Who makes them?
I don't think there's any such thing. A straight key is a straight key - use it with either hand equally
I'm right-handed but have sent a great many times with my left on the same key with perfect results.
...However, there must be a company that makes a left-foot key because I keep reading the mail where someone sends "QLF".
("Who Makes Them") Since When??? The Military J-38 is the standard straight key.
One size fits ALL lefty or righty.
Do yerself a favor and practice sending with either hand.
It's easier than you think.
Same company that makes left handed adjustable wrenches
As well as left-handed screw drivers, pencils and tooth brushes
I have a Nye straight key, custom made AMBIDEXTROUS model.
I figured out my paddles are ambidexterity, simply turn the paddle 180 degrees and key with my left hand held over the top of the paddle. Don't work too well with the straight key.
Maybe a key made in the UK? They drive on the wrong side of the road over there; maybe they work CW on the wrong side of the desk, too.
I get them from the same place as my left-handed monkey wrenches and left-handed tennis racquets.
