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, 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 :)
