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.

I really enjoy using this pencil. The locking mechanism is tight and sturdy and the grip is just right concerning the roughness. The finish of the white is basically flat - no gloss or shine what so ever, so it tends to get dirty quite easily. The clip is very sturdy and clips onto my shirt pocket with a "snap" so I know I won't easily loose this gem.

All in all a good buy. You won't be disappointed.

I've been using this pencil daily for half a year now, and it is by far my number one favorite pencil to use. My other Uni alpha gels are untouched because of this. The writing is always precise and sharp, the mechanism to retract the tip is genius, and it is heavy! I would have to say this is one of the few pencils that is worth every penny of the 15 dollars that I paid.

Well I bought the black pipe shift pencil and they're very well made and reliable! Since most people would buy the black one because it won't get dirty as easy the white one looks a lot better than the black one when you get it, it looks three times better than the picture on the page! But the best part is the grip... your fingers won't slide when you use it (even though the grip looks hard and uncomfortable) it is very comfortable. So take my word for it you should get one!!!!

P.S. They are worth it!!!!!!!!

If you're someone who holds their pencil very close to the tip, this pencil may not be for you.

As advertised, there's a distinctive weight difference as the body is a light (but sturdy) plastic while the grip is metal. The low center of gravity is not bad, but those with a definite preference for lighter tools should take note. You potentially will have to change the way you write / draw in order to take advantage of this feature. Otherwise, fatigue will be inevitable as your muscles will try to make up for the unbalanced weight.

That being said, one of the most notable aspects of this pencil is the length of the knurled grip. It's about 1/4 inch longer than any other pencil I know of and it feels great. I wish all pencils had this length.

The unique retractable mechanism feels study and tight. Not sure if that might change with heavy usage, but for now, it works well. There are instructions on the side and it takes three different actions to lock and unlock the pencil. This pattern takes some getting used it.

Overall, a very sleek and solid tool. Would definitely recommend it for those who like retractable pencils.
