Description
It's going to take a true pencil expert to understand the common pencil’s dilemma but hang in there as we try and explain. With standard mechanical pencils, as you write the pencil lead is worn down until it is a slanted surface. Each time you write you will get a different experience depending on how the pencil is rotated. This can cause multiple annoyances:

1. As you start to write you might have 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.

2. If you pick the pencil up and happen to start writing with the tip of the angled point, it is likely to scratch or catch on the paper.

3. The different angles at which the pencil lead comes in to contact with the paper is a common cause of lead breakage.

The Kuru Toga, on the other hand, has a core rotation mechanism that continually rotates the pencil lead as you write. The lead is twisted through a spring-loaded clutch, it works by twisting incrementally every time you lift the pencil up (i.e. during printing words, etc). This allows a uniform wearing of the pencil lead so that it always remains as a pointed tip. Not only does it solve the above problems, but it also gives you an amazingly thin line. You are effectively using only 50% of the lead area that you were previously using with your old mechanical pencil. Thus, a 0.3 mm Kuru Toga will write incredibly thin lines and have less breakage than a standard 0.3 mm mechanical pencil.

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.

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.

WOW This pencil actually does what it says it does!!
I'm impressed with hoe consisdent the line quality is.
The pencil is light and feels solid during writting.
The grips on the front of the pencil are well made.
I love the see through window that allos you to see the gears moving.

Overall a VERY reliable pencil.

Now, if they would just make one out of all aluminum I would be sooo all over an alunimum one lol

Great pencil! Love using it! Mine's orange, and I love that no one else in the office can mistake it for one of their own boring drab pencils. Auto-rotating lead and a clear mechanism make this a great pencil.
