DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
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.

December 17, 2014
Really nice pencil for class notes, writing and drawing. It is very comfortable and worth its price (though I bought it because it was on sale... $5 was a bit too much), the 'lead rotation' mechanism actually works and is worth a shot.

There's another Kuru Toga ( http://www.jetpens.com/Uni-Kuru-Toga-Auto-Lead-Rotation-Mechanical-Pencil-0.3 -mm-Pink-Body/pd/3214 ) which is more expensive at $7.50 and if you are wondering what are the difference/s, it is only on the pen body design and I found that the grip is slightly more comfortable than this one. But it was not worth the extra dollars for me, this kuru toga is sufficient enough. :3

I was worried about the sticker being a permanent part of the pencil when I ordered this, but thankfully, it came off! I was skeptical that the lead would actually spin enough to stay sharp, but it did!! I am very amazed at this pencil and don't regret buying it. It's replacing all of my other mechanical pencils :) The pink color is perfect and matches all of my other pink pens and tools.
