KAT Iron Inspiration

Iron is extremely interesting, of the utmost importance in human history and since when trying to match its likeness with plastic poses a bit of a problem, which in my mind could be solved using a gradient.
This allowed to show either the different colours that iron/steel can appear in varying forms and light. However I love the effect of oxidation,  with optional hints of rust, or a full on rust layout you get what I believe to be a very verstatile, interesting set in a profile that offers a wide range of kits for the wide range of boards available.
Continuing to expand on this, I love being able to tie seemingly unrelated things into a overarching theme.  Using influences in Biology, Chemistry, and human history a range of mini-themes emerged under the larger umbrella of a simple, amazing element.
With the kit flexibility that comes with KAT, I wanted to have an alternate alphas that fit the theme, after looking at a few options I came across the Phoenician alphabet, which fit perfetly as its origin came about in the early Iron age of history. It spread throughout the Mediterranean world and was adopted by many cultures. And it just looks amazing IMHO.

Imaginary Product

Allegedly, production finished back in June, and should be shipping to vendors. However, there has been zero communication from DeskHero about timelines. I received no response when I last emailed DeskHero about the product status. There is little evidence that DeskHero actually intends to ship this product. I suspect that at least some sets were manufactured, based on photos on GeekHack, but given the lack of response from DeskHero I am not holding my breath. I will update this review if I ever receive the keycaps.

There is absolutely no benefit to ordering through proxies. If you want to order keycaps with a 2+ year long lead time, order directly from ZFrontier. I have received keycaps directly from ZFrontier in the past, I have yet to receive anything from DeskHero.
