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!

This pencil works exactly as advertised and wonderfully. The rotation of the lead allows you to write very very tiny characters, provided that short strokes are used. The gears are not noticeable when they engage, much unlike the "high grade" Kuru Toga model. This is an almost ideal tool for those who write super tiny, and it's so fun to use and see the gears spin

I have few brands that are .3mm. Uni prevents breakage. I have experimented with several leads with uni and several leads with different brands. Uni is far the best .3mm mechanical pencil that prevents lead breakage.

the finest line i can find, and now even 0.5 seems huge by comparison. it's very comfortable to hold, and I've used mine so much the paint is wearing off. I will say the auto-rotating thing felt a bit pointless at first, until I had to spend time w a regular click pencil again for a while, and I started getting annoyed at having to click the darn thing all the time. when I wear this one out, I'll definitely be back for a new one.

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.
