I might. It's a lovely set but I ordered a few different ones and only looking to keep one. But probably won't decide until my Heavy 6 arrives.

Hey everyone,

Just a little update as to whats going on - GMK has been paid so we are just waiting for it to be made. Estimated to be done sometime in February.

I just noticed some photos of the caps above. Did these end up shipping much sooner than estimated?

The designer usually gets the first set as soon as its done, whilst GMK is still sorting the rest of the orders.

Indeed they did! That was a nice surprise!

I live in Belgium and that's right next to gmk which explains why I've received the Keyset a lot faster but those should be in your hands soon :-D

I just sent RAMA and Kate a message to check the progress on those and I will get back to you guys as soon as I have an answer :) I'm excited to see how those turn out! :D

Does anyone know the status of the ones getting shipped to Kono, I'm super excited to get mine soon!

I need to check with them as the last time I heard from them was before Christmas ^^ I'll update you guys as soon as possible though I hope they will get them soon :D

What's up everyone?!

Here is what will probably be one of the last updates for this GB :D

zFrontier received one part of their GMK order (some of the bases and the compatibility kits they ordered), the rest should arrived this week. They are going to proceed the Chinese order then the English ones - they are trying to do as much as possible this week and try and finish shipping next week.

Kono - Keysets have cleared customs and are on their way to their warehouse for check in.

As for the RAMA artisans, all US and Asian orders have been shipped by RAMA to the respective vendors - the EU ones will be shipped tomorrow as RAMA was waiting on a shipping address confirmation. They should all be in your hands pretty soon :D

Again, I wanted to thank you all for your support and for making this possible!

I received my set here in the US -- but it came in atrocious packaging once again. Similar to GMK Camping, Kono's shipping/sorting facility has chosen inappropriate materials to package the sets, and it's arrived with damage to the banderole. It is quite disappointing, and quite infuriating that they have made this mistake in logistics twice.

Here are some pictures of the packaging they used: a thin plastic bag with no protection -- inside, a keyset tray with banderole in a loosely and scantily-applied bubble wrap. I cannot emphasize how disappointed I feel that they had sent an apology for this particular problem when GMK Camping shipped (they offered a meager $10 coupon for their store -- not even a refund), and the same problem has occurred yet again. In the meantime, I have sent an email to Kono requesting appropriate measures for this problem. See below:

Gotta agree, this shouldn't have happened after GMK Camping.  We were told the issue was fixed/being handled.

Some people might not care if the banderole gets damaged, but I do; especially, on "custom" banderoles. Why even take time to design a custom banderole if your store front is going to ship them without care.  I haven't received my GMK Monochrome yet, but it will probably come in the same condition as Lightning's.  :mad:

I got shipping just this week. Yours should be coming soon. I ordered a RAMA cap as well. I'm assuming they waited until those came in to ship. Combined with the poly bag shipping issues, it looks like there was a little delay until Kono got a handle on shipping.  You can check here for Kono's GB updates: https://kono.store/pages/weekly-update

Got my GMK Monochrome kit in today. At least Lightning got some bubble wrap. Mine was packaged straight into the poly bag, no protection or anything. The poly bag was ripped down to the plastic wrapping for the kit when it arrived, and the banderole and tray are damaged. I'm not too big of a stickler, but I feel like it should be brought up.

I know it isn't Kono's fault, but the shipping issues definitely weren't resolved.

I sent an email to Kono's support. Good luck everyone!
