The Kuru Toga Advance has a core 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, allowing a uniform wearing of the lead so that it always remains pointed.
The new W-Speed engine turns lead twice as fast as the original uni Kuru Toga for continuous sharpening.
Approximately every 20 strokes, the lead turns thereby always keeping the tip sharp and precise.
The Uni-Ball Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil with Revolving Lead that Keeps the Lead Tip Sharp
When using a normal mechanical pencil at a typical writing angle, the lead point quickly becomes chisel-shaped. This leads to broader, less precise lines; and crumbling of the resulting sharp edge. The unique gear mechanism of the Kuru Toga rotates the lead every time it is touched to the paper, resulting in a clean cone-shaped tip which is sharp and resistant to breaking. Simple, yet brilliant!
Its a 0.5mm pencil with a fixed lead sleeve. 143mm long, approx 10mm diameter and 10g in weight. The polycarbonate barrel has a gently ridged grip section through which you can clearly see the 3-gear rotation mechanism in operation. The logo on the centre gear rotates visibly each time the tip is pressed to the writing surface. The lead rotates approximately 9 degrees with each contact - around 40 touches will rotate the lead completely
It\'s going to take a true pencil expert to understand the common pencils dilemma but hang in there as we try and explain. With standard mechanical pencils, as you write the pencil lead is worn down until it is a slanted surface. Each time you write you will get a different experience depending on how the pencil is rotated. This can cause multiple annoyances:
1. As you start to write you might have a sharp point, but as you continue to write the point is worn down and thus your line widths are not uniform. This can also lead to smudgy and thick lines.
2. If you pick the pencil up and happen to start writing with the tip of the angled point, it is likely to scratch or catch on the paper.
3. The different angles at which the pencil lead comes in to contact with the paper is a common cause of lead breakage.
The Kuru Toga, on the other hand, has a core rotation mechanism that continually rotates the pencil lead as you write. The lead is twisted through a spring-loaded clutch, it works by twisting incrementally every time you lift the pencil up (i.e. during printing words, etc). This allows a uniform wearing of the pencil lead so that it always remains as a pointed tip. Not only does it solve the above problems, but it also gives you an amazingly thin line. You are effectively using only 50% of the lead area that you were previously using with your old mechanical pencil. Thus, a 0.5 mm Kuru Toga will write incredibly thin lines and have less breakage than a standard 0.5 mm mechanical pencil.
