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.

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

This pencil is the best mechanical pencil I have ever used, it is now my favorite one of all my mechanical pencils. I'm an Artist and I just love this .3mm for very fine lines.

I really like the rotating lead idea.
I have a favorite TWSBI mech. pencil,now if it just had rotating lead like this it would be perfect.
I have an .5mm also and I really like sing them both.
Great idea in a pen.

Does a great job in not having the lead break easily. I have a 0.2 mm lead pencil and as much as I love the precise writing I get out of it, the lead breaks quite easily, so I'm very happy with this construction for the 0.3 mm.

The rotating lead concept is hard to get used to intially. Normally I'd just rotate my pencil manually so that I still get the sharp side, but having the pencil do it for me is, for lack of a better word, nothing short of magical. Having that mechanism along with having it in beautiful precise 0.3 is amazing because my notes look ridiculously neat without all the smudging and everything that normally comes from worn down lead. I wouldn't use this for tests that require you to fill out bubble though, haha. That's about the only downside I can come up with for this beaut.
4.5/5 - My go-to pencil!...

4.5/5 - My go-to pencil! I'm absolutely in love with the Kurutoga. After using this pencil, I don't know if I can ever go back to using the regular ones (despite my past love for the alpha gels or the dr. grip) It's astonishing how I no longer have to habitually rotate my lead pencils so that I could continue writing with a sharp point. 0.3mm seems to be the perfect sweet spot for me. This is the first 0.3 pencil I've owned, and I don't regret it at all!

However, that being said, one slight annoying I found with it is the quality of the paint/colouring (?) on the barrel. I treat all my pencils/stationary with care, but despite that, it's only been roughly 2-3 months, and I'm noticing that some of the blue colouring has chipped off already. If I had known this would happen, I probably would have chosen a different colour that doesn't make it as obvious.
Good ...
