ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO RESTORE YOUR WRITING IS TO PLACE YOUR NOTES IN A FREEZER
FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS - THE INK SHOULD CHANGE COLOR TO ITS ORIGINAL SHADE AS THE
t OF THE INK DROPS TO -20°C (approx. -4F) - "FRIXION" INK IS DESIGNED TO
"DISAPPEAR" WHEN ITS TEMPERATURE REACHES 65°C (approx. 149F).
Hope it helps!
I am a fountain pen user but I do LOVE the Frixion Series!!!

A little background about...
, January 11, 2012
A little background about my note-taking preference first: I love writing with
pens except when taking notes or outlining for a class I use pencils due to the
fact that I am always erasing. However because of pencil transfer, like when you
write on the other side of the written page, I only use the front side of pages.
NEVER THE BACK PAGE. And this never really bothered me, but recently I've been
noticing how much more paper I've been wasting compared to my peers. So in comes
the Pilot Frixion pen. I was always iffy about eraseable pens, since they didn't
seem to give clean pencil-like erasing. But the heat erasing mechanism of the
Pilot Frixion pens intrigued me.
When I first got this and the black pen, I was in LOVE. Yes the black looked a
bit washed out, but the writing and erasing was amazing. SO CLEAN. And so for
the past week I've been writing avidly with my new pens. However upon looking
back at my notes I've noticed parts of my notes missing, like a part of a word
here and there. And so I realized, when erasing one side of the page, the heat
goes through the paper and partially erases what is on the other side. I was
devastated. And not to mention soooo frustrated. And while rewriting parts of my
notes and getting very annoyed I decided to take a break and write this review.
So yes beside the fact that the heat mechanism does have a downside or two...
the pen itself is good and erasing is amazing.

Great pen, erases completely!...

Great pen, erases completely! Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun pen
that can erase. Just make sure not to leave in the sun, I made that mistake and
all of my notes disappeared!

I absolutely love this pen. It's one of my favorites by far for both the FriXion
line, and my pens overall. The pens are great for math notes especially. I can
write and erase as much as I need, and it writes completely smoothly. Of course
there's the down side of being left in the heat, but for the most part it's not
a problem, and just toss it in the freezer for a while and it'll be fine. But
the colour is nice and dark and pretty, and I love it!
| Frixion pens write more...

Frixion pens write more smoothly than any other pen I've ever used. They're
particularly great if you write in cursive or half-cursive, as they make your
writing flow better. They erase beautifully. I have not had any problem with my
writing disappearing, or erasing something inadvertently on the other side of
the page. Compared to the 0.5 Frixions, the ink on the 0.4s lasts more than
twice as long, which is a huge saving grace. (Beware: the 0.5's last about 12-14
pages of notes. The 0.4's last about 30.)
