The Cherry G81-1236 is a special version of the G81-1000 keyboard made by Cherry for Goupil.


This keyboard is notable for its "Industrial" color scheme, unique among Cherry keyboards, but possibly inspired by IBM's Industrial Model M. The case is a greenish black color. The keycaps are thick double shots which are darker than the standard Cherry white color, with a creamy tint. The Russian legends are pad-printed in a carrot red color, instead of the standard deep red. The keyboard uses MY switches with the old style M-shape sliders.


Known variants
