The Tect 2way now has a lightweight plastic version that is both colorful and functional.
The Tect 2way is a drafting pencil that offers BOTH a shaker AND a click lead extension function! Just twist 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 also features a fixed guide pipe length, clip and ribbed plastic grip.

-This is a really awesome drafting pencil. The construction is weighty and feels
really sturdy; does not have any cheap qualities.
-The lock function on the shaking feature is incredibly handy.
-The metal clip of the pencil is shorter than normal. This means that if you're
one of those people that rotate the pencil in your hand to write on the sharper
edge of the graphite (i.e. me), your hand never hits the clip. So~~~ ingenious.
-When writing, the graphite piece really secure in the pencil's lead
acceleration chamber. Does not feel like it would break easily.
-The color is awesome
this is one of my favorites. the shaking mechanism feel very fluid and honestly
entertains me. there doesnt seem to be much grip, there isnt. the grip does its
main job of keeping your hand from slipping, so thats ok. the click doesnt expel
as much lead as some other brands, but not too little either. its just right.
