We'll have to disagree about the "little or no value".  I spent a good part
of my life using Morse to make a living (I'm a Master Chief Radioman, US
Navy, Retired) and can send Morse with any implement you wish to name and
some you probably wouldn't even recognize.  

Having said that, my current "weapon of choice" is a British Kent
double-paddle used with an iambic electronic keyer.  

Please show me the "demerit".  Good luck on this one now!

Read about real radiomen at my website, under "Old Navy".
