Description
Pack includes 2 FriXion 0.7 mm black pens.

A breakthrough in writing technology has made available the erasable pen you have always been waiting for. These new pens from Pilot erase by FRICTION, they are like a magic pen for adults! The pens have a special rubber end to rub the ink away with, thus no eraser by-products are produced, yet the ink disappears magnificently (and the rubber never wears out!) The pen writes smoothly, in vibrant colors, and erases without a trace!

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.

The ultimate puzzle pals!

These caught my attention immediately when I first saw them on a store rack. I couldn't resist. As it turns out, this was one impulse purchase that totally payed off in spades. I could not be more impressed by these. Through the simple expedient of not actually coming off the paper but rather just turning clear through friction, these pens have all the benefits of a gel ink pen while also being, by far, the greatest "erasable ink" pens I've ever used, the ink "disappearing" completely. Their design is absolutely genius, and they work far better than I would have even imagined.

As an avid puzzle solver, the ideal erasable ink pen had been an elusive Holy Grail for decades: we needed something that writes boldly on shoddy paper, but can be erased completely and without smudging. We now have the nonpareil. Since the ink never actually comes up off the paper, there is no need whatsoever for the "eraser" to dig into the paper to try (and usually fail) to get the ink off. These are officially a game changer, and I recommend them without reservation.

I love these pens; my favorite is the black one; I am able to use them at school in lab and they are acceptable; they write and look like a pen and only difference from other pens is that they are easily eraseable and presto. Black is my favorite with the 0.7 mm; the finer ones are not impressive though e.g., 0.5. (writing looks grey and appears like a "pencil" marking.)

I bought these pens in a North American drug store. I was excited to use them since they received such good reviews. However, I was disappointed. They dried much like a charcoal color not a nice black that pens such as the G-2 gel pens produce. I also noticed an inconsistency in the ink flow. Also, when I erased the paper turned out to be wrinkled creating an unattractive appearance. This was due to the amount of effort I had to use in order to get the pen completely off the paper. I regret purchasing these. But also, to readers, I am a pen snob. These are decent pens for those who are a little more flexible in quality. I would HIGHLY recommend the newer model of these that is available on the website C:
