[GB] GMK Evil Dolch 😈 LIVE NOW!
« on: Wed, 22 July 2020, 12:17:51 »


Welcome to my GMK Evil Dolch Group Buy!


Hey everyone! S3LQ here, hoping everyone is doing good in this pandemic, I am at least holding up. I recently joined this hobby and think this is great! Love how welcoming the community is, and how helpful people are! So since I've basically been stuck here in my home in Norway, I thought why not combine my 6 years experience of designing and try to design a keycap set and even some deskmats!









Groupbuy will last from July 22nd to August 28th. Shipping is estimated to be Q2 2021






Where to buy?










Custom Coiled Cables with Aviators: Projectcables.com

GSK Velites Artisan will be raffled August 9th and open for 24hrs window!: Golden Star Keycap












Inspiration

I see a lot of designers bringing inspiration from a certain theme, for me, it was quite different. I do obviously have inspirations, but not inspirations I thought it would be cool to design the theme around. So rather I chose a name. I wanted to design a set called "Zoom", I thought it was a great name and I just kept on designing after the name. After posting the IC I got a lot of feedback about the name. And after reading through a lot of you guys' feedback, I figured a name change was the move. I wanted a fitting name for the colors and novelties. So I chose the name, Evil Dolch! 







[Core] Module






[Novelties] Module






[Space Bar] Module






[NorDeUk] Module





[Deskmat] Designs










[GSK Velites] Artisan

There will be a total of 10 GSK Velites made to match the Evil Dolch. These artisans will be raffled away on their instagram. These Artisans will be raffled away on August 9th for 24hrs window, so stay tuned!








[Custom] Cables

I've collaberated with Swiftcables and we've made 4 different custom coiled cable variants with colored aviators that's matching GMK Evil Dolch! We have 2 different paracords, Black paracord with black tech-flex and Red Camo paracord with carbon tech-flex. Both paracords will come with a coil and a colored aviator where the customer can decide between red or black! These cables will be sold through: Projectcables.com










[Colors] Used





Color Accurate renders by Walker

All renders are of the Iron 165









Renders by Oldcat

All renders are of the Think 6.5 V2.

Are R1 pipe/backslash and R4 angled bracked in mod colour still a thing?

I really think it's important to note that these renders are not a true representation of what this keyset is going to look like. It's upsetting to me that this GB went live with renders that are off from the actual colors.

I really hope you get these renders updated quickly to match what the colors should actually be.

Really love the colourway!

Do you have/planning to have a discord channel for updates?

I'm going to pass on the set, but have to get that swirl deskmat. That's my favorite deskmat I have seen anywhere and I am really not a big fan of red. I would love to see that design in multiple different colors. I would pick up one in nearly every color.

No worries! Appreciate you supporting me with a deskmat! I'm working on some monochrome deskmats, some similar ones. You could check out my Instagram for photos

I believe MyKeyboard.eu has deskmats names wrong way around. I emailed them but no reply or change yet.

Going to enter just because of the alphas 👍

Awesome I love Dolch so much. I'm rocking DSS Dolch now and wanted something GMK for my next build. I planed on just GMK Dolch but then I found this. I jumped on it @ Kona and I'm thinking about the spacebar kit. How much are the artisan raffle tickets going to be?
