Hello, and a wonderfull...
This review is from Pilot FriXion Biz Erasable Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Silver Body
, December 5, 2008
Hello, and a wonderfull (whatever daytime you might be reading this....)
After the first month with this pen and two emptied cartridges, I can say....
Although I own all the "simpler" ones in all the colours, this one shines a
dozen times better.
The inks and tips are the same, as well as the "erasing", effect.
The very thin, especially in comparison to the normal Frixion pens, body of this
pen is balanced really good, and fits smootly inside the fingers holding it.
THE FRONT PART / GRIP SECTION:-------------
The front part, which I could not clearly guess from the photos here, is
translucent / transparent, so, if you change the cartridge for a different
colour, you can always clearly say which colour you have inside the pen before
writing. Sure, you can tell not, whiole the cap is on, but does it really
It is made out of a plastic with a "rubber feel", so even if it looks very
"slicky and smooth", it does not slip of the fingers easily, even without a
visible profile it lies safely into your hands for writing and drawing
Great feeling, really.
A good, solid feeling delivered by the Aluminium body, which balances the pen
and is hardly wider than your all day pencil. slim, elegant and a good solid
feeling with a cool surface, what more can you ask for.
THE TIP / INK:-----------------
Although I prefer the Ink delivered by Pentels BK70s series, this is the second
best gel-ink I have found to date and the only erasable, too.
Give it a try, it is awesome.
But do not try to erase directly after writing, if you made a mistake, let the
ink dry for a second before "erasing" it. It is not really erased, after all, it
just dissapears at 65 Degrees Celsius. (and returns at 10 Degrees below Zero).
The black eraser from these Frixion BIZ even is better than the one from the
normal ones, never had a smear with it, not on normal copy paper not in my
notebooks, not on my arits papers for technical drawings or aquarell papers.
Worth the money? OH YES!
The very close to perfect gel-based ink pen!
I used the Frixions before, but now I am not leaving home without the Biz from
JetPens on my side.
Althoug I like another pens ink a lil' more, this is the one I use now the
Thanks a lot, JetPens! ^_^

Not recommended because of the following:
Top side of the pen is heavy, making the pen harder to control
Slim design indeed, but doesn't that make it too hard to hold the pen? Overly
slim! (not recommended for males)
Over charged, I certainly did not feel the value of 22.5$ when I see the pen.
Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Black is way better, lighter and
