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.

Love this pencil! Lines...

Love this pencil! Lines are always smooth and even. The lead that is included is excellent and almost never breaks. I use this pencil every day in class and it is perfect. I switched to this from the Zebra Frisha Automatic pencil and I was fed up with how often the lead jammed in that one. I have had no problems with this pencil and receive a lot of comments on it.

The eraser is very small and ran out quickly. Oh and don't lose the eraser cap because you won't be able to advance the lead without it

I wanted to love this after watching the video about 5 times. The pencil is nice, a tad big thick for me, but manageable. What I did not like, at all, about this was the eraser. I took the cap off to use the eraser and it fell out as did the lead right behind it. When I secured the lead in the feed, just the eraser fell off. So I cannot take that cap off to erase, will have to keep my eraser on the desk with me when in class. I have to investigate and see if Uni Kuru Toga has a 0.2 ...
