Bramah Lock Core and Key

Bramah core and key. The key notches mate with corresponding sliders in the core; when the correct key is pushed into the core, a notch in each slider is lined up at the shear line, which allows the core to rotate with respect to the sliver ring.

Image taken with a Nikon D-100 digital camera with a Nikkor 85mm 1:2.8D tilt/shift macro lens (with Kenko extension tube). Lit by electronic flash and various reflectors.
