I'm currently in school...
December 14, 2015
I'm currently in school and take a lot of notes by hand, this is my favorite
pencil for lectures and writing notes.
It has a really nice weight to it, I don't find that it tires my hand after long
writing sessions, and the lead sleeve does a good job at preventing lead
The locking mechanism is fun to play with in class, but the lead advances every
time you unlock the mechanism so watch out for that.
Other shaker pencils I've had before extend the lead too far, causing breakage,
however this extends the lead just the right amount.
The eraser lasts a really long time and it's really good job at its job. I can
see it lasting a full school year (8 months), and I use it a lot. Pick up a pack
of eraser refills and you won't have to worry about it for a really long time.
The black part at the top of the pencil (where the eraser is stored) comes
completely out when refilling lead, so you can still refill and use the pencil
without worrying about the eraser being too short and getting stuck.
I've had this pencil for quite a while now and haven't had any of the problems
the other reviewers were having about it getting damaged. Aside from one scuff
mark, the color of the body and transparent part seem very resistant to
scratches. You can also remove the sticker with the bar code with no troubles.
