DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Separately, the Alpha Gel and Kuru Toga lines were already popular. Combined, this new pencil is sure to be a big hit. Now you can enjoy the famous break resistant mechanical pencil with the irresistibly soft and squishy Alpha Gel grip famous for keeping an egg from breaking when dropped from a 5 foot height! If you don't know about the Kuru Toga, let us explain.

There's a real problem that affects almost all mechanical pencils. As you use a regular mechanical pencil, the lead wears down on one side, forming a slanted wedge-shaped tip. Each time you put the lead to the page you end up using a different lead surface (pointy, flat, wide, thin) depending on how you hold the pencil. This can cause dramatic and unsightly variations in line thickness as you write or draw.

The Kuru Toga eliminates this problem with the use of an ingenious lead rotation mechanism that continually rotates the pencil lead as you write. A spring-loaded clutch twists the lead incrementally every time you lift the pencil from the paper. This allows a uniform wearing of the lead to create a conical tip shape that provides a fine, consistent line.

I love this pencil. I am a college student who spends a lot of timing writing, so I bought several pencils in my search for an ultra comfortable one. This is by far my favorite! The squishy grip keeps my fingers from getting sore throughout the day. <3

The lead rotates well, the gel is super-comfy and super-squishy, and the eraser cap clicks in without extending the lead.

This pencil is godly and you shouldn't mess with the godly Kuru Toga engine. Now buy it.

I absolute adore this pencil!!! I have always been a huge fan of Uni pencils and they are always my go-to brand for office supplies. This particular pencil has a very nice light pink color and the grip is great! Although not as great as the shaker alpha-gel pencil, it is still extremely comfortable and keeps my hand from fatiguing even after 7 pages of notes. The lead rotation works perfectly. I've had this pencil for a few months now and nothing is wrong with it, i am aware some of the other reviews say the lead get jammed, but if you take care of this pencil, it will take care of you!
I will definitely be ordering another one in the future
