Recommend me a set of PBT ISO-Nordic keycaps (Fullsize) :-)

Hello!

I have just purchased a CM Masterkeys Pro PBT keyboard. Even though it comes with PBT keycaps, I've been thinking abut swapping them out to make it "mine".

As far as I have been able to find out, the keyboard utilizes a standard ISO-layout, which should make it that little bit easier to find a set.

So far, I've found this set:

Are there just not that many sets to choose from, when looking for ISO-nordic PBT?

If you know of others that are worth recommending, I'd love to hear from you.

Hi!

A pretty decent set in a nice vintage colorway is the EnjoyPBT 9009 set. The set has ISO-Nordic support. A quite expensive set, but it can be found here:
https://candykeys.com/product/r4-enjoyp ... keycap-set
or here:
https://kbdfans.cn/collections/enjoypbt ... eycaps-set

Another really nice set is the /dev//tty MT3 set which also has ISO-Nordic support. The set was again available on Massdrop a few days ago, but unfortunately the drop has now ended. It will probably soon be available again thou.

Just some set that I came to think of, hope it was of some help :)

These are cheap, PBT, but lasered:

If you're not set on the "nordic" ISO though, you can also find more (better quality) keysets there.

And then there is also EnjoyPBT Slate, which is currently available for pre-order.

I know the struggle of trying to find a nice keyset with true ISO-Nordic support as I've been searching alot myself x) The only good thing is that of this moment there seems to be a lot more keyset being made or designed with international support in mind, which is really nice imo :)

Was /dev/tty really available a few days ago? I'd really like a set for my Novatouch, and I had the e-mail reminder on, but I didn't receive any e-mail that it was back in stock.

It was available in the most recent Re-Cap drop.

Did you have a reminder set on the original /dev//tty drop? Maybe that was the reason you didn't recieve a notification.

I love look of the set and the profile seems comfortable as well. I would have bought the set as my first hipro keyset if I had some funds to spare x)

The set you linked has problem with qc, The overall quality is pretty poorly were some legends doesnt match and some even has a significant more rough or smooth surface than other keys. Just a headsup.

You're talking about the KBDfans set, right? I can't imagine Matt3o being content with QC issues.

I believe kakan is right regarding the dev//tty keyset as round 1 had, as mentioned, issues with qc. Thanks for pointing that out :)

Matt3o wrote about it, and about Massdrop wanting to make the drop happen to soon:
https://matt3o.com/about-mt3-profile-and-devtty-set/

I didn't think about which round they offered in the Re-Cap, but I now assume it is round 1, which has the issues.
How is round 2 then? Has most of the issues been resolved?
