Hey everyone, Wanted to share another update on the status of MT3 Susuwatari. We are currently still working with @matt3o on the final colors for the set. The same issue we’ve noted in our previous update is still something we are working on solving. Currently, we are looking for one more round of color matching on the off-white legends and dark modifiers. In addition, we are fine-tuning the different color modifiers in order to ensure legibility with the various legends. Our goal is still to these fulfilled before the end of the year. We will share some photos of the next round of color samples when they are available as well. We want to apologize for the delays and can’t wait to bring this one over the finish line.

Since the drop is still in production it would be cool to see some option to add more to their original order. The wait has only made me want more of these caps!

I bailed on this when it was delayed, but now I kinda regret it. This is looking like it will turn out good.

At this point, it'd be nice to produce a few (50?100?) extra BASE sets if possible. What a simple, elegant keyset. Thanks for working to make this right!

I also hope so. It must be really painful to wait for nearly a year.

More than nearly a year, this drop ran in October 2018, IIRC.

Is anyone who purchased the Extras set looking to get rid of it? I'd happily purchase from anyone who wants to sell!

Finally got some prototypes. https://matt3o.com/prototypes-at-last/ TL;DR:
  • Keycaps are great and legends are sharp
  • Colors need more work
  • Very few errors with the legends (but still some fixing is needed)
  • We need half a miracle to release before the end of the year

I’ve been getting into keycap typefaces lately and this is definitely one of my current favorites! Thanks for your attention to these details. Looking forward to finally getting them in the not too distant future.

Hey everyone, It’s been some time and I’m back with a much more substantial update on MT3 Susuwatari. We apologize for how much longer this project turned out to be - but do feel it’s imperative that we complete a project like this correctly with the aim to exceed the expectations of @matt3o and everyone who has joined. Current Status First, we need to update everyone on how everything is going. The good news is the end is in sight! Tooling, which was the most time-consuming part of this project has been completed. We’ve run test shots through the tool and the initial results are promising. I will share a few photos of the initial samples below - Note the extra thicc keycaps

Steps that are still pending before we ship include - adding minor texture to the keycaps via updates to the tool. Matt3o is also finalizing a few of the colors - for example, while the green shot is the exact color we picked the effect when combined with the darker modifier means the green legend actually looks more washed out than intended. We’ll be making some adjustments for cases like this.

Once everything is confirmed, we’ll be entering full production to get these produced. The aim is to have everything shipped by October but that is a stretch goal - we will definitely have these fulfilled before the end of the year unless something completely unexpected happens. So what happened? For those who are interested in the nitty gritty on this project, I’ll share more information here. When the project was initially conceived, we had laid out plans to fulfill these by the end of June. In fact, we thought we had baked-in sufficient buffer time as well and everything should proceed smoothly. However, as we started prepping for the initial tooling, we ran into issues with the thinner legends and what the tool realistically can support. One way out of this problem is to brute force it - we will produce far more keycaps than ordered and manually pick out those that did not meet our specs. In the end, we decided this was not the correct path to take as it would produce an immense amount of unnecessary waste. In addition, it would take a lot of manual labor to pick out those that were not to spec and there is no guarantee that 100% of all problematic keycaps would be sorted out. Instead, we switched gears and completely overhauled our tooling plan - we went ahead and made a set of doubleshot tools that is more robust with more features. This will aid us in getting a beautiful set out to everyone and we hope with this move, we'll be able to create keycaps that stand the test of the community. Closing Thoughts We did not expect this journey to have taken as long as it did, though I am glad we went the more difficult route and I hope the final results speak for themselves. I’ll be sending out more samples to @matt3o in the coming days so he can evaluate the final test samples before signing off on production. I’m really proud of these keycaps and I can’t wait to share them with the rest of you.

Thanks for the update! I prefer light texture, so that’s fine by me. Inevitably not all preferences can be accommodated to the hilt at the same time.

Is it unlikely that we'll get these by the 2nd week of October?

Yeah I'm just worried cuz I'm moving out of the US by the 2nd week of October. Someone can still receive the keycaps at the address I used but I won't be seeing them until the holidays when a relative comes over to bring em in.
