Training in the ancient Japanese martial art of Kendo centers on the shinai: a lightweight-yet-powerful sparring sword made of bamboo. Typing on the next installment in our Expression Series also centers on the Shinai: an enthusiast keyboard featuring tranquil bamboo aesthetic keycaps and exceptional build quality. Both begin with a special aluminum ENTR case, which features a green anodized finish and pad printed bamboo sprout artwork by OSHETART. Within the Shinai’s case, an ENTR PCBA is equipped with Holy Panda X Switches and Drop Phantom stabilizers for a next-level tactile feel to match its natural style. Completing the Shinai presentation, the Bamboo Keycap Set from our Skylight Series makes this board even more like its namesake sword, in both appearance and performance. Hand-assembled in the USA, the Shinai Keyboard is a cut above—and a slice of our own storied tradition.
There’s nothing like the feel of an enthusiast-level mechanical keyboard. Every desk deserves one—but not everybody has the time to source components and build one. That’s where our Expression Series comes in. As the most accessible line in our Icon Collection, the Expression Series is the place to find pre-built keyboards with enthusiast-level quality. Each one is outfitted with a host of excellent components and quality-controlled assembly for peerless performance. Adding more than a bit of bamboo-inspired style to our Expression Series, the Shinai Keyboard features a green aluminum ENTR case with exclusive bamboo artwork, as well as the Bamboo Keycap Set from our Skylight Series for a curated aesthetic. It’s also outfitted with our Holy Panda X Switches and Phantom Stabilizers for a truly tailored tactile feel. Plus, it’s backlit with white LEDs to deliver sophisticated illumination in low-light settings. Equal parts natural and functional, the Shinai Keyboard may just make your typing a martial art.
