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.

This is a good basic...

This is a good basic pencil, but the auto lead rotating mechanism is not as impressive as it advertises itself to be. The idea is that when you write, the pressure from pushing down on to the paper loads a little spring, and then when you lift the pencil from the paper, the spring releases and rotates the lead a little bit. But, I found that I write too lightly for the mechanism to work. Also, one thing I recently noticed that I never noticed before is that when I write, my fingers already rotate the pencil anyway. This is a habit I developed over years of using 0.3mm pencils.

If you've been using a 0.3 pencil for a while, you probably already write very lightly and rotate the pencil, so this pencil does not do anything that you don't already. This is a nice gimmick but my recommendation is to go for a nice ergonomic design, something that doesn't jam very often, and if so is easily serviceable. This pencil at least feels comfortable to write with and is fairly light.
