Years ago I remember the Navy Key was very popular.  It was a straight key with a larger knob.  I want one.  Are they still around?

Actually, they're all over the place!

Even Vibroplex makes 'em these days, as well as numerous other "new" key makers.  Just check the ads in a copy of QST, or for a new one check out the listings on HRO.com, Vibroplex.com, or bencher.com (just to list a few).

Do believe it's harder to find a key with the old j-38 flat-top finger plate these days (hi)!

You are probably thinking of the "Navy flameproof" keys. (XXX-26003A) These were very popular. I was introduced to them in 1970 as a Navy air crewman. Every P2V7(SP2H)Neptune antisubmarine aircraft had one, as did the P3 Orions. They are common on E-Bay.
