Icon mods lol, would make no sense to have Control R3. We have down arrows for that now.

It's cherry profile, and 1.5mm I believe. I can be wrong though, can Captain come by and confirm?

Thanks for letting us be a part of this buy! We're happy to be getting this set out to Australia.

I would like to disclose that the price descrepancy between the $80 USD on zFrontier and the $85 USD (converted to USD) on Daily Clack is to account for GST. We are putting in a bit on our end to cover a bit of the tax and keep the cost low.

If you need to reach me you can find me on AUMK, the Discord, or on Reddit, as well as here.

The Icon Mods on this set are fantastic and can be used with so many different sets of alphas. I may get two....

I have a few questions: what color are the modifiers? Black or dark gray? Also what color are the modifier legends and the alphas? White? Can you please post some codes for them (hex/RAL/Pantone)? Thanks!

Blue is 8181c
Modifier was based on 11c but jtk is gonna use a tad darker tone so I can't provide a Pantone.
White is same as Hana, ws1? I'm in bed typing this with one hand, not remembering, I'll come back to this later tonight lol

Not sure if you were referring to me or not but I can confirm they are cherry profile and 1.5mm+ thick (some I measured were closer to 2 but I was just using a tape measure so not exactly calliper levels of accuracy or consistency). Personally I rate them as very decent, especially for the price. There are some very minor legend inconsistencies on a few of the keys (though I believe another round of refinements has taken place since the most recent set I own). Are they as good as GMK? Not quite but they are very close (many people seem to think GMK are perfect, they aren't but they are extremely good). I guess you could liken it to say comparing a VW to a BMW perhaps? Maybe that's a bad example, but I think in terms of value $80 for JTK is better than $130+ for GMK if that makes any sense? (diminishing returns and all that, which I'm sure is true towards the upper end in any hobby, audio is the one that immediately springs to mind for myself)

I didn't exactly mean you but thanks for the help!

Also I should note, these are brand new molds with icon mods. So I wouldn't expect many discreptancies or issues :)

So I guess I misread or misunderstood something somewhere but I joined the gb from ZF a couple weeks ago but I'm in US. Does that mean I'm not getting a set if I dont re order from the new US vender?

It means that you can get it cheaper from Kono. As they are the US proxy, what you would need to do is refund with ZF and purchase through Kono as it is cheaper shipping. But if you don't refund you will still receive your set from ZFrontier. Only thing that changed is we are offering cheaper shipping options for these keysets. It's a bit late with the addition of Kono but still worth adding in for the options.

One more week until GB ends.


Remember, there is a Shishi raffle included for those who are in the GB

Also I realized I never mentioned it, but the pantones that will be matched for these are

8181C - Blue-Gray
11C - Cool Gray (Dark modifiers)
