Erasable InkPen Sets

Description
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 like these pens with erasable ink and in playing with them my kids and I discovered a few interesting things. When you rub the ink it heats up and "disappears". In reality, the ink turns white. If you try this on dark paper (black, for instance) the text will show up white after you erase it.

If you heat up your writing in some other way, say, by leaving it in a hot car or holding the paper up against a hot light bulb, it will also disappear. So, don't leave any important notes in your car in the sun. But, if you want your notes back, you can put the paper in the freezer. After a while your text will be back again, albeit not quite as dark as before.

My experiences were from about 2 years ago. It may be that the inks have improved. So beware, if the permanence of what you write is important to you, don't use this pen. Be weary of diplomats you hand it to you to sign treaties and that sort of thing :-)
  The ink is not black,..., April 28, 2013
The ink is not black, is gray, and a bit light at that, almost like a #2 pencil, so it beats the purpose of needing an erasable pen. If it were darker (a lot more!), it would be great. In other colors the concept works great.

Also, for being a 0.5mm, the lines are more like 0.7mm. So, this pen is in my opinion a Gray 0.7mm Pen. Or a liquid #2 HB.

The Frixion erasable pens have been favorites of mine for several months now. I was a bit disappointed that this pen does not have the needle-like tip that the .3mm pen has (just a regular pen tip), but this pen writes so smoothly and erases so cleanly I still love it! It definitely writes in dark grey, not black, like most erasable "black" pens. It's still a very dark color and does not bother me one bit, just know what to expect when you get this pen!

I love my FriXion pen and use it all the time for crafting. The black marks easily on my fabrics and then erases away when ironed. It does exactly what it should without a fuss.

I really love this pen, the only thing I don't like about it, is that it is a little too light for my taste.

It writes really smooth, though it does take about 2 seconds to get the flow going, after that it is pretty amazing from there.

I would recommend this pen to anyone who loves the idea of erasing ink :)
