    Yes, I have one.

    It also has an excellent feel, with the contact strike damped.

    The pivot at the distal end gives it the action of a much larger key and the plastic
    base on which the lower contact rests absorbs shock.

    Carmen--

    My key was purchased from Marshall Emm several years ago. Marshall is SK but his
    website is still up. I don't know whether Marshall's family or another party is continuing
    the business. Current URL: http://www.morsex.com/keys.htm

    From the website:
    "The Schurr MMK has been reincarnated as the Scheunemann Kleine Handtaste or "Small Hand Key.""

    I also have one of these neat little keys, and I also purchased it from Marshall Emm several years ago.

    I found out a couple of months ago that they had some remaining stock of various things, and I emailed them to ask if they had any 2020 Christmas keys. They did, and I was able to buy one. I believe they will answer an email inquiry about remaining stock.

    I believe Vibroplex picked up the US dealerships for GHD and Hi-Mound, which Morse Express used to carry, but I don't think there is a US dealer for Scheunemann.
