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.

Works for writing with a harder lead, where you are pushing down
If you are drawing with a softer lead then there is not enough pressure to make the lead do it thing and rotate
So drawing with a 2B I still get the elongated lead like regular pencils
Disappointed but only $5 disappointed

I already own one and bought this one for my dad who does a lot of crosswords. Such a smooth writing pencil! I love the rotating lead! I don't do a lot of writing in pencil but I do want to buy another one just to have as an extra. Don't think I'll ever buy another mechanical pencil!
