Brand new, the Handcuff Key. Jim's miniature marvel is based on a genuine handcuff key, that is, a key for unlocking handcuffs. Precision machined and perfectly balanced, the Handcuff Key is a pure delight to use, and a real conversation starter. In earlier versions as shown above, Jim ground off the tension adjuster at the end of the key. Current production keys have the tensioner as shown below.
