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.
