You seem to be able to get the blank blade online for less than a tenner such as here:
and assume that I could get that cut at any decent key cutter to match the one I do have?
However if it isn't 'dumb' I guess I am at the mercy of the dealer to have something programmed? Can anyone advise me please?
Have attached a picture of my key so you can see what I mean. Many thanks for your help.

All the twiddly bits are in the fob so a cut spare blade is all you'll need.

Incidentally, have tracked down someone who can supply the new key blade I'm after but they aren't local (nobody local seems to have the blade that fits inside the fob, just whole keys) so they are asking for the key code to cut it from and then send it to me.
Have dug through the paperwork that came with the car I came across a white sticker headed 'Ford Keycode security' with a Unit type and a serial number, along with 'Key Code' in a box with a 4-digit number. Is that the key code or does this relate to a radio security code? Help always appreciated. Thanks

Some eBay sellers can cut from a photo apparently.

I have seen ebay people that cut from photo but they only sell complete keys rather than the blade that fits inside the fob - very infuriating! Looks like I need to start punting around more locksmiths to see what they will do.

That seller offers to cut them to code, but I don't have the code! Aaarrgghh.
Do dealers charge just to tell me my key code (car not from dealer)?

Pity you're not in the south west as I have details of a local auto locksmith that cuts own bought keys with no trouble at all (he did my self acquired flip key).
