DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
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.

I ordered this alongside the 0.5mm KT, and I can say the exact same things - it's great. One 'gotcha' with the 0.3mm though is that the lead is so thin that the rotation doesn't do quite as much as on the 0.5mm. It still works, though the difference isn't quite as dramatic. I've read that certain types of lead wear more slowly which makes a difference (I have the HB AIN lead currently) so that may help as well.

Purchased for my sister. According to her...USE YOUR OWN LEAD don't use the one that comes with it.
PROs:
- Beautiful engineering
- Lead rotates on it's own!
- Grip A++ feels nice in my hand

CONs:
- The lead that comes with it is not conductive to my writing style. It breaks every three letters.

Fan. Tastic.

I never noticed before owning this pen that I actually developed a twitch wherein I would manually rotate my pencil every word or so to avoid an ultra-sharp point on the lead. I have to train myself out of that habit with the kuru toga, because my manual rotation keeps the pencil from doing what it says it will. However, with an unmoving hand, this pencil is wonderful. The 0.3 lead has the strength of an 0.7 with a nice, ultra-fine line.
