DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
The FitCurve is a comfortable and high-quality line from Kokuyo that was requested many times from our customer because of its natural grip, balanced body weight, pearlescent body sheen and smooth writing. Based on ergonomic research, the center of gravity of the pen is located near the natural grip location, reducing \"hand wobbling\" that can cause fatigue. The body shaft measures 10 mm in diameter, thinner than standard ergonomic pens to account for how the pencil is used when at a tilt. Apparently, when instruments are held at a 30° tilt, 1.15 times the diameter is experienced in the hand. Therefore, the FitCurve is designed thinner so that it can have a 11.5 mm diameter feel when in use. The pencil features a generously sized eraser that can be rotated out for use. Eraser refills also available.

I bought this pencil...
May 14, 2011
I bought this pencil hearing that it reduces cramps and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

- Doesn't cramp your hands (even though the grip is pretty hard like other reviewers mentioned)
- Doesn't look cheap
-Very comfortable weight (not too heavy, not light at all) - great for spinning around
-Writes very smoothly (almost like you're gliding across the paper)
-Twist eraser (it's actually a very long eraser that works great)
-Nice price for a Niiiiiiiiice pencil

- Isn't slim, like most of the pencils I prefer to use, but it's not too thick either. So I can live with it.
-The refill erasers don't match the pencil color as nicely as the eraser that came with it, but it hardly matters.
-Grip is harder than I normally prefer, but it's still very comfortable which is remarkable.

Would I recommend this to my friends and others?
heck yes! this pencil is great for those who write a lot because it's very comfortable.

This pencil is great!...

This pencil is great! ;). Although the grip is very hard, I feel very comfortable when using the pencil. The twisty eraser feature is awesome, and the lead advancement is very smooth. The center of gravity is truly evenly distributed, and it feels like you are flying across the paper. The grip is hard, but it's comfortable when writing with a proper hand placement. There's nothing big about the clip, but it does its job.

I have several great mechanical pencils (but nothing expensive, just fun), but now find myself reaching for this one first. I think it's because it rests in my hand so nicely and is also so lightweight. I am buying another one.

Only complaint is that...

Only complaint is that the grip is a little hard. Smooth, but hard. The pencil is pretty good value and normal size. The eraser size is pretty good too. Recommend it for big-handed people.

I bought both this pencil...
September 9, 2015
I bought both this pencil body and the light blue pencil body several years ago. I use both with 0.5 leads (this one with B graphite lead, the light blue with the ever-elusive 0.5mm light blue lead) and they are the only pencils I carry with me any more. The grip is soft but not squishy and fits well into my hand. The pencil is very comfortable even with hours of use (drawing) and the clip keeps it from rolling. The tip is retractable so it fits in my pen cases better without worrying about damage. But the absolute best part is the eraser. Even after several years of using these pencils, I still have more than half of the incredibly long eraser left. The eraser twists out from the top and is a nice, fat round eraser that picks up graphite well, and is SO SUPER LONG!

The only downside to these pencils is that after several years the grips do get a little dirty, but all in all that's a minor complaint.
