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.

This pencil does exactly as advertised. The lead rotates so smoothly you don't even notice it, and the point is always sharp. It's easily the best mechanical pencil I've ever used, and I can't see myself ever using another.

Until I lost, this was a fantastic pencil. One would think that the main feature of this pencil is pointless with this tip size, but it is still nice to have a constant sharp point every time I write.

Ever since I tried these pencils I write with nothing but these. If you like fine and sharp writing you'll love it! I do lots of Math and diagrams sketching so it gets a lot of use and it's as good as new.

It's now second only to the Uni Kuru .5 pencil. Smooth. Really like the auto rotate of the lead. Feels good in my hand and holds up well on long drawing stints.

Excellent pencil. Very light in the hand for rapid writing. Sharp lead with each stroke.
