Nice keycap slope. The keycap tops are cylindrical with a smooth rounded front edge. The keycaps on the side rows all have the same profile as the typewriter's Tab row (quite identical to the CapsLock row on a Cherry keyboard).

Layout of the typewriter keyboard. The keycaps are lasered (even the spacebar!), several of the "function" keys are blank (although some keyboard models have lids instead).

Centered stems perfectly fitting Cherry switches, sitting just a bit tighter than original Cherry keycaps.

Here is how the typewriter itself looks like (I haven't got one, just ripped off the keycaps at my local fleamarket):

If the keys were black, I'd try calling the ENTER "The monolith" or "Black Monolith"... but yeah it's white ... and not spinning in space. Shame.

Nice suggestions ;-)

I wanted to take a pic to show an undisclosed detail: the front side of the key is lettered as well. And then I discovered the key even has a side (right to left) slope:

Now I wouldn't be surprised if it started speaking :lol:

BMF = "Be My Friend" or "Bad MF" ? :mrgreen:
Bad MF.

I doubt an enter that size needs to ask for friends :P
