Looking as though it has traveled the world in the backpack of an intrepid explorer, this keyboard is crafted in polished brass, then artificially tarnished. The slightly weathered keys are quite striking against the aged leather faceplate and parchment key inserts.

For those of you coming to this page from a Warehouse 13 Google search, this is the exact keyboard model seen on Artie's desk in SyFy Channel's "Warehouse 13" show.



Polished Brass Sojourner Keyboard

 

 

 


"Antiqued" Sojourner Keyboard



Several of the keys have hairline cracks running through the lenses and the spacebar has a few intentional dings and scratches to make the keyboard seem more authentically aged.



The brass has a rich brownish gold patina, but still retains a subtle gloss.




The F and J keys are intentionally cracked in order to act as "locator keys" for touch typists. The F and J keys on most keyboards have a small plastic nub molded in them for this purpose.




Here is a screen shot of this keyboard on the desk of "Artie" in the SyFy Channel show, "Warehouse 13"
