I just bought this, as well as the Pipe Shift Uni pencil. I actually like the
Pipe shift better kind of, it's really close tie.
This pencil is more evenly balanced, and the mechanism that gives a straight
line is really cool. I had to write and pay attention to notice the feature
though, some may not notice it. But you can see the lines are more consistent
The ONLY reason I give it 4 starts instead of 5 is because it's not 100% metal
body, only the bottom half is. And the "nib" is not retractable, though I know
that would be difficult to do since it already has the other mechanism in it.
This is an incredibly solid pencil, and annihilates any other pencil you would
find in the USA (I'm from Indiana) or wal-mart Etc...
I do prefer the Pipe shift for some odd reason though; i think it's a different
concept and I like the fact that I don't have to worry about breaking the nib.
You really can't go wrong with any of these pencils from Uni. I plan to get some
more in different colors, and maybe try out the Pentel graphgear
