Pilot Frixion Ball 3 - 3 Color Gel Ink Multi Pen

September 1, 2013 Posted in gel Ink pens

flixionball3.jpg

The FriXion Ball 3 multi pen combines three useful FriXion gel inks in one pen body! It features the same beloved thermo-sensitive ink that can be erased by friction, in a knock format to extended and retract each pen tip. The pen has a rubber grip for writing comfort, as well as a spring-loaded clip to secure to your pocket or notebook cover. The special rubber "eraser" tip at the end allows you to erase conveniently without having to retract the pen tip, and the ink erases without a trace! Refills are available.

Interestingly enough, the ink in these pens will actually reappear when the temperature reaches below - 10 C (under 14 Fahrenheit). A freezer is sufficiently cold enough to make the ink start to reappear. It is like a magic pen for adults!

Because the ink in this pen is thermo sensitive, we do not advise for it to be left in hot cars, used for mailing, or subjected to a condition that exposes it to a lot of friction.

Pen dimensions: Approximately 5.7 inches (14.5 cm) long and 0.5 inches (13 mm) in diameter.

Kuru Toga Roulette Model 0.5 mm Silver

The Kuru Toga Roulette has a ring design on the grip for an ergonomic hold and balanced weight. Features the same excellent Kuru Toga lead rotation system inside.

It's going to take a true pencil expert to understand the common pencil's dilemma but hang in there as we try and explain. With standard mechanical pencils, as you write the pencil lead is worn down until it is a slanted surface. Each time you write you will get a different experience depending on how the pencil is rotated. This can cause multiple annoyances:

  • As you start to write you might have a sharp point, but as you continue to write the point is worn down and thus your line widths are not uniform. This can also lead to smudgy and thick lines.
  • If you pick the pencil up and happen to start writing with the tip of the angled point, it is likely to scratch or catch on the paper. 
  • The different angles at which the pencil lead comes in to contact with the paper is a common cause of lead breakage.

The Kuru Toga, on the other hand, has a core rotation mechanism that continually rotates the pencil lead as you write. The lead is twisted through a spring-loaded clutch, it works by twisting incrementally every time you lift the pencil up (i.e. during printing words, etc). This allows a uniform wearing of the pencil lead so that it always remains as a pointed tip. Not only does it solve the above problems, but it also gives you an amazingly thin line. You are effectively using only 50% of the lead area that you were previously using with your old mechanical pencil. Thus, a 0.3 mm Kuru Toga will write incredibly thin lines and have less breakage than a standard 0.3 mm mechanical pencil.
