The Uni-Ball Boxy Eraser is Pretty Great (Review)

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 · Experience it yourself

This is a great little eraser that I’ve enjoyed for a number of reasons:

  • It looks good
  • It erases well
  • The eraser materials clump together
  • It’s cheap
  • It wears down fast

That’s right, I like that it wears down fast. I don’t enjoy keeping the same eraser around for 10 years while it slowly gathers dust and lint. I like erasers that do a good job and give away significant amounts of eraser material in the process. Your sacrifice was not in vain.

I also like how well the material clumps together. Rather than a pile of little rubber eraser bits, the Uni-Ball Boxy eraser usually gives you a single strand that you can pick up and toss into the trash. It’s a beautiful thing if you don’t like having to brush away crumbs with your hand or blow on the paper.

Currently priced at $1.40 USD, this tiny purchase is easy to justify if you are already buying a pencil or two at JetPens.
