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 bright metallic body with black clip, giving the pencil a sporty look.

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

Great for hand writing, not so great for drawing. The mechanical twist it offers requires a lot of gentle tapping in succession. That is to say a long line, that would be one depression, would not twist the lead, and you would have a sharp angle on the lead again. Overall I'm very pleased with my Kuru Toga's and I'll be purchasing the model with the gel grip, for handwriting of course.

Always write nice, the mechanism works well.
Even without the lead rotation this would be a great mechanical pencil.

I'm in love with this pencil. I use it every day. It is my default sketch machine.
I pair it with the "Pentel Ain Stein Lead - 0.5 mm - Red" for my roughs.
