I'm breathless!

I ordered the Chinese Army Key http://www.mtechnologies.com/pla/ yesterday. It arrived today! (Shipped from Denver, and I'm about 1 1/2 hours away! That was FAST!

Anyway, it's quite nice! Heavy, substantial, and looks really good, too!

I'd order another one in a heartbeat! Well, I've not yet done a "sound check", but do expect it to be just fine!

Just a quick report on this key. I'm likin' it!

Looks like you have plenty of good choices, but let me add one more: the Czech army key.  These things were made back in the 1950s, but the one I got a few months ago was still in its original wrapping and looked brand new.  The key action is smooth and very easy to adjust.  Although I hadn't used a straight key in maybe 40 years, I found it easy to get used to.

You can find out more here:

2nd that one - it's a great key.
