This is wooden body pencil. Inside barrel is plastic, with a nice brass
precision mechanism. The tip and the clip are nice matt aluminium finish. This
pencil is well balanced and wooden grip is excellent. There is no doubt that
Pilot makes some of the best quality pencils. Get one while it is still there.
You will love it.
This a one amazing pencil. Made for those technology geeks and Engineers. Its
one of the most adjustable pencil. You can adjust the sleeve length, lead adance
length, and the type of lead. The clip is removable. You can also retract the
sleeve fully by twisting the kurnled grip. Beware that if you turn any of the
screw adjustment too hard, you will need a plier to fix it.
This pencil is all metal. Front heavy balanced. Lead wont break that easily for
Once again Ohto brings a marvelous design concept.
The only thing missing here is a manual in ENGLISH which tells you how to use
this pencil and all the adjustments.
This pencil is well made. Its heavy as it is all metal construction. It has a
nice rubber grip. Eraser is concealed at the back. You need to unscrew the cap
to reveal eraser. The sleeve is sliding one. However the concept of bodyknock is
not very good one. It does not work well always. Its rather awkward for me, not
that smooth and quick like push button pencils. But its an interesting pencil.
Ohto has thought out of the box to design this pencil. I give 4 stars for the
quality and concept.
This is a classy pencil. Its been there for long time. The design is classis,
functional and elegant. The pencil has a nice glossy finish and feels nice to
hold. Surprisingly its very light. Hopefully this pencil will serve me for many
years. If not, I will buy another. I am just impressed!!!
I heard a lot about this little pencil and finally decided to get one for me.
Wow!! this is one cute well made and functional pencil. Small size and smooth
glossy finish. Nice to show off. The grip is just ok. The pencil lenght can be
extended by attaching the cap at the back of pencil. This one is pocket safe due
to the cap. I am impressed with the Ohto design and quality!!
I had been using this pencil for more than 3 months now. Its an excellent pencil
to write with. The lead rotates with each wrting stroke. This happens due to the
neat gear mechanism (Kuru toga Engine) which turns each stroke into lead
rotation. This is really helpful for writing. You will always get a sharp edge
of lead, and thus uniform width letters. I have both 0.5 and 0.3 versions of
this pencil. I have noticed that 0.5 pencil works best. The effect of kuru toga
can be seen in 0.5 pencil while the 0.3 pencil is just too thin. You would not
notice much of a difference here on 0.3 pencil.
I would rather say you really dont need Kuru Toga mechanism for 0.3 width lead.
Anyway 5 stars for the 0.5 Kuru Toga. I love it!!
