Reviews Summary for Schurr MMK Medium Hand Key
Schurr MMK Medium Hand Key Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $209.95 (now discontinued)
Description: The Schurr 'MMK Hand Key' is a medium size manual CW key, slightly smaller than the Schurr 'Mahogany Hand Key' but larger than the Schurr 'MINI Hand Key'. The MMK is of all brass construction except for a wooden knob. Unfortunately, like the other Schurr straight (manual) CW keys, the MMK is no longer being manufactured (Aug 2009). The Schurr MMK, along with some other CW keys, was featured on the cover of 'QST' several years past.
Product is in production.

Schurr MMK medium size manual CW key  Time owned: more than 12 months
The Schurr MMK shares the traits common to all the other Schurr manual CW keys :

a.) It is absolutely beautiful (about as close
to a piece of jewelry as can be imagined
for something that is otherwise so totally
utilitarian as a manual CW key)

b.) It was rather expensive (at least in the U.S.)

c.) It is no longer being manufactured (this seems
to be correct although there is at least one
Web Site which casts some doubt)

I first saw a Schurr MMK on the cover of 'QST' (along with some other CW keys) and could not get it out of my thoughts. Within a year or two I went to the Dayton Hamfest and the company that was selling Schurr products in the U.S. at that time (I think they were from Alabama) was there and I bought an MMK.

If it is the finish on the brass of the MMK that makes it look like a jewel then the bearings impart a feeling that a fine piece of laboratory equipment is being handled.
