Mechanical Keyboards, Keycaps & Components

By Otani

"The inspiration of this set was from, well, my first love. I've known her since we were five, went to the same school and grew up together. We were crazy about each other at one point during high school, so we started dating. Senior year, college came around the corner and it just did not work out. I remember it was bittersweet, fun and heartbroken at the same time. So much time, so many memories and so many relationships have passed, but I still think of her from time to time. Her favorite color has always been purple, and for so long despite my original indifference to that color, it has become a part of me now. I hope this set will remind you of all the purest feelings and emotions you've ever had in your life! And yes, that include those nights getting wasted with your best buddy in the back of an old bar that smells like wet clothing with a big bottle of scotch trying to get over that one person you fall madly in love with!" - Otanishock

GMK First Love has 3 kits, and including ISO support in the base kit with UK keys, the novelties are all custom made. There are no novelties included in the base kit to keep prices down and the base kit should cover nearly all layouts. The colors are custom, thus we need to reach 250 Units of Base Kits sold to make the set happen. Deskmats are also available and have been designed with the help of Adil.
