I own both this pencil...
, June 14, 2009
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 would consider this...

I would consider this mechanical pencil seriously awesome.
I've been using the same mechanical pencil for more than a year now and it still
functions like new. I don't usually use the eraser that is on the top because
it'll look "ugly" when using it so I use a separate eraser to solve your problem
with the small eraser. So basically, it doesn't really bother me.
Another good use is the shake function. It can be turned on or off however and
whenever you want it to be. I usually turn it off because I'm fine with just
click the pencil from the top. But if someone is quite lazy to click the pencil
from the top, the shake function might be really good for you to use.
The shiny-ness of the metal will wear off (for a really really long time) so it
won't get all rusty and brown (ew haha). After a year of me using the pencil, I
can see the shiny-ness wear off but it's not all the way rusty.
Overall, beautiful, simply color design that is lightweight.
I would defintely buy it haha. But here's a tip :). If you visit Taiwan, or
Japan and find this pencil, you'll find it way less cheaper than here in the
website. I got mine from Taiwan and I got it around $6 ;))). Just a tip. But if
you don't mind paying the extra price, go for it.

"Freedom of choice! The Tect 2way is the first drafting pencil of its kind to
offer BOTH a shaker AND a click lead extension function!"
No so, unless the Pilot Shaker Pencil H-1010 is newer than the Zebra. I had a
Pilot Shaker well over15 years ago! I don't think that the Zebra is that old!
