This is a case of 20 pencil leads suitable for Uni Kuru Toga mechanical pencils. The lead has a special composition: a soft outer layer around a harder inner core. As a result, the lead can be easily shaped into a point, which is what Kuru Toga pencils are uniquely designed to do. The lead case comes in various colors, and the slim profile slips easily into your pencil case.
Soft on the paper, but seems to be a hard lead, well balanced just like expected
from an HB lead. The case opens with a small half twist around an helical ridge,
just like a screw. The case cap has a small dent that helps to prevent the case
to roll and fall. Works great on the Kuru Toga, but, well, almost all leads do.
Amazing lead that rarely breaks. Definitely recommended for use in the Uni Kuru
Toga Mechanical Pencils. I've only had to replace the lead in my mechanical
pencils ONCE in the entire four months since I've bought it, even despite the
amount of times I've dropped my pencil on the floor. Its case is very convenient
and portable too.
With most pencils this would be absolutely essential, and it still is, but
becomes more valuable when one is considering the nature of the Kuru Toga. The
pencil itself greatly extends the life of the lead, making this lead pack about
a years worth of lead.
