Uni Kuru Toga Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Clear Blue

DescriptionSpecifications
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 pencil has a fixed lead sleeve and ridges in the grip area that support your fingers as you write. The capped eraser is refillable. Three Nano Dia HB leads are included. Nano Dia is Uni's line of diamond-infused leads that are particularly strong and resist breakage.

I enjoy drawing with this pencil because the rotation allows me no to have the deep scratches of the lead into the paper. Very comfortable in hand and light :)

Love the pencil rotation, as an accountant, this pencil keeps going. I keep forgetting that I need to continuously click the top to release more lead and that really upsets me. I need to stop my train of thought to push the lead. If they included a side button to release the lead or shaker feature I would truly love this pencil.
