I've been using this...
, December 7, 2010
I've been using this pencil for a while now and I love it.
The weight feels just right in my hand and it write very smoothly. I sometimes
forget the 'Shaker' feature and forget to use it, but its a neat feature to the
MY only teeny gripe with the pencil is the whole eraser mechanism is kinda
weak....there is a lot of play in the mechanism holding the eraser. When I try
to erase something, the eraser just isn't sturdy, it wobbles a lot and I end up
having to eraser harder. In the end I just dig out my Art Gum and keep that
handy instead of using the pencil's eraser. I'm assuming this is happening
because of the 'Shaker' feature, but I could be wrong.
OTHER then that, the pencil feels very durable, comfortable and i like the
orange color alot, I just ordered another one today...=)

I bought this pencil a while ago when I was in Japan. I paid about $12 and fell
in love with it. Easy to use, functions well. Nice grip, and weighted perfectly.
Sadly mine was ruined when something spilled in it. I really want another one
but every time I come here it is sold out. Get some more in stock so I can buy

This pencil is very good...
, October 5, 2010
This pencil is very good to hold- during the class, I can write as twice as much
of notes than usual. The balance is really good. As one reviewer noted, the
shaker is kinda weird. You do have to shake it strong so that the lead comes
out. There's apparently a way to make a lead go out easier using the shaker
thingy. I found that if you hold it parallel to the floor and shake it
right-left, then the lead advances better than when the pencil is in
perpendicular position to the floor which is truly weird 0_o . When you erase
with the pencil be sure not to break the lead that came out from the pencil,
cause once I was erasing stuff and I saw a 1.5 inch lead pointing out- thanks to
my care, I didn't break the lead. The button is VERY easy to press. I haven't
had such a soft button on my pencil in my life.
Overall the pencil is perfect, except the shaker, which has to be modified.

I have to change my review to 5 stars!!
This pencil is way better than I initially thought. Its extremely comfortable
and after it sat around for a while, I picked it up and have been using it ever
since, its just comfortable to hold and use. The look still is a bit funky, but
functionality makes up for it, and I still love the clicker lead advance on this
pencil, so smooth you will not find a better lead advance.
I think I may have to purchase a few more of these.
| Cool pencil with some...

Cool pencil with some nice surprises.
The Shaker mechanism I was disappointed with, you really have to shake this
thing hard, I was hoping some light shakes by the paper would get me some lead,
so that you could virtually just keep writing, but you do really need to give it
a good shake (could be dangerous in the wrong hands :D or if there are other
people around you)
That being said, you can just use the lead advance which is ULTRA smooth, I mean
its like feather touch and youve got lead, I have not experienced a pencil that
was that easy to click, and the ergonomics of the clicker is a welcome change
from the standard lead advance.
Lock feature is nice and it has a hefty weight to it, my only complaint is that
the shaker feature is pretty useless (sorry, its just not practical) and the
looks are not the best for me. I prefer the Staetler 925-05 however I do like
the weight and fatter grip of this pencil more, I just keep going back to that
This however is a very nice pencil
