DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
The long awaited retractable version of the popular Pilot FriXion line is here! Pen features the same beloved thermo-sensitive ink that can be erased by friction, but now comes in a sleek, retractable body. Just push the clip to extend and retract the tip. A subtle yellow color appears along the barrel side to show when the pen is extended. The special rubber tip at the end allows you to erase conveniently without having to cap or uncap your pen. The pen writes smoothly and erases without a trace! Refills available for select ink colors and point sizes only.

Interestingly enough, the ink in these pens will actually reappear when the temperature reaches below – 10 C (under 14 Fahrenheit). A freezer is sufficiently cold enough to make the ink start to reappear. It is like a magic pen for adults!

Because the ink in this pen is thermo sensitive, we do not advise for it to be left in hot cars, used for mailing, or subjected to a condition that exposes it to a lot of friction.

Q: My Pilot FriXion pen is not writing well. It seems to be dried out or writing with clear ink. What should I do?
The FriXion ink formula is thermo-sensitive, which causes it to become invisible when heat from friction is applied. If the pen has been exposed to warm temperatures or direct sunlight, this may have caused the ink inside the pen to be "erased." Please try to store the pens in your freezer overnight, then remove them for an hour or two prior to writing to allow them to come back to room temperature. This can usually reactivate the coloring in the ink and allow the pens to write as normal.

If you write really slowly,...

If you write really slowly, then yeah it writes well and smoothly. But if you write at normal speed or fast, it skips a lot. Plus, the saturation of the ink is inferior to Pilot G-2. This pen is just marginal.

This is a great pen!...

This is a great pen! The ink is super smooth and I was skeptical about the "erasing" but it erases super clean without smear or mess, like magic! I definitely would love to try out the .5 version soon.

One of my favorite pens to use for school. Puts down a very smooth, wet line that is easily and cleanly erased from most types of paper (a little iffy on gloss.) The knock mechanism is much more intuitive than the original cap design, though it doesn't feel as "solid" on the page as the original because of this. One of the downsides is that it runs out of ink quickly, but it is definitely worth paying for refills in my opinion.
