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.

When I saw this product,...
When I saw this product, I thought it was an answer to my perpetual wish. Well, it is not a bad pen, but there is room for improvement.
-It is erasable
-Ink flow is decent.
-Probably because the ink is erasable; therefore, it is not as saturated as regular gel pen.
-The ink consumption is relatively quick. I only have it for a month and I use more than half of the ink. I did not use the pen on a daily basis.
-At first, the eraser works great. But as time goes on, it starts to leave black streaks on paper, even after I clean the eraser.
-The position of the eraser is interesting. Since I am used to post my cap, I will need to remove my cap every time I need to erase. Not too convenient if you are as clumsy as me.
All in all, a great idea. I am waiting to see the next generation of Frixion pens!

It is a very interesting...
It is a very interesting concept that a gel ink now can be erasable. I did expect the green to be couple shades darker (a forest green instead of grass green), but given that it is an erasable pen, darker color might be hard to erase. The flow is decent, though at time it is not entirely consistent (leaving strokes with green outline and white center). It would be better if the erase is located on the top of the cap, instead of at the end of pen. This is probably why the retractable version is made.
Overall, an interesting experiment, but with room for future improvement!
