Beautiful and functional  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have also become a fan of the Morse Express "Christmas Series" of miniature
straight keys. If you check out the web site, you'll notice the picture.
The end product is every bit as gorgeous. Yep, you can skewer it with a hook
and dangle it from the Christmas tree (but please, high enough so the cats don't
try to get it) or put it on display. Do not, however, underestimate a third
possible use as a legitimate key.

The key is solid, albeit tiny, and quite easy to adjust. I found the small
knob and low profile conducive to single-finger tapping with a very low fatigue
level over time. Yes, you can find keys better suited for portable operation,
but you'd look long and hard to find something else with as much *style*.
As for me, only the QRP J-38 comes close.

Do you NEED it? No. Will you LOVE it if you buy it? Absolutely.

Great Small Key  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have bought all the Christmas keys since 2000. I have ordered the same serial number on all the keys. I find that they unique and plan on having them as a family keep-sake to pass on. My son Justin VA2WTF loves them and sees them as history of CW and something that he wants to pass on to his children someday. They are also nice usable keys, and beautiful show pieces. Morse Express has great service and products. BTW, these keys make nice gifts. They also look good hanging as decorations on the Christmas tree.
