A New Look for White on Black

Black and white is a duo that stands the test of time. That goes for keycaps, too. In the past, we brought these two shades together with standard latin legends (in both Cherry and MT3 profile), but now we’re putting a new twist on them. Our GMK White-on-Black Katakana custom keycap set is the colorway you know and love, now with legends inspired by the Japanese Katakana writing system. Simple, elegant, and built to last, the set encompasses one comprehensive kit to cover everything from compact builds to larger layouts with full numpads. Featuring all Japanese Katakana monolegends (with the exception of the F-row and numpad in Kanji) with icon modifiers, these caps are made in Germany using custom tooling. Their doubleshot ABS construction is thick, durable, and fade resistant.

The Base Kit

As the only kit, the Base Kit is designed to provide comprehensive keyboard coverage, without all those unnecessary keys. This kit will cover virtually every common layout, including 40%, 60%, 65%, 75%, 80% (TKL), and 100% full-size keyboards. Included is a 7u spacebar with swappable bottom row modifiers for HHKB and true HHKB support (MX mount); 2u, 2.25u, and 2.75u spacebars, plus an extra "B" key for Alice layouts; an R2 1.75u backspace, R3 1.25u tab, and R3 1.5u enter for 40% keyboards; shift keys in 1u, 1.25u, 2.25u, and 2.75u sizes; and various alternative modifier keys to complete many other custom layouts. Finally, the kit also includes additional keys for ISO and JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) layouts.

Will these be getting restocked like regular WoB? Didn’t expect extras to sell out as fast as they did

Top Answer
Yes, once the F4 mold is fixed by GMK. Edit: As of March 2022, this issue has been resolved. All orders will include the correct F4 key.Read More
