I started with the .3mm lead model. I can't imagine who writes so softly they don't break these tiny leads on a regular basis. I then moved up to the .5mm model. It was better but still caused too many breaks for a heavy handed writer such as I. I am now using the .7mm that you see here. It has not broken once. The rotating point really does work at keeping the point sharp. I think it is the best available mechanical pencil I have been able to find to date. My one complaint is that there is no on-board storage for the erasure cap so it is very easy to lose.

I think I'd actually give this a 4.5. Not for any real reason though. I don't know why I don't absolutely adore this pencil the way others do. Don't get me wrong, I really, really like it. It's just not my go-to the way I expected it to be.

I haven't tried the leads which came with this as I purchased the pencil specifically for using with my sketchbook. Instead, I have some Pilot non-photo blue lead in it. I like the 0.7 mm size for loose work. It's great for taking notes in the margins too. The eraser is a bit small for artwork, but works very well and is perfect for correcting notes in class.

It really does keep a sharp point using the rotating mechanism. I was a little skeptical and pleasantly surprised to find it did just this. The pencil feels light in hand and the grip section fits nicely. I find I don't get fatigued as much as I do with a standard pencil as I'm not constantly rotating my grip. Which is excellent as I'm always writing and sketching ideas out.

Overall, this is a great pencil and one well worth keeping in my toolkit.

The lead never rotates, i still get the flat side of the lead. However the lead is supported well and that keeps breakage to a minimum.

Love the pencil and the way the lead writes. It also doesn't break like a lot of automatic lead pencils. Worth the price

Anyone who wants to buy a 0.7mm Kuru Toga should just buy this one, seriously. It's cheaper than other 0.7mm Kuru Toga Standard variants, comes with 2 extra erasers and one pack of Nano-Dia HB pencil leads, for almost half the price. One only gets the other variants for collection or aesthetic purposes.

There's really nothing much I can say about this pencil. This pencil writes as well as the Standard Kuru Toga line, comes with leads and erasers (yes, I brought it up a second time) and is the cheapest Kuru Toga you can find in Jetpens. For those 0.7mm lead size lovers who want an affordable but great low-tier priced pencil or those who are new to the Kuru Toga pencils, these Kuru Toga starter packs (0.5mm and 0.7mm) are the ones for you.
