DescriptionSpecifications
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.

Best. Ever.

I am a super-duper pen/pencil snob, which I'm sure you can relate with (since you shop at Jetpens). I have a shoebox of expensive pencils, all for different tasks, for different moods, etc. But, this is the one I keep coming back to. My cheap, no-frills Kokuyo FitCurve. The eraser is sturdy, and it is so smooth to write with. I love the thickness - it's not too thick, not too thin, and it has just the right amount of softness so my hands don't cramp up if I write for long periods. This is the pencil my students try to steal from me during lab time, and I have to keep an eye on it so it doesn't walk away. If you want a great all-around pencil that will LAST, this is the one to buy.

WOW
This pencil is awesome. The eraser I LOVE. It's twist up, and it erases amazingly. It does feel weighted near the bottom, which makes you press down not as hard and it stays more comfortable in your hand. The grip is very nice though its not very squishy, it is very comfortable. I could write for hours with this pencil.

I love this pencils'...

I love this pencils' eraser as much as the pencil itself. The weight balance is perfect for kanji writing although it isn't too heavy, and it erases leaving no mark on the paper whatsoever. I had to look closely to see where I had written anything before, and this is a first for me. The eraser twists up until nearly the end of the eraser, and the whole end comes out to reveal a neat hiding place for the lead. It doesn't all spill out everywhere like cheaper mechanical pencils. The grip is not too squishy, and has a lovely glisten to it, like a blue tinted pearl white. I have no complaints of it whatsoever.

Great, smooth writing pencil. The eraser is solid and twists out, so it's very practical. Also, the eraser works well at removing pencil marks.

The grip on this pencil is smooth, but not too squishy. I like how the pencil is weighted in your hand---very ergonomic without sacrificing looks. The color of the pencil is nice as well. I prefer bright colors, but this is a nice seafoam green that I can live with. A nice addition is that the eraser color matches the body color of the pencil. extra cute!
