Erasable ballpoint pens have recently taken a firm hold on our stationary culture, have not it? Crushing commonsense which says we could erase what ballpoint pens describe with only whiteout or daubing, it brought them closer to us. That was epoch‐making, you know.

Now, various makers release erasable ballpoint pens. I especially recommend MUJI’s Erasable Ballpoint Pen among all of them right here. It holds its rubber for erasing what you wrote with it. The ink vanishes when it gets to a fixed temperature and the rubber erases with friction.

Yes, I suppose you have heard Frixion Ball, it is Pilot Corporation’s ballpoint pen with erasable ink. Frixion is naturally from friction.

Pilot manufactures MUJI’S Erasable Ballpoint Pen as an original equipment manufacturer. The MUJI’s pens are only 0.5 millimeter thick. When you use a refill of Pilot, however, you make a hidden trick that has it 0.7 millimeter thick.

You must think like this. Oh, so it is better to buy Pilot’s one, is not it? That is an orthodox thought. What is the reason to commend MUJI’s brushing away the legitimate idea?

First, there are Family Mart stores all over Japan. It is a kind of convenience stores and you can find them every prefecture. They limitedly deal with MUJI items like T-shirt, ballpoint pen, food and so on. So it is very easy to get when you live in Nippon.

Moreover, it is inexpensive though it is designed simply and finely. You have to pay over 200 yen for Pilot’s Frixion. There are some types over 1,000 yen. But you pay 157 yen including tax and you can own a MUJI’s Erasable Ballpoint Pen. The price difference makes you glad when you make up some colors, does not it?
