Morse Express Christmas Key  


In Celebration of the Season... 

Morse Express has commissioned its thirteenth annual Christmas Key. 

Our 2013 Christmas Key is a fully functional miniature telegraph key made by GHD Telegraph Key in Sendai City, Japan.  It incorporates traditional Japanese craftsmanship with GHD's impeccable engineering and finish.

The Morse Express 2013 Christmas Key is fully adjustable, with precision pin bearings at the trunnion, and it has two miniature binding posts.  Its balance is perfect, and lever tension is provided by an unusual but very effective piston compression spring that is located forward of the trunnion post. The contacts are hard-silver and the unique and distinctive  triangular base is finished in mirror-polished hard chrome.   The knob is hand-turned ebony, and there are three small anti-skid rubber feet on the bottom for stability.  GHD's Toshihiko Ujiie uses both modern and traditional techniques to produce a miniature key that will be equally at home in the radio shack, in the field, or decorating a Christmas tree.

The Christmas keys represent my annual opportunity to play around with key design and to have a master craftsman carry out the work.  This year’s key features a triangular base which is specifically designed to distribute the weight and the keying force, providing a stable platform.”   The 2013 Christmas Key  measures 1-3/16  x 2  inches at the base and it weighs just over 2 ounces.    
    
The 2013 Christmas Key is a limited edition of 150 keys priced at $89.95, plus shipping and handling. Each key has a label with “Christmas 2013” and a unique serial number.  You can place a secure credit card order by clicking on the the "Add to Shopping Cart" button below, or call (800) 238-8205 toll free to order by phone. ,
