DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
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.

This pen ink is completely...

This pen ink is completely erasable. (Well, there is a very very faint trace of what you've erased, but that's only if you know what was there and are looking for it intently.)

I do agree that the ink is not a true black compared to other gel ink pens, but it's black compared to other ballpoint pens, in my opinion.

My only problem is that I don't know where to use this pen except for fun.
I've heard of people's notes disappearing after leaving their notebook in a hot car for hours, or writing disappearing from when the papers rub against each other for extended amounts of time. Therefore, I wouldn't want to use it for taking notes (don't want all my hard work going down the drain) or on anything I turn into my professors (how troublesome it'd be if they threw away a seemingly blank piece of paper and then give you a 0 for your "missing" assignment/test).

Unless you live in a climate that's perpetually cold and have nothing to worry fear regarding the "accidental erasing," this is a good novelty item, but that's about it.

The ink is the same as any other Pilot FriXion pen - so it's already considered great for erasable inks. This pen differs in the external presentation - and I have to say it's incredible.

The body is thick for a perfect firm grasp with a grip which has just enough traction, the eraser is located at the tip for easy access and the clip just gives you another excuse to carry it around with you everywhere. And there's just that sense of style.

A definite recommend!

Nice design. Comfortable. Writes well. Not your typical ink. Ink is kind of watercolor like and light but it writes VERY well.

Wow, I liked the original FriXion, but this one is great. Easy to carry in the pocket and click with one hand to write, and the eraser is right there without having to remove cap. The ink is not as dark as I would like, but dark enough to work good. Erases completely and the refill is the same as for the original FriXion with removable cap. Next we need a "high class" version of the retractable FriXion. As usual, great service from JetPens - Thank you so much!

The ink is more gray than black but it is fully erasable which is great. Very useful when you constantly have to change dates around in your planner or if you are someone who makes frequent mistakes when writing.
