Thanks to the ground-breaking technology used in making the injection molding mold of these keycaps, the Keytok CTRL Keycap is able to bring double-shot keycaps to a whole new level. We name these keycaps semi-transparent keycaps since one side of the keycap is made of colored, translucent, Poly-carbonate material, which enables the RGB light of your keyboard to go through the keycap, offering a nice lumination.
The CTRL keycaps are offered in 3 colorways, and 122 keys are included in the set.

These are pretty cool. The print feels a bit fuzzy in areas but that's the nature of dye-sub PBT. The polycarbonate portion has a nice frosted look to it, which softens LED lighting. White looks kind of dumb through these but orange/red looks great and some other colors, such as pink or green actually look pretty decent too. For what I paid, I'm pretty happy with these and it only took 54 days to receive them.
Installed on my Nuphy75 and fits with low profile Gateron switches!
I really like the set, but I received the wrong color (I ordered mint, but I got orange), and it doesn't have all of the caps I need to fit either my Keychron V6 (108-key full-size) or Keychron K2V2 75%.
The keycap set is quite pretty, feels like good quality, and the quality control on all the caps have been great.
The RGB on my keyboard shines through the sides of the key and adds a good bit of character to my keyboard.
Only complaint is that the transparent sides are VERY prone to dust build up. Definitely should have an air blower or a cloth nearby to help clean the caps.
Keytok CTRL Semi-Transparent Keycap Set
These keycaps are absolutely gorgeous in person with the transparent portion of the caps being wonderful and textured, reminiscent of sea glass (I received green). The font is consistent and works so well with the retro-future (80s but better) aesthetic.
They are heavy without being thunky and slightly textured to give a heady grip on your fingertips. I couldn’t be happier with these except I wish there were more spacebar size options. There is one in the box, and it looks to be a standard 6.25u. As I haven’t chosen the keyboard I want to place these on yet, I’m not certain, but keep that in mind.
Excellent purchase. I may buy the other color ways as well. If this keyboard model in the stock pictures ever comes to fruition, I’d buy that one as it’s clearly made for this style.
