3.0 out of 5 stars Clever but could be better, 31 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Uni Kuru Toga, Silver Barrel Mechanical Pencil (Office Product)
Superb service by Amazon as usual, product arrived so quickly even using super saver delivery.

It's a neat and ingenious idea to have the lead rotating, which works well. But on examination and use, it's obvious where all the money goes - straight into the Kuro Toga "engine". The rest of the pencil feels very cheap, and the grip really is nothing special.

Put this mechanism into a better quality body and Uni would be onto a winner. Adding a 'shaker' lead advance system to that would make it perfect.

But until then, the offerings from Pilot, Rotring and Ohto are much nicer to use for the same money. For me personally a few days of using this pencil have been interesting but sadly for most of my note-taking I'm going back to my much loved Pilot 'shaker' pencils, where a quick flick of the wrist advances the lead.
