For those who don't know the character on the Rama artisan, I just wanted to let you know how amazing this really is. You could argue that it is one of the most fundamental and important characters of Asian history and philosophy. 
   

The history behind this character is very long and complicated, and there is so much to go into that you could keep reading books about it's meaning for years.   
It originates (maybe) from the Dao De Jing by Lao-Tzu, and represents an interpretation of the dao, the underlying force that controls and orders everything in the physical and energetic universe. You could compare it to what the greeks called Logos, and in India it's known as Dharma. It is the basic idea in daoism, a philosophy and religion with the objective to live in harmony with the dao. 

It's a hugely important character that has shaped and influenced many of the great eastern philosophies we know today, and I was so happy to see it find its way to mechanical keyboard community :)

Bought the

Base +
Samurai +
Dishonor +
Deskmat +
Cable +
Stabs +
Artisan 道
(The very reason I love this set! Also coz of the color scheme...
I live in Japan and my colleagues are going to lose their shi*!...  :eek:
In 2021...  :rolleyes: But it's definitely worth the wait!)

I'm thinking of getting the stabs too... But shipping from novel keys to Japan just for the stabs is a bit extreme...  :p

EDIT: Got the stabs too! Paid up the shipping and sitting at home waiting.  ^-^

Also how do I get the Artisan Medievals? I'm confused...  ;D

Also, hoping and waiting for CanonKeys to do their next run of Satisfaction 75.  ;D

End game worthy?

I have asked this question along with the odds of the switches still being produced if they are short of the MQO, No answer yet. I guess we will find out in a few short days.
