Black Leather Keyboard Perfect for Joan Jett’S Computer
December 13th, 2008
This over-the-top keyboard from Japan gets its tough-ass looks from its form-fitting black leather hide.
Each key of the ritsy Gokukawa keyboard (¥49,800 / $548 USD) is meticulously hand-wrapped in rich black leather. The result is a completely monochromatic glossy black-on black design. The base model features is covered smoothly, making it impossible to see the letters on any of the keys, but if you’re investing in a $500+ keyboard, you probably know your QWERTY’s by now.
An upgrade to the even pricier Gokukawa Pro (¥54,800 / $603 USD) enhances the usability by engraving the letters of each key to show through a skin-tight layer of buttery saddle leather.
So if you don’t mind spending more money on your keyboard than you would on a nice leather motorcycle jacket, you can find these over at Wazakura Koubou (translated from Japanese).
