Amazing caps!
Took a long time, but totally worth the wait! These keycaps feel great, and I love the color. Although, there is a slight difference between the original renderings, I prefer the color of the actual product. The base set is a gray that is slightly warmer, and I am happy that is the case. It is reminiscent of some old electric IBM typewriters I played with when I was a kid. I love the colors. The double shot letters are amazingly crisp: There is only one imperfection that I noticed, which actually does not bother me at all, but letting Drop know since I am sure there are other customers that will be bothered by this detail, so they can address this in future runs. The legend on the Command key is a little thicker than other keys, as you can see in the following pics: As I said, it is not super noticeable, but some might not like that. That does not take away the great look and feeling of the caps overall. Thanks Drop and Matt3o for this amazing set. Can't wait for another collaboration between you! P.S. I love the Special edition keycap!

Another masterpiece form matt3o!
I was recently planning a retro build and was looking for keycaps to go with the theme. Was looking at SA profile for a while, but there wasn't anything out there that was appealing and available. Then I came across the MT3 Susuwatari and it fits the theme I wanted to go with perfectly! The MT3 profile is, special. It is definitely not for everyone, and especially not for gaming. For typing/coding they are truly something, I personally love everything about them. The texture, the feeling, and the colors are just spot on. If there was one thing I could complain about it's the fact that they are missing a NorDe/International kit. I really hope Drop makes this possible in the future.

What switch types are thse compatible with?
MX stems, as almost all switches on the market tend to be. Including Kailh BOX switches and those using a similar stem/surround type mount.
What does it mean that these have "doubleshot legends"?
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.

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.

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?
