TLDR: High quality mech pencil. Auto rotating sorta works for some people.

Maybe a review on a pencil is a bit too much
But I've been using this for over 2 years and just want to share my experience with the rotating mech.

The main reason people buy these is the auto rotating mechanism (Or maybe just because it's a good pencil), while this works there are many factors that make it a pretty useless feature.

The angle you hold your pencil, how long is your stroke, how often do you lift your pencil, the amount of weight you push on it.

For best result here are the numbers
Angle: anything between 70 to 50 degree
Stroke: short
Frequency: often
weight: heavy

So if you're already writing like I describe or willing to change how you write, the rotating mech will work for you. Otherwise, it's just a regular mech pencil. A pretty good mech pencil.

Great deal although I personally prefer the Kurutoga model with the comfort grip. I just checked and that one is within a few cents of its all time low according to CCC. Link for those interested:

Worth noting Amazon has the one I linked as an add-on item so you would need Alexa to order it without having minimum order price requirements.

Well, aesthetically speaking, the pencil with plastic body and rubber grip looks very boring and generic. I rather have something that is well constructed and looks amazing and sacrifice a tiny bit of comfort.

The third party price for this pencil is always lower than the Amazon price.

been using this pencil for 4 years now! it keep the lead sharp by rotating each pencil-to-pickup movement you do. not the best of cursive but perfect for people who write in print! I paired this up with 2B-4B lead

Been using these for the past two years and they are great. Bought them 3@$9 each on eBay.

Paired with uniball's nanodiamond lead, I hardly ever broke the lead. I also have a heavy grip when I write. When the lead actually breaks though, there's such a difference in writing between the sharpened lead from the kuratoga and the freshly broken lead.

I would definitely recommend this!

Highly recommended. This is the best-writing mechanical pencil I've had in years.

I do not write in cursive, and have found it rotates quite well. Remember, it doesn't need to rotate every second. It just needs to rotate enough so that the lead wears evenly. As such I don't need to bear down extra hard when writing. It just works.

I'd probably lose it within 5 minutes of opening the package. Good find though!

I would have killed for a mechanical pencil like this when I was in middle school.
