Uni Kuru Toga High Grade Mechanical Pencil

The Kuru Toga High Grade is a mechanical pencil in the Kuru Toga family, which means it has Uni’s lead auto-rotation technology.

The High Grade is similar to the other pencils in the family except for its use of a smooth aluminum grip. Most of the other Kuru Toga pencils either have plastic or rubber grips, except for the Kuru Toga Roulette, which swaps the High Grade’s smooth aluminum grip for a knurled aluminum one.

The High Grade matches an aluminum grip with a plastic body and mostly metal hardware. It’s sold in a few metallic body colors, like blue and pink, as well as black and white. Where the Roulette can be purchased with a silver or black grip, the High Grade only has silver (basically grey) grips.

The Kuru Toga Roulette is only sold in a 0.5 mm lead size but the High Grade comes in both 0.3 mm and 0.5 mm sizes.
