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.
The base of this key is made by melting and casting phosphatized iron.  As a result, no two bases will be identical, even though the overall shape and dimensions are ensured by the mold.  A rough uneven surface with individual patterns is characteristic for this process.

If you are currently using another straight key, chances are that the Blade will displace it from your operating table.
