Hey. this is super close to GMK Demon Sword as well as pretty close in GB dates as well it might end up hurting both of our sets. Feel free to PM me on discords if want to discuss anything

lol how is this similar in any way

I agree. This is no way similar to demon sword. Color scheme and theme and manu are completely different.

Your base kit is missing R2 PgUp, R3 PgDn keys. They are required for 65%/75% layouts. Also, the R4 End key included in the kit is useless without them.

There's also not much point in including UK keys if they aren't going to have Russian sublegends. Currently, if you opt to use the UK keys, you end up with missing Cyrillic letters. Since molds for UK keys with Russian sublegends likely don't exist, I suggest dropping them and going back to basic 4-key ISO support (ISO Enter, 1.25u Shift, R3 \|, R4 <>).

A few other keys that can't be used for anything and should be removed:
  • both of the 1.75u spacekeys (they require the set to have 40s support)
  • second R4 1.25u Fn
  • second R4 1u Fn
  • second R4 1u Ctrl
  • second R4 1u Alt
  • third and fourth R4 1u Super (gotta say this is the first time I've ever seen four of the same key in a kit)
Also, Windows keys are almost universally hated/unused, so they may not be worth including either.

All in all, the kitting used to be a lot better before the update. I suggest reverting back to it. You can add the tripleshot Russian sublegends if you really want to, but keep in mind that JTK's Cyrillic molds are awfully misshapen and are a far cry from what Cyrillic lettering actually looks like.

Wow thanks for the long explanation. Still in the process of adding / removing keys. If you don't mind, i would like to run the next iteration of the base kit by you? you can find me on the discord link and pm me from there. Thanks my dude.

Don't know if it's too late but can you move standard red and blue spacebars to base kit? See classic FC for reference

I'm confused. Sometimes people go bonkers over the smallest similarities between sets, but this is somehow fine. I don't care, it's a good set.

Love this set, but lead time seems optimistic given i have other JTK sets on order for more than 1 year now...
