The Blade is probably the ultimate straight key. Based on a “Swedish Pump” design, which is renowned for effortless keying, the Blade key goes far beyond typical keys with this mechanism in finish and visual appearance. The gold plated components provide a stunning visual contrast to the heavy cast iron base, which gives this key an unyielding presence on your table. The Navy-style knob rides low above the table and is perfectly positioned for European or American style keying.
The return force is created by a blade spring that is attached to the lever, making it finely adjustable and completely consistent over long time periods. That blade spring also provides a frictionless way to hold the lever in place.
If you are currently using another straight key, chances are that the Blade will displace it from your operating table. Find out how our users rated this key on eHam.
