The keys are French-Style (pointed) key arms for even pad distribution and more effective pad sealing. "French Pointed Key Arms" - basically this means that the key has a pointed "arm" extending to the center on the pad cup - it is soldered on to the middle of the cup rather than made in one piece or soldered to the edge. This form of construction is thought to be stronger and more stable: the key is pressed in the center of the key rather then the edge.
