Esc - 160

Worry not, as nice looking as those caps are, I'm not going to bid on them.

Dat Esc though, it's like mold.  At first, I was all "It's an ESC key, whatevs." Now, I dig the crap out of it.

I predicted this!


It is a very nice set, undeniable, but for it to go that high is a little crazy.

I predict it'll end up somewhere right below or at 500 bucks. Buyer will take a loss.

I'm guessing it was the scarface set.

Wow, alum caps, that definitely didnt come cheap.

I was thinking, on the contrary, maybe we can get asura to make a set of full silver caps :D

THAT, would be definitely above 500 :D

Italian G81 pbt version are easiest to find, you can keep eye out on ebay.it search for "olivetti tastiera" as thats where they come up on the most. But keep in mind ISO and large key have stab clip built in so can't use them with Cherry stabilizer on MX.

Ah yes forgot to mention that those larger keys requires modding before you can use it on a modern keyboard
