  I am very fond of Japanese..., February 15, 2012
By agl...
I am very fond of Japanese office products. Often when I visited Japan and certainly when I lived there for extended periods, I would come back to the US with a stash of new things: small staplers, notebooks, mechanical pencils, pencil cases, etc..

This twist eraser aroused my curiosity and has a number of positive features. It is compact. It erases cleanly. Refills are available. It is not absurdly expensive. I suppose if I wanted to attach it to something the strap might be useful. I make too many mistakes to want to bother attaching and detaching an eraser. Do I regret that I bought it? No. Would I buy another one? Probably not. Although it is compact, this is only because it is short. It is about as big around as a more "conventional" eraser stick. I don't find the level of control over what I erase to be as good as with a Sanford Tuff Stuff Eraser Stick. The Tuff Stuff Eraser is tapered at the tip (like a mechanical pencil) so you can actually see where the eraser is, unlike with this one where the holder/case tends to obscure where the actual eraser and the many corners are. I don't own one yet, but the Tombow Mono Zero line is what seems to come closest to the Sanford eraser. For more extensive erasing I prefer the Rotring Tikky Eraser which advances the eraser stick and at least used to be made in Japan. The Pentel Clic Eraser series has one version that has a flat metal case with a rectangular eraser that is useful for erasing ink, but might fit some pencil erasers with a similar form factor.

So, not a bad product by any means, but perhaps too much on the cute novelty side for me and not quite as well suited to my own needs as other products on the market, and other products available at this site.

This eraser is the cutest. It is ultra convenient, as I keep it secured to my pencil case. It is perfect for professor who can't decide how to define something, and I have to quickly change it in my notes before he moves on! Not to mention, the shape is great. Organic chemistry is where I use this the most, as sometimes I just need to erase a single line without messing up a huge drawing. I love these!

i bought this a couple months ago, and i dont regret it.
this eraser is SO CUTE :) (and convenient, as it has that portable strap-thing)
it's size is about the length of my thumb, maybe longer.
i use this to correct tiny mistakes in my artwork, and it makes erasing less tedious.

This is wonderful for fine erasing in drawing projects. There's always a point, so it's really good for precision.

Once again, Kokuyo as outdone themselves~. I Love this product, it's very cute. Plus it's able to slip-knot onto zippers, and key-chains. You can even put it on your cell-phone. The top twists off, so there's no worry about loosing your eraser, just in case it gets maybe caught on something. The Eraser quality is also very good. And leaves no trace of pencil marks. (Measurements: 2 1/2 inches tall.)

Love it! It takes just a bit of practice, but you can use the corners for erasing small details in pencil (like the highlight on an eye) and use the edge to erase/negatively draw lines.
