DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
Pilot Japan has broken the barrier between pencils and erasable gel pens! To highlight this fact, their newest FriXion pens have plastic bodies reminiscent of wooden pencils. These erasable gel pens write in vibrant gel colors that are unattainable with colored pencil lead. The pens are so erasable, you'll be amazed. An incredible selection of 24 colors is available.

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, you can watch a video on how it works here. 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. Please keep in mind that due to difference in design, the Pilot FriXion Color-Pencil-Like pens have a shorter lifespan when in use, compared to the regular FriXion line of gel pens.

Q: My Pilot FriXion pen is not writing well. It seems to be dried out or writing with clear ink. What should I do?
The FriXion ink formula is thermo-sensitive, which causes it to become invisible when heat from friction is applied. If the pen has been exposed to warm temperatures or direct sunlight, this may have caused the ink inside the pen to be "erased." Please try to store the pens in your freezer overnight, then remove them for an hour or two prior to writing to allow them to come back to room temperature. This can usually reactivate the coloring in the ink and allow the pens to write as normal.

1. It's 0.7mm, but it...

1. It's 0.7mm, but it writes thicker than my 7mm pilots.

2. the colors aren't solid enough. for example, the black looks gray.

3. the inks aren't even. if drawn a line, some parts will be darker than the other (more ink) especially near endings.

4. the ink takes a while to dry, so can be easily smudged.

5. don't erase THAT well and not comfy grip/design. -- not worth $2.15

6. no matter how long u wait. IT SMUDGE pencil, inks, etc. SAD...

I bought:
purplish red- ugly color...
dark green- best erase and nice color. but VERY unevenly ink distrub.
tawny brown--very sad reddish/coco brown... worst erase
tea brown- roller ball is bad? i can see there's whites in between each line when writing with it.
black--light black/dark gray...
ultramarine blue-- best color but doesn't erase too well like black and tawny brown.
purple- same as tea brown

very disappointed. but 1 star for my favorite brand pilot. 1 star for erasable.

Probably my favorite color I bought, a close second to ultramarine. Writes so smoothly and erases so easily. And the weight and feel of the pen is nice and familiar like a pencil in your hand.
