Shaker Pencils

Description
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)!

See shaker pencils in action in the following JetPens.com TV video!

This was my first Pilot Shaker pencil, and it will always be my favorite.

I had this one for a good 10 months before I bought the Pilot Delful Double Knock Mechanical Pencil and the Pilot Dr. Grip CL Offroader Shaker Mechanical Pencil. While those two pencils were quite great, I found myself coming back to this one. I just felt that this pencil felt more solid in my hands and it could tolerate my heavy pressure against paper. The other two felt more plastic, and I wasn't too fond of that. It's comfortable to last a whole day of average lessons, but kind of uncomfortable if you've been writing a lot all day.

As of now, I've had this pencil for two years, and it's still in excellent condition. I would recommend it to anybody who likes these larger barrel pencils. However, if you're one who prefers thinner barrel pencils and have petite handwriting, this is probably not the best pencil for you.

I wish you could revise reviews here on Jetpens!

Right after sending off my previous review, I found that this pencil actually doesn't advance the lead unless you shake vigorously. Therefore, it won't mess up your pockets unless you're doing some heavy physical activity (jumping and such). You have to shake it with considerable force to make the lead come out, so I don't recommend this for young children.

Also, some more points: the eraser is thin, but long, and the pencil itself is smooth. It doesn't make noises while you write, which is always a plus.

I think.... I think I'm done. Great pencil!

Verified Purchase
After buying and writing with this pencil, I cannot believe how incredibly low-priced it is. It's cheap, but it doesn't look or feel cheap at all. The barrel is very sturdy. The clip is pretty frail and looks like it would come right off with a little abuse. The shaking mechanism works great, but that's also this pencil's downside-- it works even when you don't want it to. I wish there was a mechanism for making the pencil stop advancing the lead, because this pencil will spit out lead in your pocket.

Still, it's a beautiful pencil, and an amaaazing price. I like that the "stardust", the little white particles, are not uniform. It really gives it that finished, galaxy look.

Amazing MP.
For its affordable price, functional technology, and chic design. Its tip is metal & reliable, you can write precisely with minimum effort. The grip is hard rubber, which gives you maximum control & comfort. Clip is firm.

And its design... oh so beautiful. I got Stardust Blue. I just enjoy staring at my Opt MP. This MP makes studying & writing such a fun activity. Great for students, medical professionals, and travelers !!

I ordered a Stardust Blue Opt pencil, and I am in love with it. It's great for taking notes, as the shaking mechanism works great. The lead will retract a little bit once it is pressed on paper, but afterwards it is immobile. It has a nice, heavy feel to it, but it's not tiring. The colour is really nice - looks like a night sky. Sold at a good price, it's a pencil worth buying, especially if you take lots of notes.
