DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
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).

I LOVE this pencil! I am tossing all other mechanical's out the window and replacing with this little gem. I don't know how it rotates when writing but it does and it does it so well too. It's great, I love it. I want a purple one. Smiling here.

This mechanical pencil is my new favorite! It is so comfortable in my hands. While using other cheap mechanical pencils, sores form on my fingers, which make it very uncomfortable. This pencil is very stylish: It has a beautiful pink color on the outside. This pencil is very comfortable: It has a great grip on it. With this pencil I don't think I'll ever need another pencil again.

If you buy this pencil make sure that you buy the lead that is made for this pencil
