The Mitsubishi Kuru Toga is one of our absolute favorite mechanical pencils. It rotates the pencil lead as you write using only the kinetic energy created by your pencil strokes. The rotating lead results in a uniformly sharp point (instead of the chisel-tip that can develop) which means neater lines and a stronger lead. The grip is even clear so you can see the rotating mechanism as you write. It is no wonder that our customers love this pencil.

A High Grade version of the standard Kuru Toga is available.

Also try the new Uni Alpha Gel Kuru Toga with a very comfortable grip.

Check out the Kuru Toga Roulette for another professional Kuru Toga option.

Note: do not load more than two leads into this pencil at one time to avoid jamming.

  • 4 additional new colors as of Fall 2014: baby pink (lighter than the original pink), violet, red, and navy

I own two of these pencils and use them every day. I keep one in my crossword puzzle book and another I carry with me. I love how they write and the lead rarely breaks like the cheap mechanical ones.

The Kuru Toga has quickly become my favorite pencil. I am artist who uses "delicate" lines to get the best detail out of my work. While some would argue that its not "proper" for a artist, I personally believe it is not what you use but how you use it! The Kuru Toga keeps lines crisp, straight and clear. The genius of this pencil's mechanism functions to makes it possible for fine work. While the barrel is somewhat thick(as I prefer thin) the pencil still maintains a light feather feel. Which is what I need for swift and quick lines. I highly recommend this pencil both artists and writers alike!

The best I've used! My fiance bought me this pencil in silver at a Japanese super market and I instantly fell in love with it. Writes smoothly, keeps the lead coming so you don't have to shake it too often. The best mechanical pencil I've ever had.

This is my second order of this pencil from Tokyo Pen Shop. I loved it so much that I had to get another, and I will probably by a few more once school starts. I love that the lead rotates because I am a heavy writer and I am very prone to the "chisel tip" that happens if you don't rotate your pencil. To make things worse, I always hold the pencil the same way, so normally, I just end up breaking off some lead and starting over. With this pencil, I don't have to worry about that. It's a little more expensive than other mechanical pencils, but definitely worth the investment if you do a lot of writing.

These are the very best mechanical pencil for the money. They are very well made and write like a dream.

Disappointing. I've had the pencil less than two weeks and it has already stopped rotating. It looks cool, but basically is not much different than your average disposable mechanical pencil. Definitely not worth the $$.
