How do Shaker pencils work? Just shake the pencil and the internal weight mechanism extends the lead for you! No need to click (though pencil includes this feature)! They are lots of fun to use and are great for students and professionals alike.

A good pencil. For...
A good pencil.
For the price:
Nice appearance. (Brighter than the picture. It looks a little more bluish/tealish in real life).
The shaker function works well. Not too sensitive, lead never comes out in my pencil case or anything like that.
The click has nice pressure to it.
The barrel is medium sized
The guide is long (when I measured, 2.5 millimeters) (which is nice for a pencil you end up waving around all over the place shaking with all your might! But it does help keep the lead stable, which is nice.)
For a cheap grip, it's a good grip.
On the downside:
The nozzle is too long! I feel like my hand is too far away from the paper when I'm writing (especially with the exceptionally long guide!) Total, my hand is always at least 2.5 cm away from the page. Too far for me.
The shaker function is not the smoothest in the world
BUT!!! For this price, it's definitely a nice pencil. I use it all the time in class, and the shaker function is worth so much to me for notes. I love this pencil. I would be sad if I ever lost it.
Definitely worth it.
