Description
Enjoy the second generation Kuru Toga pencil with an aluminum grip and high-quality plastic body. This pencil is perfect for stationery fanatics, it will always give you a sharp point! Ideal for writing crisp and neat print, using with Sodoku puzzles and more!

It's going to take a true pencil expert to understand the common pencil’s dilemma but hang in there as we try and explain. With standard mechanical pencils, as you write the pencil lead is worn down until it is a slanted surface. Each time you write you will get a different experience depending on how the pencil is rotated. This can cause multiple annoyances:

1. As you start to write you might have 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.

2. If you pick the pencil up and happen to start writing with the tip of the angled point, it is likely to scratch or catch on the paper.

3. The different angles at which the pencil lead comes in to contact with the paper is a common cause of lead breakage.

The Kuru Toga, on the other hand, has a core rotation mechanism that continually rotates the pencil lead as you write. The lead is twisted through a spring-loaded clutch, it works by twisting incrementally every time you lift the pencil up (i.e. during printing words, etc). This allows a uniform wearing of the pencil lead so that it always remains as a pointed tip. Not only does it solve the above problems, but it also gives you an amazingly thin line. You are effectively using only 50% of the lead area that you were previously using with your old mechanical pencil. Thus, a 0.3/0.5 mm Kuru Toga will write incredibly thin lines and have less breakage than a standard 0.3/0.5 mm mechanical pencil.

  This is the pencil I..., April 27, 2013

This is the pencil I currently use for everything. I use it for notes in my field notebook, I use it for field sketching and detailed drawing in my hand-drawn maps, as well as every day office requirements. The auto-led rotation feature keeps my writing uniform and crisp. I was hesitant to buy a pencil without a soft grip, as I am so used to my gel grip on my Uni-Ball alpha gel pencil, but the fine details of sketch/field mapping necessitated a thinner barrel for me. I have no discomfort with this pencil, so the grip (though hard) is well designed compared to similar pencils.

I love this pencil...it is the first thing I check in my field gear in the field and I'm constantly making sure I have it as I would hate to lose it and be even one moment without it!

I recommended buying extra erasers...I use them quite a bit as mapping requires fine erasing, and they are handy to have.

  Great mechanical pencil!!..., January 18, 2013

Great mechanical pencil!! I use this a lot in class to take notes! It's also a great drawing utensil, because the lines come out nice and straight thanks to the spinning mechanism. It's also pretty fun to watch the tip spin itself, and i've received multiple compliments from friends on how awesome this pencil was! The only thing that should be improved is that, the pencil doesn't have a very firm clutch on the lead, and the lead tends to fall out even when there is quite a bit left. Overall, I definitely recommend this!! I bought 3!!!!! It's expensive but totally worth the money!

Great writing utensil!! I use this pencil every day in school to take notes, and its even a great pencil for drawing, since the lines are always neat. It's pretty fun to watch the pencil rotate itself :) alot of my friends have complimented on it! The metal grip is perfect instead of the regular rubber grips on most pencils. It provides a firmer hold. The only thing that could be improved is that the pencil doesn't hold the lead well always, and the lead manages to slip out even when there is still quite a bit left. Overall, great quality as always from Uni!
