Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencils

kuru toga pencilKuru Toga from Uni is way different from a traditional mechanical pencil’s lead that will quickly wear down into a flat blunt tip, as seen here.
This produces gradually thicker lines and lead breakage.The Kuru Toga mechanical pencils have an internal mechanism that rotates the pencil lead as you write. Using three gears the lead is twisted through a spring loaded clutch that turns the lead incrementally every time you lift the pencil, like between words or letters.
This allows the lead to be worn down uniformly, resulting in a consistently pointed tip and reduction in lead breakage from over sharpening.The Kuru Toga family comes in a variety of different models, all clearly branded with the Kuru Toga logo near the grip.

Exclusive to the US, “Starter Sets” offered by Uni-Ball include a lead pack and two eraser refills as well. These sets come in 0.5 mm and 0.7 mm lead sizes.
To complement the Kuru Toga mechanical pencils, Uni has designed a special line of pencil leads.
With a softer outer payer and a harder core, the lead ears down evenly as it’s rotated, augmenting the sharp point.
The lead is available in HB and B in 0.5 mm. Depending on the model, Kuru Toga erasers can be replaced using either the model “S” or model “C” erasers.
