Isn't She a Beauty?

A Begali "Pearl" with palladium plated base.

I don't know what possessed me. I mean, how many keys does one need?

I've heard that N3ZN keys were excellent keys and I heard that Begali keys were excellent keys and I decided that (despite the cost) that I'd get one of each and compare them.

This is my Begali key. And it's just....gorgeous.

As far as how they work, I can't find a reason to prefer one to the other. They both feel very nice and send smoothly. Well, they do now. I had to update my keyer software before I could send reliably. The dot and dash insertion didn't work correctly, and that was my fault and not the key's.

So, what do you guys think I should do with the keys?
