I am very fond of Japanese...
February 15, 2012
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.)

This eraser is handy to keep with you if your an artist who always needs a good eraser from time to time. I bought this eraser for my daughter, and it's very convenient for her as far as school and her art work. I have bought an eraser like this for my self, which is handy for my writing. Its a good eraser overall however, it does comes smaller than expected, and the corners make it a little more difficult to erase. But no biggie. I would definitely recommend this eraser for any artist, writer, or even just someone who needs an eracer for school.

An interesting and small eraser that is very well designed, but the eraser quality is lacking. They sacrificed usability for hardness in the eraser and it can't really remove pencil marks cleanly. I did buy it for detail work, but due to the fact it can't handle anything beyond erasing a single letter, I usually don't even take this out of my bag. The design does give you the ability to always have a sharp-ish corner for detail work, but you might get the same result with a small diameter stick eraser of a better quality.

It is a very good design.

This is such a fun eraser to use! The design and color are just too cute. It works very well, and the color from the eraser does not transfer onto paper.

I should note that this eraser cannot be used to erase large areas. It is a more precise eraser used to pinpoint small areas, erase fine detail, or carefully erase things that are close together such as small handwriting. It is a "mini" eraser after all.

This cute tiny eraser is amazing! The aesthetics and size are a very nice touch. The only down side is the flimsy eraser. Other than that, it's definitely worth it.

I have to say, I wasn't really impressed with this eraser. The eraser is really cute, but that's kind of the only thing that's good about it. The erasing quality is really horrible, the same quality as the cheap kinds of pencils with the super hard erasers. I really am not impressed with the quality of this eraser. Also, when you twist the plastic part, it makes a loud squeaking noise. It disturbed the class. I would buy this again if they changed the eraser and fixed the twisting part.
