DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
There's a real problem that affects almost all mechanical pencils—bear with us as we explain. 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.

This body design features a lovely metallic body with black clip, giving the pencil a soft look.

Ridges in the grip area support your fingers as you write, making writing more comfortable. The capped eraser is refillable.

As a university student who likes to sketch, the 0.3 mm along with the rotating mechanism is a godsend in keeping lines thin for writing notes, drawing graphs, crosshatching and sketching, although the tip shifts in a bit every time I write. The shifting is easily negligible for schoolwork and drawing graphs, but it MIGHT bother some users who are sensitive to the shifting tip (I know some people who I think might be bothered by the tip).

The mechanical pencil came with a HB lead inside the pencil and it often scratched the paper I write on. The pencil also feels too "smooth" while writing due to the lead, and changing it to 2B made the pencil perfect (gave some "substance" to the feel of writing and was softer than the HB lead). This may all be just my experience only though.

All in all, an awesome pencil, though a few adjustments may be needed to suit the preferences of each user.

This pencil is awesome. I would recommend it. You can see your lines perfectly, there's no smudging. the only thing though is that I had to buy an eraser, cause the one on the pencil was too tiny for my tastes. other than that I say go for it! It you like to write alot this pencil is for you!

I like this pencil a lot. The mechanism works well. Usually I give 4's to utencils if there are small defects in them, but I am pleased to say that there are none in this. I would encourage people to purchase the Kuru Toga.

By the way, it writes smooth!

Although I haven't had this pencil for long, I can already tell some differences. With other mechanical pencils i used, the led would rather quickly get deformed with obvious differences in line thickness and differences in my handwriting, quickly leading to breakage. However, with the kuru toga pencil I've seem these problems eliminated and the lead hasn't broken once!

Overall, an amazing pencil and worth the money.
