In this post I talked about the perfect pen for marking your Bible. Well, all those things I said are still true because I basically said that there is no perfect pen for marking your Bible. There are some great writing instruments out there, each having its pros and cons. But I have to tell you that my affections have been totally diverted to the Pilot Frixion Color-Pencil-Like Erasable Gel Ink Pen. Oh my goodness, I am in love with these pens.
I ordered 2 colors from Jet Pens to test them in my Bible. I marked in 2 different Bibles to account for variations in paper. My observations concluded that there was no bleed-through on either paper. That’s right. I said it. No bleed-through. (I’m not guaranteeing that you won’t have bleed-through. I just know that I didn’t have any.)
And, yes, they really do erase. Really. Honest. They erase. One caveat, however: if you make a mistake and would like to erase, I would advise letting the ink dry before erasing. When I erased right away, the ink smeared a little but still erased. When I let it dry first before erasing, it caused less stress to the paper and to the type that I didn’t want to erase.
I want these pens so bad. I can’t even tell you how bad I want these pens. I am saving my pennies for the 24-color set. Once I get them, I may never stop marking key words in my Bible.
