[GB] GMK Fuji | March 15th - April 15th
« on: Fri, 12 March 2021, 21:11:51 »
Discord for updates: https://discord.gg/eGnjxGx

Hello everyone, welcome to the GB for GMK Fuji.



When?
GB March 15th - April 15th. Estimated shipping Q1 2022.

Where?
USA: Cannon Keys
Canada: Deskhero
Europe: MyKeyboard
UK: Proto[Typist]
China: Zfrontier
Asia: Zfrontier EN
South Korea: Swagkeys
SEA: Monokei
Oceania: Daily Clack

What?
Inspired by the colours and landscape surrounding the legendary mountain, this set brings a stylish look to your keyboard. The set features dark blue Latin and Katakana legends on white alphas, with lighter blue-grey mods. The pink of the accents resemble the iconic sakura.

Special thanks to BK over the past months for helping me develop this idea.

Without further ado, here are the kits - all renders done by the talented pikku-allu.

Katakana Base:
Pretty straightforward. Provides the compatibility you need for most layouts, while keeping it as trimmed down as possible. Katakana sublegends are there as an homage to the inspiration of the set.



Latin Base:
Pretty straightforward. Provides the compatibility you need for most layouts, while keeping it as trimmed down as possible. For those that prefer a cleaner, sublegendless look.



Addition:
To cover TGR Alice-like layouts and some more niche layouts that weren't in the base kit, as well as giving more legend options. Basic 40s compatibility also included.



Novelties:
Made in collaboration with Sour, to add a bit more personality to your board.



International:
Your standard kit for European layouts - support for British, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and German keyboards.



Sakura:
Accent spacebars, for an extra splash of colour.



Collaborations:
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.

Mount:





Pagoda:





With this set I have again collaborated with the talented Sour for deskmats. I hope you like them all as much as I do:

Landscape:



Paper:



Sakura:



Weave:



And last but not least, some board renders:

TGR Jane V2 CE:





Finder Works Hyphen:







Cannon Keys Satisfaction 75:







Colours:
Comparison between similar sets, with BoW and WoB for reference. Renders have been matched to physical RAL references. Come colour matching, there may be slight variances in the RAL values for the purpose of matching renders and getting you all what you expect ;)

White - RAL 260 90 05
Legend - RAL 260 30 15
Mod - RAL 260 60 15
Pink - RAL 330 85 15



Pricing:



Much love to Sour and pikku-allu especially for all your hard work - you two have truly gone above and beyond to make this project what it is. Also ilikerustoo for the early support and all the feedback.

Also many thanks to biip for giving permission to use his katakana moulds for this project.

Picked mine on day1 already, beautiful set.

Good to see the numbers for RAMA mount cap. Seems we all agree that one looks stunning and is a must buy.

960+ RAMA key ! It's almost 3/4 of katana + latin bases.
Even the number for Novelties is impressive.

Clearly in for this GB, that's a lovely combination of colors and designs.
