Hello 😀

🐙 ‘Luna’ is a collaborative effort by @archetype_mk x @prime_caps — this keycap was an absolute treat to get and unbox. The detail from the resin casting is absolutely crazy and the stem fit is literally perfect.

As per the usual, I am going to leave some comments and thoughts about the cap! Keycap quality, stem fit, finish. Let’s do this!

Keycap Quality

I have never received a keycap from Archetype before, but I had always been interested in his work! This particular cap is designed by Archetype and then resin casted in collaboration with PrimeCaps. Now I have received many keycaps from PrimeCaps so I know the quality they crank out.  It seriously looks amazing. The detail is incredible and the quality is near perfect. I tried my damn best to find something to criticize on this, and I couldn’t. Even the “butt” of the keycap was so smooth.

Stem Fit

Again, this is where I am EXTREMELY critical about. This keycap had a great fit. No friction putting it on and it pulled off with a normal amount of force that I’d expect from a stem that fit properly.  Inspecting it further, the stem and butt of the cap was smooth and finished very well, which definitely contributed to the stem fitting on the switch with ease. I am really proud of the process taken to make this part of the cap work well.

Finish & Thoughts

So this particular finish almost looks unfinished? It’s a gorgeous stone color and fits with a variety of different colorways. I personally love how the texturing of this cap really shines with this particular color choice.

My final thoughts are what everyone is probably thinking, this is a damn nice keycap. Make sure to check out @archetype_mk and @prime_caps and have a great day everyone!

How did you take these photos?

Camera equipment used is a Sony A7rii and a 55mm Sony FE Zeiss f/1.8 with some macro tube extensions. I also use continuous LED panels to set up these shots for lighting.
