Hello everyone!

I hope you and your loved ones are all doing fine - please stay safe out there and wear a mask  :cool:

First of all, thanks for all the support thus far, I really appreciate it!

I wanted to take the time to say that I have been upgrading kits left and right and I hope you'll like it. All kits in the OP are updated so I'll let you go check that instead of posting a ton of images here, but I wanted to mention a couple of changes:

* Updated Ortho kits based off of feedback received from ortho users;
* Updated 40s kits based off of feedback received from 40s users;
* Added the last couple of Alphas, you now have the choice between
    ※ Latin
    ※ Hiragana
    ※ Hangul
    ※ Zhuyin
    ※ Cyrilllic
    ※ Arabic
* Added a R4 Pause key in the numpad kits for OG-1800 boards

I will be sending the kits for quoting today and will try to get the prices as soon as possible. In the meantime, I'm glad to announce the final list of vendors for this set:



I wanted to thank them all to accept to work on this despite the huge number of kits I'm offering!

Love the numerous kit options that can only work because this is KAT.
Looking forward to Sept.

The new renders look great!  Definitely interested in the hiragana and zhuyin kits.  Slightly disappointed that the JIS kit fell through the cracks as I would have loved to have got standard Roman alphas as well, but thanks anyway for taking the time to consider it. I know you were juggling a lot of kits!  Maybe next time.

So these will all be main alphas (not -sub)? I would like to see qwerty main and -sub different alphas but understand the desire to have each typeface stand out. I need a good solid WoB and BoW set. We'll see how this turns out. gl

All alt alphas are monolegends. Sublegends do not work as well on spherical top keycaps (such as KAT) as they do on cylindrical ones (such as Cherry).

To add to what Konstantin said, I much prefer the style of mono legends than sublegends :) I hope you'll still like the set :)

I'm not sure I follow you ^^ ISO keys are in the ISO kits (French, ISO, North, South) - are you referring to something else?

Ah, no, that won't happen. the idea behind the way KAT kits work is that you can create small, inexpensive, kits and even if only one is sold, if the global MOQ is met, everything will be made so you don't have to be afraid a particular ISO kit won't be made, everything will be ;)

This set seems to have absolutely everything. Any chance, for a monochrome set, you could add mono-legends to the numbers and special characters?
