A Groundbreaking Profile, Back for More

Sculpted in Hi-Profile, Matt3o’s groundbreaking MT3 /dev/tty custom keycap set changed the way we type. From its heavily slanted design to the scooped, contoured tops of each cap, the set recreates the feel of vintage keyboards. Now, we’re bringing the profile back in a brand-new colorway with doubleshot tooling that’s never been attempted before. As opposed to a dye-sublimation printing process, these doubleshot legends are permanently molded inside the keycap, thus becoming an integral part of it. This ensures reliable legends and continuity throughout the set. Originally called “Soot,” Susuwatari (literally “Wandering Soot”) is an homage to Matt3o’s favorite design house, Studio Ghibli, whose animated films feature fluffy little Soot sprites. Made up of warm gray alphas, almost-black modifiers, and multicolored legends, the set is compatible with Cherry MX switches and clones.

From the IBM Terminal to the Desktop

Based on the profile from the iconic IBM beamspring terminals of the 1970s, this custom set is fully sculpted in Hi-Profile. What's Hi-Profile, you ask? Many computer terminals of old were constructed with a slanted switch layout from front to back. Because of that slant, the keycaps sat at an angle atop the switches, too. This set is a reimagination of that unique slanted build, but optimized for modern keyboards. Thanks to some significant design work from Matt3o, 3D modeling, and a whole lot of elbow grease, we're proud to bring these innovative caps back in a brand-new colorway.

Question
The "f" and "j" keys look like the other keys. Do they have a dimple or some other way to distinguish them to help with locating the home row?

They have a deeper scoop than the other keys. It's quite easy to find them by feel.Read More

Question
What does it mean that these have "doubleshot legends"?
Jan 21, 2021
Top Answer

The legends are a separate piece of plastic from the keycap rather than being printed or etched on top. This means the legend will always be visible no matter how much wear the keycap recieves.Read More
