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 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.

My new favorite pencil!...

My new favorite pencil! I don't think I've ever written with such a SMOOTH pencil. The lead just glides over the paper. The eraser is a perfect size and erases just as smooth as the pencil writes. LOVE the color too! Glad I bought the eraser and lead refills because I don't think I'll be using another pencil - ever!

Works just like all of the other Kuru Toga models out there. Slick barrel which can be uncomfortable. Very light weight. Eraser looks large, but I haven't used it to erase anything. Nice to be able to see the mechanism and the lead count. Perhaps a little greener than the picture.

Uni Kuru Togas are always a favorite of mine, and would normally be 5 stars, but this one is cheaper, and I think there may be a reason. The weight and size are the same as the one from the starter kit and the opaque body styles, but the clear style (I only have one so far) has a small flashing ridge from the mold on the top and bottom of the barrel. That is, directly under the clip and opposite. No matter how I hold it, some part of my hand rubs against it. It's a small detail, but an important one to me. Otherwise, it's as good as the others.
