Hello everyone, I'm Daniel Mitchell, introducing a new Awekeys Metal Keycap Set
that I just wanted to make: The Copper Eagle.

 Inspired by the awe-inspring copper eagle statuea symbol renowned for its embodiment of
strength, freedom, and vision. I really admire the glossy surface of copper and would love to
create a set of keycaps with a copper texture for the Copper Eagle.




-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Awekeys is a brand specializing in the production of metal keycaps, and they have several collaborations
with Drop, KeebsForAll, ClickClack and many trusted regional vendors and received optimisitc feedback.

Taking the initiative, I contacted Awekeys to inquire if they'd be interested in helping me create metal keycaps
for the Copper Eagle. Their response was positive, expressing a genuine appreciation for the Copper Eagle concept.
Thus, our collaboration was born, fueled by their expertise and shared enthusiasm for bringing the Copper Eagle
to life through our joint efforts.

This design is very interesting indeed!

Why do you have the 7u kit separately? And not as part of base kit?

What's the moq that you need to achieve to reach that price of 200$?

The Copper Eagle concept is truly intriguing, and I'm loving the idea of copper-textured keycaps.Also, could you shed some light on the minimum order quantity required to kick off this exciting project?

Looking forward to more updates and details! :thumb:

Awekeys offers Blanks (without Legends) for all colorways as well as the so-called special edition like gold, silver, satin gold, and titantium.
CHECK OUT their page https://awekeys.com/products/fullmetalkeycapsset
I pledged on the Titanium version on the Kickstarter. Obviously this COPPER version is a new released  :)

Would it be possible to have the Super keys use Super legends instead of Win?

Thank you for your feedback! We're glad you find the design interesting. As for the 7u kit, we offer it separately because it caters to a specific group of users who prefer that particular layout. By offering it separately, we can provide more flexibility to our customers and allow them to choose the kit that best suits their needs.

Can you tell us the weight of a 1U keycap for each row?  How thick is the side wall?

I see you have an Iso enter, but if you switch to that you will be missing a key FIY. For the actual support.

To protect against discoloration, awekeys tell me that they choose special coating.
Also regular cleaning will help prevent discoloration.

Whilst a niche set - this looks lovely. I can imagine that on a maroon coloured board, this would look really nice. Interested to see what coating is being used/what discolouration may look like
