This is a great pencil...
August 7, 2012
This is a great pencil well worth the money. I bought one each of the Uni Kuru
Toga Roulette and the Uni-ball Kuru Toga High Grade (in the .5 mm
configuration). Not sure what is high grade about High Grade one, but it is
still just as nice as the Roulette. I personally like the Roulette better as
the knurled grip sticks in my hand like Velcro and that is nice as some times I
am outside where it is warm and my hand will sweat a little. Both feel about
the same weight and write the same way being I don’t get a chiseled tip or one
line, mark or letter is thicker than another. It puts consistent marks on the
paper. I have to write in small blocks small letters and this helps out a lot.
This will not work as well if you write in cursive, but for print it is perfect.
The more you raise the pencil off the paper the more it rotates the more
constant your markings will be. Just keep that in mind when you’re thinking
about its use.
I have read a lot of reviews on here about these pencils and two things I wonder
aboutis- first is the durability if the internal parts. The roulette and high
grade seem like they will last a long time if the internal parts are as tuff as
the external seem. And second I wish they would make the whole body aluminum.
That’s just my preference. I would like to see these in some nice high end
metals carbon fiber as I would definitely buy one.
