What does 'Kuro Shiro' Mean:
Shirokuro (白黒) means black and white in Japanese, as Shiro (白) is the word for white in English, while Kuro (黒) is the one for black. The color combination often stands for “good (白) and evil (黒)” or “right (白) and wrong (黒)” or “true (白)” and “false (黒)” in Japan.

What are Cherry Profile Keycaps?
If you are new to the mechanical keyboards, you might see different descriptions such as "OEM profile", "Cherry profile", "XDA profile" and "SA profile" and wonder what they all mean.
In short, profiles mean heights. The most glaring difference among them is the overall height of keycaps. For a detailed walk through, please check out our Guide to Keycap Profiles.
Cherry profile keycaps are a sculpted keycap set that many people find comfortable to type with, similar to OEM profile keycaps but are a millimeter shorter. It has different levels of rows and makes it perfect for everyday typing and gaming.
Cherry profile keycaps originated in Cherry’s original mechanical keyboards, the G80 and G81 series mechanical keyboards, but have long become popular within the mechanical keyboard community.
What is PBT material?
PBT (short for “polybutylene terephthalate”) is one of the hardest and most durable keycap materials available. Unlike other materials, PBT does not turn yellow over time, and is extremely resistant to heat and chemicals.
Double Shot vs. Dye Sublimation
Both are processes used for creating the legend on your keycap. Dye-sub involves printing the legends onto the keycap, while double-shot uses injection molding to insert the legend. Both methods offer great durability and feel.
