Leopold FC660C Topre Switch keyboard
Leopold is a Korean company. They are perhaps best known for the Leopold FC660C keyboard, featuring electrostatic capacitance (aka Topre) switch, same used in Happy Hacking Keyboard of Japan.

PBT is a high quality plastic for keycaps. It doesn't create ugly shiny finger surface after long use.

Oh, and very expensive.
Between Leopold FC660C and the Happy Hacking Keyboard, I think the Leopold is the better keyboard, simply because it has arrow keys and more modifier keys.
