I ordered this the day after receiving my two "normal" Kuru Togas. As far as pencils go, this is definitely the nicest pencil I've seen at this price. The construction is very good and it has a very nice weight and balance to it. The Kuru Toga mechanism, put simply, is something that no pencil I buy from now on will be without (unless something better comes along). 100% recommended.

Very nice. I haven't used many 0.3mm leads (the 0.3mm Kuru Toga is my first 0.3mm pencil) but I can say that this is definitely strong lead. My concern with the 0.3mm was that it would be easy to break, but not so with this stuff. Very good.

This is, put simply, great lead. I compared it to my previously-trusted Pentel lead, and while the difference isn't dramatic, it is noticeably harder to break. Very good overall.

I ordered this alongside the 0.5mm KT, and I can say the exact same things - it's great. One 'gotcha' with the 0.3mm though is that the lead is so thin that the rotation doesn't do quite as much as on the 0.5mm. It still works, though the difference isn't quite as dramatic. I've read that certain types of lead wear more slowly which makes a difference (I have the HB AIN lead currently) so that may help as well.

All I can say is wow. I heard about this pencil on the Minimal Mac podcast, and I decided to give it a try since I have an issue with chiseling lead, even on 0.5 mm lead. The mechanism is very nice; it does exactly what it's intended to do. It's not really that much of a difference in reality, but it just makes writing that much smoother and more even. It won't work miracles, but the benefit is really in the details.
