I've noticed that these things have sold out already and still have no reviews
for them. Oh well.
This thing is crack fuel for my stationery addiction. It's got a freakin' eraser
on one end and a correction tape on the other! It's like antimatter for a 2-in-1
pen-pencil! I've never seen anything like it, and it's handier than carrying a
bottle of white-out and a jumbo eraser.
The thing (you could probably tell from the pictures) is made of plastic. The
fact that the tape is retractable is absolutely amazing, since I don't have to
worry about losing the caps to my correction tape anymore. The tape covers
smoothly (unlike other tapes) and although it's a bit more yellow-ish compared
to the paper, it has pretty wide coverage for small to medium handwriting
The eraser side is eh. I like the twist mechanism, but the eraser is pretty
short and gets used up pretty easily. However, once twisted to place, the eraser
stays put even with some pretty hard pressure. The twist ring (the pink ring)
however, still twists pretty easily. The eraser erases well and quite lightly.
There's not that much annoying dust, but it doesn't erase fully. There are
subtle ghosts of the pencil from before, but that's usually if you press hard
with a death grip (like me). That puts this eraser ahead of most.
I haven't used this enough to need a refill, but just press on the white tabs on
the side (they have thumb indentations) and the plastic should come off. Lift
the tape component off vertically from the base and then replace. The eraser is
replaced simply by twisting out the eraser fully and pulling out then pushing a
new one in.
My only gripe about this thing is how fat it is. Seriously, it's an obese
submarine compared to the plethora of skinny pens and pencils I have! It fills
up pencil cases inefficiently, so I kind of wish there was a skinnier version
(even if it meant extending the length), especially with the size of the small
Still, get this thing. Then get the refill with it. You will love it.
