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 thermo sensitive 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 silky black lines, 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.
See how well the FriXion line erases on JetPens.com TV. The FriXion Biz erases with the same technology as the regular FriXion line, but in a better looking body!:

Hello, and a wonderfull...
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 matter?
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 purposes.
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 most.
Thanks a lot, JetPens! ^_^

This is my second silver...
This is my second silver pen the first one was all bent when I got it. Good pen I use it for my planner. I bought different color ink refills and just switch them out when I want to use a different color. Erases perfectly. The pen body is very thin with absolutely no grip, which I wish it did have. Still it's comfortable to write with. Just a hair thicker than the Slicci pens.
