√ There's a real problem that affects almost all mechanical pencils—bear with us as we explain.
√ As you use a regular mechanical pencil, the lead wears down on one side, forming a slanted wedge-shaped tip.
√ Each time you put the lead to the page you end up using a different lead surface (pointy, flat, wide, thin) depending on how you hold the pencil.
√ This can cause dramatic and unsightly variations in line thickness as you write or draw.
√ The Kuru Toga eliminates this problem with the use of an ingenious lead rotation mechanism that continually rotates the pencil lead as you write.
√ A spring-loaded clutch twists the lead incrementally every time you lift the pencil from the paper. This allows a uniform wearing of the lead to create a conical tip shape that provides a fine, consistent line.
√ The knurled grip ensures a slip-free hold of the pencil. The capped eraser is refillable.
√ The nose cone of this pencil is metal.
