will sell them all, and you know it.

Logistics especially because of the effects of the pandemic on international shipping, particularly out of China.

Iron165 has still not completed fulfillment, so I wouldnít expect substantial updates before then.

Hoping to do a blank set. I've seen group buys in the past for blank GMK keycaps. Although bleached would have also been nice for this. I'll have to do a post looking for blank ones someday.
