Sorry, I misinterpreted the question... but the original KT is a pretty good
pencil. Plastic feels kind of cheap for something of its price, but nothing that
brings down the overall feel of the pencil. It's one of my top pencils in my
splatt: I haven't tried the high-grade, but I have the original one. I don't
know if you can compare the two (since one has a grip, thicker and the other is
thinner). I like them in their own, special ways. For example, the original KT
is like an upgrade of a regular US pencil you'd find in Office Depot. The A-Gel
KT is one of those things you can only get from Japan, plus it's two good things
@gold.silvergold: Overall this pencil's really good. Well I like it. And about
the plastic thing, there isn't a plastic slip for it, nor do I think the plastic
slip for the Dr. Grip will fit. What I did for my Dr. Grip was put a sticker on
the barrel that was it, haha.
Anyways, here\'s a real review. I bought this pencil from somewhere in Japan and
I\'ve been waiting to see these on Jetpens for sometime. The grip felt like a
slightly squishier version of the Dr. Grip. This is a very nice pencil for
writing, since the original Kuru Toga doesn\'t have much of a grip. You can take
off the plastic outside and decorate the inside of the barrel much like a Dr.
Grip. However, the tip isn\'t retractable and you can pull on it too...but
that\'s not much of a problem for me. The plastic barrel feels kind of cheap and
easy to scratch. Overall, I love this pencil. If you\'re thinking about getting
it, stop thinking and get it.
This is a pretty sturdy brush pen. I use this mainly for drawing. However, one
thing I don't like is that it sometimes comes out scratchy or...bordered.
Overall, I like this pen. I bought a spare in case the one I'm using runs out.
