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 use this pencil exclusively for my Japanese language class. It helps keep every stroke and character uniform. I love this pencil and will purchase another should I ever need to. Highly recommend. I imagine it would be perfect for a math class, or job involving a lot of hand-written figuring.
