I think this is a stretch, but is there any way to still purchase these?? I just recently started looking for key caps and these look superb.

I had no idea this was run here. I've been waiting for ages for this to come to life only to miss it. Extremely disappointed. New massdrop (drop) design certainly didn't help.

already counting the days until it arrives :D Also thx for ISO & NorDe. It's always frustrating to find cool sets without NorDe. I'm unwilling to switch to ANSI :)
