Bramah Key with Cap
Bramah key, with cap.
Bramah keys are equipped with a protective cap to keep,
e.g., pocket lint from collecting in the notches. (Apparently,
this practice dates back quite a while; Dickens
mentions "a Bramah key with a small plug... to keep
the dust out" in the Pickwick Papers.)
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.
