Anyone else a bit sad that these don't really match the GMK Laser caps?
thinkV
how so? could you take some pictures please?
eapdang
I am referencing some of the pictures on reddit, unfortunately my laser did not arrive in the end so I couldn't compare in person.
Would anyone want to swap a Cherry MX spacebar (either color) for a Topre spacebar?
the_marsbar
were you able to find a trade partner? I don't have the MX spacebar but would love to talk if you're willing to sell the Topre spacebar :)
Looking for Purple Cherry MX spacebar if anybody has anything please let me know. Thanks!
I'm also looking for the Pink Topre spacebar if anyone wants to sell it. On GH I'm thelaughingman and on reddit I'm u/nixpalto.
The spacebar is light and types good on my hhkb. Great quality.
Will this drop come back? I neeeeeeed it.
Curious if these are actually Cherry profile or if they're OEM. Anyway, I've got 2 backspace keys: 1 Purple, 1 Pink. Looking to acquire 2 x 1u R1 Pink keys. Anyone interested? Hit me up at /u/kozahtli on mm, kozahtli on discord.

I have both MX backspaces and they seem to be Cherry Profile.
Looking to buy pink topre spacebar. Message u/BongoUnicorns
Want to swap my purple WASD for 4x FN keys (Arrow cluster)
I'm looking to buy any of these if no one wants theirs anymore :)
If anyone is looking to sell their pink Cherry spacebar, I would be interested - please send me a message on reddit at reddit.com/u/swenbearswen
Just got my artisans! 1x ESC, 4x R1 arrow keys and 1x backspace all in pink. I was planning to sell it as it was an impulse buy. But seeing it personally, I was surprised how awesome it is. Very lovely indeed. Can't wait for the laser.
Paopaw
If you do sell it let me know, I really wanted some
These turned out very nice! Has anybody noticed them fitting really really loose? I got the backspace in purple and am using 78g zealio with zeal stabs and they are loosie goosie. Other then that I just wish I got spacebars.
Uleoja
I got the WASD cluster and 2 of my keys are so loose that turning the keyboard upside down will make them fall off.. guessing manufacturing defect.
These are so nice I wish I had gotten more! Of both colors!
These turned out really nice :)

nice, the 1U looks really tasty. i hope you didn't try to eat it :)
rob_ger
Lol no, but I am looking forward to putting it on my boatd with the rest of the set.
I wasn't expecting to get my shipping notification this early, but its a welcome surprise.
Anybody wanting to trade 4 R1 FN keys for the WASD cluster? (purple)
Looking to buy any/all of these! booleanjulien on Reddit.
Those shots of fully kitted black HHKB with wasd+ are SENSATIONAL but the price tag total starts approaching that of another topre board... Just settled for a purple Esc, Enter, Space for simplicity.
Can I use the wasd for the arrow keys or 4pcs R1 Fn caps? Will be using it for a dz60 board.
Paopaw
4pcs R1 Fn caps ;-)
Some brief question regarding Topre, I need to be sure ;-)
1) is this correct for the Realforce?
search
2) Is the keycap profile identical across all Topre boards, specifically Realforce, 660C & HHKB?
DribbelDog
2) the profiles of the stock topre keycaps are the same
Can someone help explain to me what makes Artisan Keycaps so expensive?

Basically this. They're also more unique, being that they're handmade, and I think that little extra flair for your board is worth it.
“because” no one gives away their own labor.
Ugh...signed up for Esc, Caps Lock, WASD, Enter, Space Bar, and 4 Fn keys (arrow cluster). All pink.
Laser got me bad, but this will look sick on my purple Norbauer x Laser TKL!

4pcs R1 it is then Laser waves for wasd :D
Paopaw
Oooh, very nice! :D
Hmm, spacebar or esc key? Maybe none for this broke boi in this hobby. If this was drop next year.... Probably still be broke in the hobby.

I'm going with spacebar, as the Mitowaves kit had the sunset, and that's what is going on my escape key. Hot pink spacebar will look dope.
Would these work with a Keywalker68? https://www.massdrop.com/buy/47142
I'm fairly new to mechanical keyboards- I've never purchased separate keycaps before.
Selky
they will fit any mx style switch. The profile may be slightly different though.
Selky
Should fit the Keywalker 68 nicely, as that has Cherry Profile keycaps and MX Stems. Just be sure to order the “GMK” artisan caps. ;-)
I thought it was 17.99 for all of them and thought they're kinda ugly with the stem showing through but OK, went to buy.... $17.99 PER 1u CAP??? WTF
They don't even look like a good visual match for Laser anyway, and the Laser sets aren't available in Topre either. This is a very blatant (and underwhelming) cash-in on the Laser hype, nothing more. At least their other caps fit the theme and are reasonably priced.

People love the stem showing through. Matter of opinion, hardly a revolutionary concept.
Furthermore, you can MX slider topre boards and leave WASD (or QWERDF for mobas) stock if you like, that way you can preserve the most used keys if you play games that require a lot of keyboard movement for example. The space bar being offered in topre also saves you going through the trouble of having to 3D print the housing for the stabilisers if you MX slider the rest of your board.
These are useful whether you like it or not, despite them being fairly expensive. Lastly, HKP has been making artisan caps like these for longer than you've even been a member on Massdrop, I'm sure his colour matching is fine regardless of whether or not you think so through your computer monitor.

The Topre 6u spacebar is the last thing I want for my novatouched HHKB to use GMK Laser keyset. The last piece of the whole picture on the Laser theme keyset on my HHKB.
are these supposed to complement the MiTo Laser set or are they meant as an alternative? Can we get some screens/renders of how it would look like on Laser?

I think it would look sexy, but I'm not rich.
BlueCrowned
Oh, me neither. I kinda wish I was, simply so I could do meme boards like that without having any care as to the financial side of things, but I guess for now I gotta salivate over the idea and hope that HKP or someone else with access to a large number of these decides to do it.
gawd damn so expensive!!!!!!!!
I was trying to figure out what row/size caps would work for Ergodox layout. Found it. Image is attached. On the Ergodox Infinity there are 4 x 2u, 12 x 1.5u and 60 x 1u.

Is $60 for WASD normal for these kinds of caps? finding it hard to believe 4 caps can cost a third of the Laser set?

Artisan keycaps are not made by a team of people, but rather a person who is making them for the love of keycaps. It's a hobby much in the same vein as people who collect sneakers. The keys generally have a one time run in a particular colorway and then you won't see that key in those colors again. It's art. And once you are an established Artisan, the market determines what a fair cost is. Also, the mold that is used to make them. Most artisans might be lucky if they have more than 2 synths to cast their molds/caps. Which takes 12 hrs a cap to cast.
There is a lot of work to be done and the artistic value in these caps is great.
thinkV
The best way to explain it is, labor. Each cap takes someone minutes (1+ minutes per cap) to make while a full set that is made from injection moulding ABS (plastic) they make 100's of caps per minute of a persons time.
