Kokuyo Coloree Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Blue - KOKUYO F-VPS103B
  I got this same exact..., January 29, 2014
I got this same exact pencil years ago from a math center I went to for tutoring. This pencil is pretty good and I really like how the twist eraser matches the barrel color. It also erases pretty well! But I can never find a replacement eraser for this pencil... I just don't like how the lead tends to keep breaking in this pencil.
Pilot AirBlanc Mechanical Pencil - 0.3 mm - Violet - PILOT HA-20R3-V
  I was given this pencil..., January 4, 2012
I was given this pencil several years ago on my birthday. I love the 0.3mm size lead which allows me to write small and neatly especially in large packets for my AP classes. The lead doesn't break to easily compared to some other pencil I got from K-Town several months back... The eraser works well too, but I'd recommend getting a hand-held eraser.
Pilot Opt Shaker Mechanical Pencil - Series I - 0.5 mm - Carbon Black Body - PILOT HOP-20R-CB
  I got this pencil several..., January 4, 2012
I got this pencil several months ago from a friend. It has been awhile since I've had a shaker pencil. My Pilot Dr. Grip shaker pencil I had since Freshman year broke. The construction of this pencil is fairly sturdy and the shaker piece works smoothly. The built of this pencil reminds me of a Papermate pencil I've had before, due to the same type of grip.

For a cheap shaker pencil, this is a really good one although, I wish the slider/push button thingy at the top can lock the shaker like other shaker pencils.
Uni Style Fit 3 Color Multi Pen Body Component - Silver - UNI UE3H208.26
  I was gifted this pen..., January 4, 2012
I was gifted this pen body a few months back. I have used the pen as sparingly as possible but even so, the body easily cracks near the twist to open it. The bottom gets slippery easily too, but it is easily fixed if you have a spare grip from a Pilot Dr. Grip pen/pencil.

I like how the cartridges don't rattle when they are clicked or when you write. Unfortunately, with the mechanical pencil cartridge, I feel that the pressure exerted to push the lead out is too strenuous for the cheap, plastic pen body. I love Uni stationary, but it's hard when the pen body keeps cracking.
