Enjoy the second generation Kuru Toga pencil with an aluminum grip and a high-quality plastic body. This pencil is perfect for stationery fanatics, it will always give you a sharp point!

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 is great for students! It 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.

Ridges in the grip area support your fingers as you write, making writing more comfortable. The capped eraser is refillable.

This is the ONLY pencil I use in my traditional sketches.....If it has any flaw,..it might be the tiny eraser,....but other than that.....it is my go to pencil. The .5mm beats the .3 due to the brittleness I found with the thinner lead.

I love the fact that now I don't have to click nearly as often (barely at all) anymore to adjust the lead

GREAT pencil....
