Uni-Ball Pipe Lock Pencil Review
You can certainly pay more for a worse pencil. The Pipe Lock is usually sold
While it doesn’t seem to create any immediate problems beyond those of preference, the plastic upper half of this pencil is lightweight and will not last as long as aluminum or similar metals. The lower half of the body is well constructed and a pleasure to hold, however.
The Uni-Ball Pipe Lock has a very cylindrical build that sits nicely in the hand. The aluminum knurl is well made, and the plastic upper half is a dull matte that is smooth to touch. The pencils retractable tip mechanism is satisfying to work with, and the pencil is bottom heavy.
The Pipe Lock Pencil is really great to use. When writing or drawing the pencil creates steady consistent lines in a very smooth manner. The retractable tip allows you to keep the tip safe while it’s in your bag, or to stop yourself getting poked while it’s in your pocket.
