    Thanks,Paul!
    I would be happy to offer a lower price, but the manufacture of such a key takes about 50 hours.

    After receiving this paddle, I have to say it is a beautiful, well made heavy iambic paddle with a great feel to it. The you tube video above shows is sliding a little when Val was keying on it but I believe that may have been before he put the rubber mat on the bottom because I am having no issue with the paddle moving. I am very happy to add this RA1AOM paddle to my collection and will probably end up adding one of his bugs and single lever paddles to my collection in the future as well.

    I agree. I just received one of Val's 'works of art'. It looks very much like the one in his posted images above.

    Since I've been down with a cold this last week or so I haven't spent as much time playing with it but it has a wonderful feel and is a pleasure to operate with. Mine also came with a thin rubber mat on the bottom. Doesn't move a mm. I'm not a collector but I can see why some ops consider this a collector piece. Fine work!
