Enter the Kurutoga. My beautiful glass slipper. And it comes in pink, which makes it even more perfect for me. It’s a tactile joy to use and fiddle with. It’s weighted to just the right degree and constructed from a sturdy combination of heavy duty plastic and sleek metal. The rotating mechanism activates and works beautifully. It begins its rotation as soon as you begin use and continues until you put the pencil down, effectively keeping your graphite from wearing down unevenly. When sketching with this pencil, I feel as though my lines and shapes flow organically from my hand, and my finer details are later added with ease. The drawing experience that a cheap plastic mechanical pencil provides cannot compare.
Even though I could talk about the Kurutoga all day, I will finish this review with a few notes that I find worth mentioning:
-I don’t recommend using the Kurutoga without its corresponding graphite. It is truly a superior graphite, and it’s been created to work with the rotating mechanism of this pencil. It is also far less messy than cheaper graphites. Since buying this pencil, I no longer have grey fingerprints all over my sketchbooks and graphite residue covering the side of my hand. I can do some blending and smudging with a tortillion, but I don’t have nearly as much accidental smudging as I used to with traditional graphite. My lines are clean and my shading is intentional.
-The eraser on this is not the best. It’s one of those tiny little crumbly ones that runs out really quickly. However, this is easily remedied by simply using a different eraser. If you’re like me, you’re already surrounded by art erasers of every variety, so you’re set. If you’re using this as your writing pencil, grab a retractable stick eraser.
-The Kurutoga is worth every penny. Its design, performance, and durability make it superior to anything else that I’ve found. My search for the perfect mechanical pencil is over. If, like me, you'd like to use one perfect pencil exclusively, the price of the Kurutoga is completely justified.
The sharpening mechanism works like this: every time you lift your pencil up (or put it down?), it rotates the lead slightly using a gear mechanism. It's really clever, and for my purposes completely non-disruptive.
Some people have complained that the eraser is too small on these Kurutogas--while it's true that the eraser is tiny, I can't understand why one might want a larger one on this particular model. If you need the precision afforded by a 0.3mm pencil lead, you'll probably need the precision of a small-profile eraser.
(edit: I mistakenly believed that this item only came with one stick of lead, when in fact it came with three).
Upon receiving this pencil, it is basically the same functionality, but it looks so aesthetically pleasing to the eye and more friendly to my hand. So I have to say, I'm quite pleased.
