Both photos are of the same set. It’s different lighting.

Thanks! Already on the up and up.

Awesome! Just bought into Matcha and Gray sets. Looking forward to April!

I never said it did. They are their own company.

These caps look significantly thicker than GMK! Great job with the sharpness of legends too. Any comment on how smooth the texture feels compared to Leopold caps?

Thanks! Im pretty happy with the end result.

Texture: have a look at these macro shots.. There is virtually no texture, or at least its very fine.

Seems quite difficult to be thicker than gmk without interfering with the switch movement. Any measurements?

On the Grey and Black combo, is are the mods Grey on Black or WoB?  They seem WoB, but wasn't sure.

Alphas are Pantone cool gray 1C. So slightly darker than white.

How do the matcha greyish white compare to the WoB white?
I'm almost on board but I can't make up my mind about these two.
I got a pearl white ChikoryBLE incoming and I think both would do well on the board.

GMK sets are great. They are, in my humble opinion, the finest keycaps money can buy. But compatibility drives the cost up, limited font options, and they just dont fit everyone's budget.   
 
Last year I started working with a new factory in China (new to me at least, these guys have been making kits awhile now). I wanted to bring something to market that was different, affordable, fun, and high quality. After months of screwing around on Illustrator and getting samples back and forth allow me to present: 
 
TKC Katakana Cherry PBT

Just out of curiosity, how well is this gb going for you so far? I hope that it's going well enough for future drops.

Just want to point out again, in the Matcha set, as the top row 1-unit backslash cap (circled in red) is there for the HHKB style layout, like the keyboard examples below, it should be of the same color as the alpha:

Please kindly make this change for manufacturing.


Other than this one, this GB looks totally fantastic!

Thanks for pointing that out, ill get it squared away as soon as this flu subsides.

Hope the correction of that backslash key color is already in progress
And your flu has recovered I hope! :)

Hey everyone. As you may have heard we fell a bit short of MOQ. These sets are based on 2 base colors, grey and white. Each have a pretty steep MOQ. One has to go. I tried everything to get them to drop MOQ, get proxies to buy extras, buy extras myself: Cant make it happen. Either grey or white has to go.

If we drop the white base: BoW will be cancelled. WoB will use grey base. Other kits remain unchanged.
If we drop the grey base: Grey will be cancelled. Black & Grey will be come Black & White, Matcha will use white alphas. Other kits remain unchanged.

Please place your vote on this survey and help us to decide what we will do. I will leave the form open for 48 hours. At that point a decision will be made, whichever kit is cancelled buyers will be emailed with a choice to cancel or change their order, and we will reopen the buy for a few days to let others join in since I pulled the plug on white a bit early.

Thanks for your vote and your patience!

May I ask what's the most popular set? To uh, mentally prepare myself for the outcome.

Grey base has been cancelled based on survey results.

Grey set cancelled.
Grey / Black is now White / Black.
Matcha will now have white alphas instead of grey.

White kits remain unchanged.

I will be emailing everyone affected next week to give them the option to change their order or cancel for a refund.

Buy is also reopened until Friday next week.

This keycap set wasn't even on my radar till I got the survey email late last week. 
I need to save money, I certainly shouldn't be buying any sets right now but.... I just so happen to have the perfect board for that Matcha set so....   yeah.  I'm in.  ;)

I was unfortunately really looking forward to Black on Grey, but not BoW at all. Do I ask directly mykeyboard.eu for a refund or do I wait for an incoming mail from you?

Proxy sales will be handled by the proxies. Youd have to contact them directly.

Yes I was interested in this too. I mailed mykeyboard.eu yesterday, and they said they will get infos  from thekeycompany. That should have happened yesterday. So I hope they will refund the money soon.

I might have missed it somewhere but what happens to WoB then? The base changes to WoGrey?

Edit: I did miss it, Grey was cancelled so WoB remains unchanged.

Yes, only white base sets were put to production. BoW, WoB are unchanged. Grey was cancelled, Matcha and Grey/Black are now using white alphas. I sent an email to everyone who joined for a grey base set to let them know of the changes.

Estimated delivery is 4-6 weeks from today.

No quality issues. Logistics. Took almost 6 weeks to get payment to the factory because the transfer kept bouncing back. In the meantime they got some large orders. Been a pain in my butt! Sorry for the delays and lack of updates here. All updates are always available on our Discord server.
