i dont get it, jetpens will give you the pencil, a little pack of lead, and two
extra erasers for a lower price than if you bought the pencil alone. overall a
great pencil, elegant, pro design, and one of my favorite pencils next to the
shift pipe lock from uni

You get lead! This pencil...
, November 20, 2010
You get lead! This pencil is just the best. Its light and I think just the right
thickness. When I draw, thats the exact opposite of what I want but when I'm
taking notes, it's just so nice. I think I would get angry and stop focusing if
I went back to a normal pencil. Everything about this pencil feels great. Even
the knock. The only thing that I'm not fond of is how there is a little
suspension, less than a millimeter, but it is necessary for the turning
mechanism so get used to it. There's no reason not to get spoiled by this
pencil. Just buy it now.

Kind of a 4.5 - the grip...
, July 22, 2012
Kind of a 4.5 - the grip is odd, but useable, I may try a High Grade one. But as
for the pencil itself, and the mechanism? Like another reviewer, I find I'm not
using anything else. I tend to have a heavy hand when writing, especially in
pencil - like I expect it to be BLACK like a pen, darn it. :) But I was doing a
large amount of writing in pencil last week, scheduling, and two days in, I
realized I hadn't broken the lead, not once. It may possibly be a higher-quality
lead than I normally have, but I don't think that's all of it, if any at all.
Pleasantly surprised that the mechanism isn't a gimmick.

because others dont rotate the lead. sometimes i notice myself unconsciously
rotating the pencil while im writing
| I bought my Kuru Toga...
, May 17, 2013
I bought my Kuru Toga Starter at a retail store, because I found the pinciple of
the internal lead spinning mechanism appealing, as normal mechanical pencils
(especially ones that require thicker lead) require you to continually rotate
the pencil shaft to maintain a crisp point. After extensive use, I was extremely
delighted with how consistent the lead point was, the I decided to buy several
more through JetPens. I was also surprised to discover other unique things about
-The body is plastic, yet has a very unique feel, it feels wonderful in the
-Although having no true grip, the wave pattern in the plastic near the point
allows for very comfortable use, I prefer this over standard grips
-The push top mechanism feels very satisfying, odd to say, but I enjoy running
down the point only to feel the satisfying lead advance actuation
-theres a certain give the lead tip has, that takes some getting used to, but
ultimately, it leads to a better writing angle (imo)
-not sure if it's the lead that comes with the pencil, or the pencil itself (or
a combination of both) but writing with this pencil is EXTREMELY smooth
