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 body design features a lovely metallic body with white clip, giving the pencil a soft look.

Ridges in the grip area support your fingers as you write, making writing more comfortable. The capped eraser is refillable.

It's neat! It writes a lot finer than regular 0.5mm pencils, and the design itself is very nice and lightweight. But I think for me, my favorite part is that as you write with the pencil, the little circular kura toga logo in the clear part of the barrel rotates. You can actually see the mechanics in action! Very cool!

The lead rotation mechanism works great and keeps the lead sharp. It's great for writing and doing math problems on small pieces of paper. The grip is minimal, which I like. The space for holding lead could be larger, but it's big enough for me.

The tip of this pencil is beautiful, resembling a technical pen from the old days. Architectural in style with clean lines and not in-your-face fancy, this is what I call a subtle pencil. With softer B leads which I also ordered, it writes distinctly without tearing the paper. Love it! My pencil geek soul has been satisfied.

Love this pencil! The revolving action is very convenient. I've never had a smoother writing experience. You get what you pay for and this pencil was perfectly advertised. The grip leaves a little to be desired if you are using this as a main writing instrument, but the fluidity of it causes little fatigue in the short term.
