What sets the Kuru Toga apart from other mechanical pencils is a mechanism that rotates the lead as you write. With regular mechanical pencils, the lead gets worn down on one side while you're writing, resulting in a slanted edge. Every time you write, the lines will look different depending on the angle of the pencil. Even though you may start off with clear lines, the point of the lead is gradually worn down until your line widths are thick and smudgy. What's more, if you pick the pencil back up and start writing with the sharp end (versus the blunt, slanted end), the lead is likely to catch on the paper and may even break.
