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 white 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.

Love this pencil, glad I purchased it. Great for writing notes, it's almost like using a roller ball pen.

Easily my favorite pencil, hands-down. The fine point is perfect for a biochem student (and also, I hear, for classics majors with a lot of tiny annotating to do), and the heft and grip are comfortable for long periods of scribbling.

My only complaint is that this pencil does not seem to handle the ends of lead very well; quite a bit is wasted at the end, compared with traditional (non-rotating) clutch 0.3mm pencils.

Nice feel to write and draw with, I haven't noticed a difference with the lead rotation but I wanted a finer pencil anyway so it's still nice.
