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).

Bought this, the roulette...
Verified Purchase
Bought this, the roulette and the high grade for my boyfriend and he loves this one the best. He says the grip makes it more comfortable which makes him prefer using this one even though the other ones are better quality. One big big draw back is that he momentarily lost the top and it became very hard to use. SO WARNING DON'T LOSE TOP. the top is very unique and pushes down in a special way.

So with top far better than the other Kuru Togas for sale on this site...without top it stayed in a drawer. My bf is an engineering student and says that these pencils meet his needs both as an engineer and as a note taker. Says the leads break less and give him a nice even line. he is the envy of all other engineering students. :)
