German Electronic Design GMK Shanshui

The long path home.

GMK Shanshui is the predecessor set to GMK Houhai, enabling the molds for Houhai, a far more complicated and prohibitively expensive set, to be produced using stock colors at an attractive price point. In the wise words of one vendor with far better business sense than most designers, “you can have 80+ new molds, or you can have seven custom RAL colors, but you can’t have both.” Hence, the long path home. - Grundlemere

5 Kits are available for GMK Shanshui - Inkstone (the Simplified Chinese Base Kit), Old Path (the Traditional Chinese Base Kit), Clear Water and Lijiang and Space Kit. Example board layouts which can be equipped by GMK Shanshui are 65%, Ortholinear, 100%, Vortex Core (with 40s Kit), HHKB, 1800-0 and more! There are ISO Keys available in the Base Kit, with a 7U Spacebar. The novelty kit also includes a ISO Enter with a bespoke symbol. The black and white color does not only look great alone but can be mixed with other sets too!
