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 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. Thus, a 0.3 mm Kuru Toga writes incredibly thin lines and have less breakage than a standard 0.3 mm mechanical pencil. In addition, the rubber grip is easy on the hands and lets you write comfortably for long periods of time. This is great for students!

Dimensions: 5.7 inches length, 0.4 inches diameter (14.5 cm length, 1.0 cm diameter).

This is my third type of Kuru Toga, I've had the plastic one, and the roulette model. This is the best by far, the grip is amazing. If I had one gripe, I would have liked a metal clip. Other than that though, I'd go as far as to say it's one of the best pencils ever.

My goodness, I don't think I've seen a better Kuru Toga. I mean, it works just as well as any other Kuru Toga, but I think the price and the rubber grip make this pencil better then the rest.

I agree the last reviewer...not sure why but this pencil is actually really nice. The itself weighs virtual nothing but the rubber grip actual feels rather nice. The lead is incredible smooth. Nice pencil. I'm certain I will purchase more of these in the future.

This is a fine implementation of the Kuru Toga. The rubber grip is a step up from the base model. I had an extra clip for the fisher space pen that slipped into place without much difficultly. Just hand pressure was needed to expand it to fit the slightly larger diameter of the Kuru Toga. I would have given it a five star if they included a clip.

It's probably better then the Uni Alpha Gel Kuru Toga. The only con is that it's not clippable. It's fine with the plastic body since there's more balance from the metal/aluminum/etc. on the bot. It just NEEDS a metal clip. Then it will be a great seller.
