DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
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.

With standard mechanical pencils, as you write the pencil lead is worn down until it is a slanted surface. Each time you write you will get a different experience depending on how the pencil is rotated. This can cause multiple annoyances.

The Kuru Toga, on the other hand, has a core rotation mechanism that continually rotates the pencil lead as you write. The lead is twisted through a spring-loaded clutch, it works by twisting incrementally every time you lift the pencil up (i.e. during printing words, etc). This allows a uniform wearing of the pencil lead so that it always remains as a pointed tip. Not only does it solve the above problems, but it also gives you an amazingly thin line. You are effectively using only 50% of the lead area that you were previously using with your old mechanical pencil.

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.

a pretty great pencil! although the grip isn't as squishy as the uni shaker, it compensates with smooth writing and a grip that's just as comfortable.
