DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The Uni-ball Shift Pipe Lock Mechanical Pencil is a visual masterpiece both in design and function. The pencil is targeted at heavy users such as students and designers. It has a unique shift and lock mechanism that allows you to protect the pencil tip during travels. The upper body shifts forward to create a body transformation as it protects the guide pipe and lead from breakage. The pencil also has a nice weight and features a low center of gravity to allow stable writing and reduce hand fatigue. The finely designed grip is etched with many grooves to offer a non-slip grip, and the guide pipe tip allows great visibility. The pencil is available in 0.3 to 0.9 mm sizes and is differentiated by color accents. The upper body is made of plastic while the grip and tip is made of metal. The 0.5 mm line has three extra body colors.

After receipt and use...

After receipt and use of the Pipe Lock pencil for several days, I believe that Uni-ball has a solid winner! The pencil is very well balanced and the knurling on the grip is just about perfect - not too course, not too fine, making it very comfortable for long periods of use. The shift lock mechanism is smooth and flawless, and is extremely useful for those of us that must stick the pencil in our pocket on a regular basis. Very well made!..

Nice pencil. Hefty weight feels good in your fingers. Mechanism for advancing and retracting lead is slightly unusual but works fine.

Very disapointed one week and the 0.9mm peels off very mad with uni but the matte black SHIFT is worth it......

I have four of these (.9, .7, .5, and .3) and they've performed well for me for a couple of years now. I've never broken one, and I'm drawing all the time. Also, because of the metal body they're easy to tell from my pens, which is pretty handy when I'm reaching into a jar full of art supplies.

My one complaint is that the red and the orange (.9 and .7) are too close together in hue to be distinctive.
