Uni Kuru Toga Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Clear Smoke (Black)

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 do just love this pencil. You never noticed how much you needed that lead rotation till you switch back to a regular mechanical and can't stand the varying line widths!

Great pencil, very satisfied. I have it filled with Pentel Stein Enhanced Silica Pencil Lead in a soft 4B, and the writing is dark, smooth and satisfying. I have had NO breakage of leads, either. Whether this is due to the pencil or lead, who knows, but I'm not breaking up the duo.
