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!
I love the Special edition keycap!
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.
Nothing’s more relaxing than a Miyazaki movie—except maybe a super chill desktop setup. With these lofi caps to study to, we’re bringing you a bit of both. It’s the Drop + Matt3o MT3 Susuwatari Keycap Set: the perfect finishing touch to any battlestation-turned-boiler-room. Inspired by magical soot balls from a certain celebrated (and spirited) Studio Ghibli masterpiece, these Matt3o-designed keycaps combine dark grays with playful candy-like pastels to create a subtly whimsical aesthetic. “Susuwatari” literally translates to “Wandering Soot,” and this set will translate flawlessly onto any Miyazaki fan’s desk. Sculpted in our exclusive MT3 profile—featuring scooped caps and durable, doubleshot ABS construction—it feels just as good as it looks. So, whether you’re a Mech Keys enthusiast, Miyazaki scholar, or Kamaji himself, this is one set of soot you can’t pass up.
MT3: Sculpted, Scooped, Satisfying
Our first-ever exclusive profile, MT3 is a reimagining of retro typing experience—with a look and feel that’s made for the modern user. Designed in collaboration with Matt3o, it’s based on the original beamspring terminals from the 1970s and heavily sculpted: meaning the contour from row to row forms a concave shape, designed to minimize finger travel. Each MT3 keycap also sports a scooped top: a nod back to beamspring terminals, with a slightly refined shape to better fit today’s boards. Made from ABS with durable doubleshot legends, the soot-balls-turned-keycaps in the MT3 Susuwatari Keycap Set will last as long as you choose to cast your spell on them.

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?
