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.

Pen writes smooth! Love that it's erasable however, I don't like that the ink comes off greyish and not a true black. Over all a great idea for erasable pens!
These are the best pens...

These are the best pens I've ever used. They write really smoothly and visibly, and the ink disappears completely upon erasure (you'll only see your indents on the page if you press down hard as you write).

Some amazing things about this pen:
- There is no eraser dust, so your lap won't be covered with pink specks at the end of the day.
- Erasing is really quick and easy compared to Paper Mate Erasermates.
- The ink just vanishes when erased, on all kinds of paper, and even through tape!
- The ink can be layered through multiple passes so that it can even been seen on top of dark images! Reduces the need for silver markers/pens.

Some minor drawbacks:
- The ink runs out pretty quickly compared to Paper Mate Erasermates.
- Writing fades over time and is more susceptible to erasure from regular friction, although I've never seen it become unreadable.

Despite the minor drawbacks (if you really want a pen to last, you shouldn't be using erasable anyway), these have easily become my favorite erasable pens. The other colors work just as well, and I use them for everyday applications. I definitely won't ever use another kind of erasable pen again.

To the person who dried her notes with a hair drier and had them all disappear (sorry, but lol), you could've just stuck the pages in the freezer afterward, and they would've come back—you probably recopied all of your notes unnecessarily.

I like this pen but it caused me a lot of trouble. Don't get me wrong this pen is excellent, it writes well and it erases better than any other erasable pen I've tried. The only thing I don't like is the ink is more of a watery gray instead of a dark black.

Now the trouble part:

One lovely rainy morning on the way to class everything in my backpack ended up getting soaked, had to sit through a four hour class, etc. and when I got home my agenda was still wet so I got out the hair dryer. Unfortunately I saw the ink disappear as I moved the hair dryer to dry the pages. I should've thought about it ahead of time, but I didn't know how else to dry a sopping planner. Even though the ink was gone I could still see traces of where I had written on the pages, so afterwards I had to go and recopy everything with a different pen.

My advice is to not use this pen for important things because you never know what will happen. I'd rather not waste time trying to recopy what has disappeared, or risk it happening to an assignment. I really don't know what else to use this pen for now, so it hasn't been used since that accident. It really is a cool novelty though, so if you've got a use for an erasable pen by all means get this one, it really is the best I've found. Just don't apply heat to the ink.
