Default looking for keyboard with rubber keys/non slippery

So I am using a MS "ergonomic" keyboard, that I hate partly because the keys a slick/glossy.

I am looking for a keyboard with very grippy/textured/matte/rubber feel to the keys, My only other requirement is that it would be great if it were mechanical but not necessary. I don't care about macros, media keys etc although I would not mind them.

I don't know of any grippy keyboards in existance.. maybe you could get something from Amazon to spray on that would work.:


Though people might accuse you of having "sticky keys"

Wear rubber surgical gloves with your MS Ergo.

While not inherent to the technology, PBT keys generally have a better grippier finish than ABS.
