This was my first Pilot Shaker pencil, and it will always be my favorite.
I had this one for a good 10 months before I bought the Pilot Delful Double
Knock Mechanical Pencil and the Pilot Dr. Grip CL Offroader Shaker Mechanical
Pencil. While those two pencils were quite great, I found myself coming back to
this one. I just felt that this pencil felt more solid in my hands and it could
tolerate my heavy pressure against paper. The other two felt more plastic, and
I wasn't too fond of that. It's comfortable to last a whole day of average
lessons, but kind of uncomfortable if you've been writing a lot all day.
As of now, I've had this pencil for two years, and it's still in excellent
condition. I would recommend it to anybody who likes these larger barrel
pencils. However, if you're one who prefers thinner barrel pencils and have
petite handwriting, this is probably not the best pencil for you.
