It may take a true pencil expert to understand the common pencil's problem but hang in there as we try to explain. When using standard mechanical pencils, the lead wears down on one side, forming a slanted surface. Each time you write you end up using a different lead surface (pointy, flat, wide, thin, etc.) depending on how you hold the pencil. This can cause multiple annoyances: • You might start with a sharp point, but as you continue to write the point is worn down and thus your line widths are not uniform. This can also lead to smudgy and thick lines. • If you happen to start writing with the tip of the angled point, it is likely to scratch or catch on the paper. • The various angles at which the lead comes into contact with the paper commonly cause lead breakage.

The Kuru Toga, on the other hand, has a core 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 so that it always remains pointed. This is great for students! It not only solves the problems above, but also gives you an amazingly thin line. In effect, you use only 50% of the lead area that you were previously using with your old mechanical pencil.

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.

Easily my favorite pencil,...

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.

This is a perfect product for beginners using a 0.3 mechanical pencil. This product was my first one and I still have it. This pencil is wonderful and it's the main reason why I cannot and will not write with a 0.5 or a 0.9 mechanical pencil. I love writing small and this pencil does a good job doing so. I advise you to buy it. You will not regret it.

Very happy with this pencil. I have a couple of other 0.3mm pencils, but I seem to break the lead quite often with those. Not with this one (so far). And I don't think this one has harder lead, as it writes a nice dark line. My handwriting's pretty small, so a nice thin lead pencil like this is great!
