Looks beautiful! If I actually modded switches myself instead of getting others to do it for me I would totally buy this!

Edit: Nevermind, I didn't realize the red one was called brass limited.

Brass was over the top for me and unnecessarily heavy. standard wasnít enough so I went with Limited Edition.

@ilouis_07, anyone replying to support emails?

I ordered through ilumkb.com, which includes free China EMS shipping, right? I made payment for normal mail, which you might have to refund me. Order #1105

Anyways, do reply to your support email please. Thank you!

Did all of the invoices for the brass unit go out? I filled out the form a few days ago but haven't received an invoice, and want to make sure I'm not missing the GB.

I filled it out as well, but haven't gotten the invoice. I imagine he won't send them until he's ready to send the order off to the manufacturer.

Actually filled out a second one as well, but it doesn't look like I am getting a Google form receipt after submission.

Is there a way to confirm that we're signed up for the brass edition ilouis?

Brass just hit the MOQ of 50 units, louis has not yet mentioned how invoicing will be done. GB is through May 31st, so it may be closer to the GB's conclusion.

Stay tuned for more, updates are definitely faster in discord and you get to hang out with a bunch of cool people! :)

If you submitted the form you're good. At 100 units some options get added for a finish (unfinished or sandblasted+UV coating) so he likely won't invoice until then. Will check with him in discord to get more info on this. :)

Hey guys, if you want a full brass orders are live here! -> https://ilumkb.com/products/gb-full-brass-nutcracker-v2

Easier than invoicing. If you already placed an order through his website, he will combine it. Prices are in SGD remember! The google form was more of an IC for brass to see if hitting MOQ was even possible.

It looks like the brass webpage states "Raw brass finishing" period and all info regarding sandblast/clearcoat has been removed--is this no longer happening at 100 units?
