You may be wondering what’s the big deal about these pens that I had to write a post w/ my first impressions about it. To start off, the Pilot FriXion pen line are pens that uses a special type of ink that’s erasable. From what I remember they have this for ballpoint pens, gel pens, highlighters, and even coloring markers. Yes you read that right, erasable ink. Another cool quality about it is that the eraser, supposedly, does not leave any residue, nor does it wear down for some reason. You won’t ever have to worry about using up all the eraser and having to buy an extra one. Lastly, the pens are refillable, so no need to dispose the entire pen if you use up all the ink. Buy refills and it’ll be good as new.
These types of pens have been around for a long time, so they’re not exactly new or something to rave about. My earliest memory of using pens like these were back in middle school. It was the fad back then, a gimmick pen (lol) and after sometime when everyone has moved on to the next coolest thing for children to own, I had also forgotten about it.
Fast forward to 2014, I found about these erasable ink pens from Pilot, with the “FriXion” label and they come in variety of colors and kinds. All of these I discovered while I was browsing Jetpens for hours! Haha. The erasable ink pens have come a long way since then. For the most part, I think the erasing quality has also improved.
Let’s see how well these pens perform and if they’re worth the price tag and are worth buying.
