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 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.

This mechanical pencil...
Verified Purchase
This mechanical pencil is ridiculously amazing! I love writing with this pencil more so than the 10+ others I bought from this site. It just doesn't feel the same when my letters turn out ugly or the paper rips due to the sharp lead. But I fear no more! This pencil makes me love writing and IT IS PERFECT for writing 100s of Chinese characters! I highly recommend buying 2-3 of various colors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All I can say is wow....

All I can say is wow. I heard about this pencil on the Minimal Mac podcast, and I decided to give it a try since I have an issue with chiseling lead, even on 0.5 mm lead. The mechanism is very nice; it does exactly what it's intended to do. It's not really that much of a difference in reality, but it just makes writing that much smoother and more even. It won't work miracles, but the benefit is really in the details.

The main feature of this pencil is the auto-sharpening. But it seemed to have a mechanical problem on light use, and I handled it gently.

This design is just so innovative! Who knew that they could design the lead to rotate on its own? I love this pencil. I would like to see it in a 0.7mm as well, but I don't see that available. The eraser is also a bit small for my preference, but that's just me.
