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 vibrant colors, and erases without a trace! Best of all, they are made of 76% recycled plastic.
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.

I have owned these pens...
I have owned these pens for over 5 years and I absolutely love them. I am an accounting manager and these are the only pens I use when doing my books (the company I work for does books the old-fashion way - no computers). I have found that when there is a little residue after erasing, if I take a regular pencil-type eraser (I use an eraser stick), and go over it, it pretty much gets rid of any marks.

I just got my pens today!...
I just got my pens today! yayy! Okay so after using them for a full hour and a half, erasing, and writing I have found out that this is the most reliable erasable pen ever!!! my planner paper is from franklin covey so it is very thin, all of my erasable pens have ripped right through it so I have only been able to use pencil in my planner. Well... let's just say that I now have lots and lots of pen writing in my planner now!
okay now here is my review:
although there is no eraser on the can you don't need to have the cap on the end because it is a very well balanced pen! although it is a bit of a drawback I have already gotten used to it!
The grip on this pen is very nice. not too squishy and not too hard. In my hour and a half of writing with them, my hand does not hurt one bit! so that is a very very big upside to this pen.
the design on this pen is very artistic. beautiful, yet still can pass as an elegant pen suitable for a work enviroment.
the flow of ink on this pen is very very good! it does not get goopy leaving dots at the beggining and ends of letters, and the ink flow is nice. so far it has not stopped once!
there is just one word for this: awesome!!!! it doesn't even leave a trace that the ink was left there, and will save me soooo much money in the future for buying erasers!
in all i would recommend this pen to everyoneee! except my enemies, cuz why would i want them to have such an awesome pen?? 5 stars jetpens!

yes............it does crinkle a bit. I find the smallest amount on residue on my paper, but that doesnt really bother me. I sweep all my eraser residue off my desk for my mum to vacuum~lol
Well, they do disappear quite fast. Half my notebooks are blank.......but i guess nothings perfect. Yet this is the pen that is closest to perfection. (in my opinion anyway)

Great pros and bad cons...
Great pros and bad cons to these pens.
Everyone admires how I can erase pen, they love it!!
However, the plastic on these pens is VERY breakable, crackable. I've gone through most of my set just in normal use. If you screw the pen together after refilling it just a bit too hard, break. If you push down on the cap a bit too hard, break. These pens are far too expensive to keep breaking like they do.
Another con is that the ink gets used very quickly, seems much more quickly than normal pens.
So, if you go VERY gently on these pens, you will love them. Just buy refills from the beginning so you don't run out of the ink and you'll be fine.

when i erase marks made...
when i erase marks made by these pens with the rubber eraser on the end i still get some eraser/ink residue. (it looks just like regular eraser residue except in a much smaller quantity) the paper also crinkles underneath. am i using these pens incorrectly or putting too much pressure when erasing?
