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.

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.

This is an awsome pencil!!! I love very thin lead, and usually .3 lead has a tendency to break easily. Not with this pencil! even the cheap lead stays sturdy because of the pencils unique design. its my favorite pencil ever!!! just one thing, buy extra erasers: they wear out and you'll wanna use this pencil a lot!

When I bought this mechanical...
July 15, 2015
When I bought this mechanical pencil for the first time i was really excited to use it! till i opened it and started writing with it and noticed that the lines kept getting thicker and i was confused as to why the led wasn't rotating and realized after pressing the led down harder and harder to the paper that thats when the led would rotate. I am someone who writes with very little pressure out of habit so i was upset about that :( but when im in class and i have to make fast notes to where i put a lot of pressure on the pencil itll rotate as long as i lift my pencil of the paper (which i dont a lot) my hand writing is kind of mixed with cursive. SO! probably watch the way you write for a bit and notice any writing habits you ave before you order this pencil! on the bright side its nice to watch the little gear inside rotate :)
