I ordered two full blank sets (light gray & dark gray) and two red escape keys. I did not take pictures of the keys profile as they are the EXACT same as my Filco keys.

Left: Off-White Otaku Filco, Right: Light Gray WASD
These two are very very close in color and I had to really investigate them under light to tell them apart.  I'd say the Filco is more creamy than the WASD, and the WASD is an extremely light shade of gray.

Thought these two keycaps have the same profile from the outside, it appears as if the WASD keycap is actually thicker. Nice!

All modifiers or oversized keys have the measurement and row noted inside.
This key is "Row 1" and "2.25"

One small hiccup in my order. This key shows stress marks in the plastic on the front of the key.
Though, with the ability to order spare keycaps through the website, I'll order another and be good for go.


If anyone has any questions about these let me know.
I am thoroughly satisfied with my order from WASD keyboards and plan to do business with them again very soon.

Thanks WASD!

For the record, these are not "white" otaku keycaps. These are "light gray" blanks from the WASD keyboards site.  $39.99

Ripster, I don't have tools like the micrometer to confirm this, but I will compare all the home row keys of both sets to see if the WASD are generally thicker.

chuckading,

PM me your order number and which key that is (looks like R4 1x2) and I'll send a replacement. Sorry about that.

Thank you very much WASD for the offer, but it's just one key. I wanted some more keys from your site so I went ahead and placed an order and picked up a replacement as well.

Thanks again WASD!

btw, any chance WASD keyboards will someday stock a stepped caps lock key with a center mount?
