This sleek drafting pencil is the first of its kind to offer BOTH a shaker AND a click lead extension function! Just twist the ring above the grip to point to "lock" to use the pencil as a normal click advance drafting pencil. Unlock the body and it becomes a shaker pencil that you can shake to extend lead automatically! The lead advances through an internal weight mechanism that extends lead upon movement. Pencil features a fixed guide pipe length, metal clip and ribbed plastic grip.

I own both this pencil and the all metal version of it. I like this pencil quite
a bit (I have stopped calling every new pencil I get my favorite). The pencil
feels quite good in the hand and writes well. I really like the fact that the
shaker mechanism can be locked. I must offer a piece of advice though: When
unlocking or locking the the shaker mechanism always hold the pencil by the
grip. I was holding it by the upper barrel and it broke in half after only 3
days of use. I e-mailed Zebra and they told me that since this pencil isn't sold
in the U.S. that they couldn't help me. I e-mailed Jetpens and they sent me a
new one free of charge (including free shipping). This is a great pencil and is
a joy to use.
I bought this to replace a staedtler 925 which jammed and died, and it's served
me well. It's got a mostly plastic construction and does feel a little flimsy at
times, but it hasn't shown any major signs of wear after a year of pretty much
constant usage. The shaker and click mechanism feel solid, and I haven't yet had
issues with jams etc. A good little pencil overall.
I bought this pencil After purchasing and orange Zebra 2way 1000. I liked that
pencil and I liked the look of this white one, so I thought, What the heck.....
However after using both pencils daily, I'd use my Zebra 2way 1000 over this
white one any day.
This feels cheap at times, I'm afraid I might break it...whereas when I use my
Zebra 1000, I feel like I could write a novel and it would survive till the
So if you want a sturdy, nice, pencil that you want to LAST, get one of the
