Frixion erasables are my Holy Grail, I've converted plenty of others to them,
and always have a backup supply of them just in case. Unfortunately the
disposable version is very juvenile in appearance, and I don't find it
professional. $22 is pricey, but I know I love these frixions and have used them
for over a year, so it is a worthwhile investment. I wish the price would
drop,I'd buy in the other colors as well. I've only seen these Biz versions on

I love the body of this pen, looks very sleek and professional. I only wish the
ink was darker, the ink is more of a grayish color to it.

I bought this pen in white, and I didn't know this, but the white is also made
of metal. :) I was quite happy about that. I do love this pen, and I must say
the eraser works really well! I didn't have any black marks let over like the

I love the body of the pen, and I love the FriXion ink - I use my other FriXion
pens constantly (I'm an accountant/auditor). Unfortunately, I HATE the eraser on
this model. It leaves black smears everywhere. I greatly prefer the clear
plastic eraser on the newer, fine-tipped model, it doesn't leave a trace
anywhere. It's a shame that for the price of this pen, it's the one FriXion that
I would rather not use.

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! ^_^
