I am not a pencil expert...
, January 31, 2012
I am not a pencil expert as many other reviewers appear to be. What I can say
for the Kuru Toga is it is the first mechanical pencil I have ever been able to
write with for an extended period of time with out continually breaking the
lead. I have a heavy hand when writing and I have never been able to experience
the joy of writing with a fine piece of lead without wanting to poke my eyes out
with the pencil instead of continue writing. I can't say it the lead rotation
device throws off your extreme precision compared to other pencils but I can
tell you it is noticeable in that it does rotate the lead helping to keep it
sharp. The pencil delivers as promised and compared to many other (cheaper)
mechanical pencils I have been nicely surprised, I finely understand why people
love to write in pencil. There is something unique that is not found in any type
of ink pen, it is a pleasure hard to describe, I find it very soft and calming.
It makes my writing even more relaxing than previously experienced. And becasue
this pencil helped me to learn that wonderful lesson I give it 5 stars...
Excellent review and highly recommended.
