DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers (3)
The FriXion Point 04 combines Pilot's phenomenally popular FriXion erasable gel ink with a stylish capped pen body and a precise 0.4 mm needle-tip point. Its special thermo-sensitive ink turns invisible when exposed to friction by rubbing it with the special "eraser" built into the end of the pen barrel. The ink disappears cleanly without using up the eraser or creating any dust or smearing.

The ink will also disappear if exposed to other sources of heat or friction, so we advise against using these pens to address envelopes or leaving anything written with them in a hot car. Interestingly though, erased FriXion ink reappears if exposed to temperatures below 14° F (-10° C), like if it is placed in a freezer—it's like magic ink!

A little background about...
January 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

Hey, Jul....!

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!!!

I am a special education...
July 20, 2016
I am a special education teacher and purchased the regular .7 mm pens. They erased so well, I purchased more and also purchased the extra fine point. I allowed my students to use them to do work because they could erase the ink and not need to constantly use the pencil sharpener during class. They also enjoy writing with pens instead of pencils, so there was also an ulterior motive to my purchase. They liked them so well, that I put some colored ones in my "treasure box".

The one downside I found was when I wrote on something and then laminated it for my class, it disappeared. I will have to try putting it in the freezer like someone suggested. Just letting the paper cool naturally definitely does not work. Some of the pens write lighter than others, and the .7 mm pens write darker but sometimes blur into the letter and are not as precise. For myself, I prefer the finer point. If the writing is larger, the .7 mm will work just fine, but if you are writing small, the extra fine point works best.

I absolutely love this...
April 26, 2013
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.)
