I know this question is very similar to GOTO 0's Longest word with adjacent letters on a keyboard, but all the answers to GOTO 0's question had many repeating letters. I need to find a word in this list that all the letters within are adjacent to the next on a QWERTY keyboard layout, that also only uses each letter once.

GOTO 0's keyboard for reference

 ┌───┬───┬───┬───┬───┬───┬───┬───┬───┬───┐
 | Q | W | E | R | T | Y | U | I | O | P |
 └─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┘
   | A | S | D | F | G | H | J | K | L |
   └─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴─┬─┴───┘
     | Z | X | C | V | B | N | M |
     └───┴───┴───┴───┴───┴───┴───┘

    $\begingroup$ Can you define adjacent in this context? For instance are diagonals allowed? $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 20 '20 at 20:34

All I could find were two rather short words:

sawed
trews
