Sakura Glaze Gel Ink Pen - Gloss Blue - Pack of 2 - SAKURA 38494
  Brilliant color, writes..., July 10, 2012
Brilliant color, writes smoothly. It sometime does take time to get the pen started, after a period of resting period.
Monami Essenti Soft Highlighter Pen - Pastel Purple - MONAMI ESSENTI SOFT PU
  Soft color accentuates..., July 8, 2012
Soft color accentuates but not overpowers text. Dries quickly. The outer paint does chip off from the body easily.
Rohrer & Klingner Writing Ink - 50 ml Bottle - Eisen-Gallus-Tinte Scabiosa (Iron/Gall Nut-ink Scabiosa Purple) - ROHRER-KLINGNER 40 710 050

Wonderful color, even temperament. Can be a bit dry in certain pens.
Uni Kuru Toga Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Orange Body - UNI M54501P.4

The rotating mechanism really works! It is not only useful, but also entertaining to watch. The only drawback of the product is that it is not made in Japan.
J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink - 30 ml Bottle - Bleu Pervenche (Periwinkle Blue) - J. HERBIN H130-13
  Only reason I did not..., June 20, 2012
Only reason I did not give a 5 because it is selective on paper. Bleu Pervenche shades very well in either fine or broad nibs. It pairs well with either Rhodia or Clairefontaine paper.
Uni-ball Signo UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Lavender Black - UNI UM151.65
  Unique shade, smoothing..., June 17, 2012
Unique shade, smoothing writing like other Signo DX. Too bad it does not have refills!
Plus Deco Rush Decoration Pen - 6 mm X 6 m - Hippos - PLUS 43-860

The hippo design is very cute! The dispenser is compact and handy; it is easy to take everything apart to refill. It is sad to see that the tape is fragile, which make it a bit tricky to apply. If the tape is fortified, then it will be an amazing product!
Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Green - PILOT LFB-20EF-G
  When I saw this product,..., September 26, 2011
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.

Pros:
-It is erasable
-Ink flow is decent.

Cons:
-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!
Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Green - PILOT LFB-20EF-G

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!
