Black space saver with blue cherries

Well, the image name has "Strongman" in it, so it's very likely Strongman.  The switches are not Cherries (Cherries keyswitches are "+" shaped, while the ones in the picture are Alps-shaped).  I think the keyboard pictured is this keyboard.

It sure is. Compare it to xsphat's all black one:

But blue sliders! So up to now, we know of SMK-85's with black Alps, white Alps, Strongman white sliders, and now blue something, probably Strongman.

Good call my young padawan, it is the SMK 85, I know it well, but the switches might be Strongman, as they make a bastard product of the Alps.
