This is a brilliant mechanical pencil. It resolves the sole problem afflicting
both mechanical and wooden pencils, that is, the need to rotate them in your
grip as you're writing. Not that such an act is so terribly difficult for most
people with better than average motor skills—however, because the Kuru Toga
obviates the need to rotate the pencil, one can simply ... write, as with a
ballpoint. It's so clever and simple, one wonders why another manufacturer
hadn't thought of it previously.
If you use a pencil a lot through the day, I cannot recommend the Uni-Ball Kuru
Toga highly enough. Bitch about the eraser if you must, but there are plenty of
erasers for sale here anyway. Besides, what wooden or mechanical pencil has ever
had an eraser the equal of a separate one, such as a Tombow or the Mitsu Boxy?
