This eraser is a complete must for anyone.
The good:
- erases anything, well except pen and sharpie obviously
- shavings bunch up in big bunches not small insignificant powdered bits
- big enough to hold and erase comfortably

the bad:
- eraser itself cracks and crumbles easily due to nature of eraser
- eraser gets used up faster than other erasers

This eraser is the best eraser ever. The pics don't give the eraser justice. It takes so little effort to erase with the pilot foam eraser. I would recommend getting two because you want to have an extra in case it runs out.

Overall, I liked this eraser, but be sure to cut down the holder and erase with little pressure. The cardboard holder cut into mine and caused it to fall apart in chunks. Then as I would erase more pieces would just randomly crack off, even after I cut the holder. Anyways, the clumping works well but still too many pieces for me personally, and the erasers ability to actually erase is great. I reccomend this eraser, but I have been having a much more enjoyable exprence with the BOXY. :)

Fabulous eraser! I love that the shavings clump up and that I do not have a ton of tiny shavings on my paper to constantly blow off.

I bought this before elsewhere because foam erasers are at the top of the food chain. Much to my delight, after using it I dub it "the best eraser in the world". It stole Tombow's place which is now number 2. Good to see it finally here.

This thing is awesome. It erases VERY cleanly with super minimal effort and the shavings really do clump up nicely without getting in the way. This is easily my new favorite eraser for how it feels and how easily and thoroughly it erases. It isn't as small as everyone is making it out to be - I'd call it a smallish medium. I haven't had any trouble with crumbling - I feel like maybe some reviewers are pressing too hard. It really erases very well with minimal pressure because of its softness, so I use less pressure with it than I do with my other erasers and I get better results with this one. (To be fair, I'm using it on regular smooth paper, not textured artist's paper.)

In short, buy it. It will find a useful place in your pencil bag.

Pilot Foam Size 10. I...
January 24, 2016
Pilot Foam Size 10.

I bought nearly every block eraser that Japan makes in a recent shopping binge. As a math major, I need lots of erasers as it is, but I also wanted to determine which ones worked best for my needs. I tested all of the erasers on three different types of pencils: a Pilot Eno color .7, a Pentel graphite .5 and a Pentel color 2mm, and then on three different paper types: Rhodia, an index card, and then plain old American junk copier paper.

The type of paper wound up not mattering with the performance of any of the erasers. What mattered was what they were erasing.

So with that established:

This eraser is tied with the Sakura Foam eraser as the champion of erasing. The Pilot takes no prisoners when you put it to paper. If lead is on a page, the Pilot eraser makes sure that it's not there anymore, with hardly any effort required. I almost thought I heard it sucking up the lead off the page, even before I put it to the paper. That's how fierce of an eraser this is.

My first one fell apart because I handled it roughly when I first got it. I eventually learned that a lighter touch worked as well as murdering the paper with this eraser, especially.

Please never stop carrying the Pilot foam. In fact, carry the whole line. Pilot makes bigger eraser sizes than this one.

If Pilot ever makes a click style eraser in their foam line, I'll be buying that, too.

I've tried several erasers and this is my favorite. It takes very little effort to erase heavy pencil marks, making it easy and quick to erase large areas of a page. This makes it a favorable eraser for my purposes, as I tend to pencil with regular graphite for my comics (as opposed to non-repro blue), as well as for original commissioned illustrations. The eraser shavings tend to clump, which makes for easy cleanup too!

This is one of the best erasers I have ever used. No joke. A week after I bought my first eraser I went back and ordered a second because I knew this was an eraser I'll be using for a long time.
I don't have any problem with the crumbling so far and this eraser lasts a long time for me too. I have been using the same eraser for over four months and so far I am still not even half way done with it.
Over all I would SO recommend this! Almost my friends that draw love it and if they don't they prefer the BOXY, I would buy both and try them out... It's really just personal preference.

I love this eraser, it works perfectly. But I don't know if I just erase a lot or what, but it wears down quickly.
