“In Celebration of the Season…
Fourteenth in the popular annual series, our 2014 Christmas Key is a fully functional miniature telegraph key commissioned by Morse Express and made by GHD Telegraph Key in Sendai City Japan. The Christmas Key is made to demanding American technical standards, combining traditional Japanese craftsmanship with GHD’s impeccable engineering and finish.
The Morse Express 2014 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 a compression spring that is located forward of the trunnion posts. The contacts are hard-silver and there are three small anti-skid 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 deep-grained mahogany base with a warm, smooth finish, perfectly proportioned to distribute the weight of the key and the downward keying force, providing a stable platform for comfortable use.
The 2014 Christmas Key measures 1¼” x 2¼” at the base. It is 1½” tall and it weighs just over 1½ ounces.
The Morse Express 2014 Christmas Key is a limited edition of 150 keys priced at $89.95, plus shipping and handling. Each key has a label with “Christmas 2014” 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.
A word about the serial numbers…. If you bought our 2013 Christmas key last year, then the same serial number will be held for you this year, until approximately December 10th. The exact date will depend on how quickly we sell out of “unallocated” numbers. If the serial number is important to you please place your order sooner rather than later.
Thank you very much for your continued support of this project, and I hope our Christmas key brings a little extra joy to the holiday season for you!
