Had this key in today, very similar to ERA 7 Guage but it's 6 Guage and the bit is longer than ERA. Cutt it on universal mortice blank but just wonder if there are specific blanks for this key?

Last time had one in   , the universal 6G done the job, but I thought there must be a specific blank for it. 

I will check  Guardian/Imperial blanks next time. 

Thanks for your assistance Rick and Graham..

Though the whole point of this thread was it looks like an era 4g, but it's  not.

This blank always throws me, you automatically reach for era 4g. I cut it on a universal. 

As for a blank, would the manufacturers want to legally do a "fake" key.

If this is the same key I have come across a few times recently, Era viscount looking, approximately 7 gauge etc., when you measure the shaft you will find it is actually oval. The shaft is 7½ gauge across and 7, sometimes even 6½, gauge top to bottom. The bit of the key is usually taller than an Era too.
