Convenient chalk holder keeps hands free from dust. Holder includes a magnet to attach onto steel surfaces. Extend chalk with a click of the top.

The manufacturer of this product, Japan Rikagaku Industry, was established in 1937 on the belief that every human being needs to “be loved, be useful, be praised and be needed”. The company chose to manufacture chalk made from calcium carbonate because there was an indication that teachers who used chalk had a higher probability of tuberculosis than others. In 1953, the resulting dustless chalk was the only one approved by the Educational Ministry of Japan. In their two factories, Rikagaku employs people often overlooked by society. In the Kawasaki factory, there are 48 employees in total: 22 severe mentally-disabled people and 9 mildly mentally disabled people. In the Misaki factory, there are 28 employees in total: 13 severe mentally-disabled people and 9 mildly mentally disabled people. The company has a model blend of environmental and people friendly management policies.

Question: Are the people who are reviewing using the Rikagaku Dustless Chalk for this holder? Or are you using standard chalk? It would probably slide if you are not using the chalk that the holder was made for.

I don't know why anyone would give this product a bad review. I've been using it for over 6 months and I just love it. I write so much better with it, it's easy to use, and holds the chalk extremely well (I use the same brand of chalk). I highly recommend this product.

EXCELLANT holder. Works perfectly if you use the Rikagaku chalk. I find using the holder my writing is much clearer and neater. I highly recommend this holder, and don't know why other people were complaining about it other than possibly they were trying to use different chalk in it.

I love this product and am so happy that I decided to purchase it! When I received it in the mail, it was actually bigger than I had imagined it would be, but that was a good thing! The chalk inside is definitely better quality than your "run of the mill" American made chalk and is certainly a different size. The diameter of these chalks are about 1.5 times larger than standard chalk (approximately), which helps to keep the chalk from snapping in half in the middle of your lecture. The chalk holder also helps prevent the previously mentioned problem as well! This product, when used in conjunction with the chalk that was designed for it, is an absolute must for any teacher, lecturer, or tutor who still has to use chalk boards. The only *comment* that I have is about the chalk advance button at the top - it is not like a mechanical pencil that dispenses out a given amount of chalk with each push, but is spring loaded and can shoot out really fast if one isn't holding it in the right orientation.

On another note, as previous people have mentioned and the description of the product says, the company that makes these is absolutely amazing. The company is built on a solid business model that promotes environmental responsibility and, more importantly, equal opportunity. To be honest, the fact that the majority of employees in this company are mentally disabled was the major selling point for me. I wanted to give my money to a business that actually cares about its employees and helps provide challenged individuals with an opportunity to feel validated and important in society.
Buy this product, not just because its great, but also because the company that makes it is great as well!

I have it for a few years, proud owner of the best chalk holder. It is my only tool for sketching murals on the wall. It is very comfortable, dustless, neat, strong, sticks to the ladder (magnet), love it.
