I absolutely love this...
January 19, 2016
I absolutely love this pencil! It's very nice and pretty to look at. Being left
handed, I've always had the issue of smudging and smearing my writing when using
any type of pencil, and it always makes my work look dirty and messy even when
the handwriting is neat. I don't have those problems with this lead pencil
however! Writing rarely smears, even when I drag my hand over the words because
the lead tip never becomes too sharp or too dull. Of course, I am also using the
Uni Kuru Toga Lead, so that probably helps too. I've also experience no lead
breakage whatsoever with this. It's absolutely amazing, and since buying this
pencil four months ago, I've only had to replace the lead ONCE when the single
lead piece ran out. Now that's amazing.
Even if I rotate the pencil myself (which apparently I do automatically after
each word, never realized it before using this pencil), the mechanism makes
everything so much easier and my writing look all the better for it. I've also
dropped this pencil numerous times already, and yet it still works great. My
only complaint is that the pencil is just a bit too thin and narrow for me to
have a comfortable grip. My hand gets tired easily when writing because of it. I
did end up buying the Uni Alpha Gel Kuru Toga mechanical pencil, which I've
found is much more comfortable to write with. Nevertheless, if you're trying out
a new kind of mechanical pencil, I definitely recommend this one to start with!
