DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
There's a real problem that affects almost all mechanical pencils—bear with us as we explain. As you use a regular mechanical pencil, the lead wears down on one side, forming a slanted wedge-shaped tip. Each time you put the lead to the page you end up using a different lead surface (pointy, flat, wide, thin) depending on how you hold the pencil. This can cause dramatic and unsightly variations in line thickness as you write or draw.

The Kuru Toga eliminates this problem with the use of an ingenious lead 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 to create a conical tip shape that provides a fine, consistent line.

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

I have this pencil and i think that it is amazing. I also have the other model too but this one feels more solid and looks more nice. If this one is to expensive for you the other one is just like it but a bit thicker and is plastic. The only flaw is the little ring neer the tip and it hurts when i write with it sometimes.Other than that I would recomend this to anyone.

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. Nod has to go to the Pentel Graphgear in head to head but I bought 2 of these and 1 for my brother-in-law. The auto rotation for me makes a difference and the grip is great also.

This the best mechanical pencil I have ever used (although I am just getting started!). It feels great in the hand and writes easily without breaking. I normally can't use .5mm pencils but I have no problems with this pencil.
