This pencil ROCKS. As a college student, having a dependable mechanical pencil
is extremely beneficial. The shaker mechanism in this pencil works very well,
although I have noticed some degradation of sensitivity over time - mind you
this is after a year and a half or so, and having to shake a little harder is
not that big of a deal. People are always amazed at the prospect of a shaker
pencil, so it's a fun conversation starter too!
