DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The Opt pencil is a quality instrument available at a fraction of its potential price. The sales slogan for this line in Japan is "Dress up!", and it was designed to accompany business people and travelers. It features a broad body for an ergonomic hold, a push clip that can be used to clip this pencil onto thicker objects, and a shaker function! This means that you can just shake the pencil and the internal weight mechanism extends the lead for you! No need to click (though pencil includes this feature)!

This pencil is awesome. I have never had a pencil this cheap that is a shaky before. I also like the clip on the top. The grip it's also very very comfortable. And by the way, once more this pencil's price is a super good deal for a shaky.

The shaker mechanism in this pencil is a bit noisy. Even so, it's quite enjoyable to write with. It's a bit fat and has some weight to it, but that makes it feel sturdy in the hand. The clutch seems to be made of brass, so it should last a while. However, the pencil doesn't always dispense the exact same amount of lead when shaken.

I really like this mechanical pencil. It's very elegant. I agree that it's a little on the heavy side, but I'm ok with that. I work in pencil, so I use a B lead and the writing is smooth and "soft". It's quite affordable for such a high-quality pencil -- I have it in 3 designs, love it!
