Hope you're all well. Happy to finally be able to show you all something that's been in the works for a little bit now:

RAMA WORKS x GMK Fuji

Anodised aluminium with enamel infill. All colours will be matched to the approved GMK samples. Both icons designed by my talented friend Sour.

Hope you’ve all been having a good day. Made some kit changes (and they’ve been updated in the OP).

Katakana base kit:
- sublegends changed slightly - biip has kindly given permission to use his katakana moulds for this project (see: GMK Honor, GMK Bushido, GMK Bentō R2)


Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but I assume this means the Katakanas are staying.
If that is the case, would you consider a Hiragana only kit? (similar to what Hanami Dango did for example, so just Hiraganas as the only legend).

Katakanas are indeed staying. Won't be doing a Hiragana only kit here, sorry.
that or a katakana only kit and i'm in i don't like sublegends

You do realize there's an alternate latin base kit, right...?

I really like the muted colors of this set. The deskmats are also sick! Definitely considering this set.

As a Japanese, I do like the overall design of the set.
However, the "Pagoda" artisan is very Chinese-looking and it would be great if you could consider revising it.

I like this set. Any chance katakana legends could be included in the international kit as well? Would match the katakana base set nicely.

Fun idea, and in an ideal world where everything reaches MOQ it would be done. However, new moulds are expensive and with International perhaps requiring vendor buyout splitting those numbers over two kits / making that one kit far more pricey isn't a possibility.

Katakana base kit:
- sublegends changed slightly - biip has kindly given permission to use his katakana moulds for this project (see: GMK Honor, GMK Bushido, GMK Bentō R2)
- added R3 1.75 Control

Latin base kit:
- added R3 1.75 Control

Addition kit:
- added R2 1.75 Backspace
- added R3 1.50 Enter
- added R3 1.75 stepped Control
- removed R3 1.75 Control

Novelties kit:
- added R1 1.00 sakura novelty

International kit:
- R1 ´` tertiary legend changed from ¦ to |

Sakura kit:
- removed 1.00 spacebars

More announcements to be made soon.

Text mod "Control" doesn't work if the other mods are icons, it just looks out of place. Could you consider to changing it to ^ ? Someone made a visual comparison https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=107383.msg2930291#msg2930291

text mod control R3 works, imo, as it ties with R4 text (alpha) mods. at some point I’d like to see a set with R3 code or system (instead of control or, rarely, function) to differentiate from R4 and indicate ‘layers’ but i’m not holding my breath.

I somewhat share that sentiment in that as a Mac user I would like to include a kit with R3 Command (full 1.75 + stepped 1.75) in one of my future sets. Function is a nice halfway point between Control and an OS key but I didn't think I could justify adding it here

I don't know how I hadn't found this till now but I'm a fan though I defo have some queries.


1: Any chance of an accent Esc key in the addition kit? As it is there are no R2 Novelties so its kind of disappointing knowing I wouldn't be able to have any variation on the Esc key, this is also something I'd like to see with alot of the other keys in the addition kit but its understandable not wanting to make it too big due to pricing.
2: I agree with some other users that the arrow keys seem a better fit for the Sakura kit moreso than the Novelties kit or even the base kit because especially as a 40's user, its a pain to have to buy an entire kit when all I really want from it is the arrow keys while half the others don't even fit onto boards.
3: I also agree with users pointing out the lack of a Fuji Novelty but equally the other novelties seem kind of lackluster in the amount of designs, with only identical novelties available for R3 and R4 (not including arrow keys) with no change in novelty design or colour, and currently no novelties for R2 other than part of an ISO space, I feel like some extra variety here would make it far more appealing.

Looking forward to seeing this set rip my wallet apart because damn those colours are nice.  ;D

I do agree with you on some of those and have already expressed my opinion previously.
The novelties are pretty lackluster and lack variety, at least we managed to get a Pink Escape novelty.
Maybe they could have been improved if there had been more time between IC and GB.

Don't get me wrong I really like the set and I will go pretty much all in on it.
I will just ignore the fact that it's called Fuji considering some choices like the Katakanas and Mt.Fuji only being present on a Rama and a Mat.

Any way to get Õ and ˇ~ keys into the international kit to support EST language layout as well? I've never seen them in GMK kits, only in KAT so far. Would love to see a GMK set offer full support.
