FriXion Ball Erasable Gel Pen

Pilot's FriXion Ball Erasable Gel Pens write more smoothly and erase more cleanly than the scratchy, finicky erasable ballpoint pens of the past. And while early erasable ink would eventually set and turn indelible, FriXion Ball ink stays erasable indefinitely. The way the pen works is ingenious: Its heat-sensitive ink turns clear when it reaches a certain temperature; rubbing it with the eraser generates the necessary heat (rather than wearing away the page). The ink will disappear if the paper it's on gets too hot (left in the car on a sunny day, for example), but to make the ink reappear, just pop the page in the freezer—a quirk that makes these pens perfect for sending secret messages.
