The reason why I bought

I bought an Everlast notebook made by Rocketbook! I had been searching for paperless life. This is the video which made me decide to get the notebook when I saw at first sight.

The points I thought nice

  • I can erase many times and use endlessly.
  • I can erase using wet tissue: the item is in office.
  • It is easy to convert to a digital format.

How to buy

I bought one on the US Amazon because they are not sold in normal Japanese e-commerce sites. You can buy in the same way as Japanese Amazon if you don’t mind waiting shipping lag and reading English.

The price is item price $34.00 + shipping cost $5.60. When I changed the payment method to Japanese yen, item price 3,894 yen + shipping cost 641 yen, total 4,545 yen (in August 2017).

I tried using!

After 2 weeks from my order, the item came from the US, so I tried using!

drawing and erasing

First, I drew with a Friction Pen.

Next, I erased with wet tissue.

Closing remark

The points I thought nice were the most exciting as I expected!

Little worrisome things are that drying time is a little longer than normal paper. Besides, after I use wet tissue, I should wait drying time, or it is still wet next time. However, I think they are small problems.

The most important thing is that I will carelessly draw with a normal pen, then I am going to be sad. I will try to be careful…!
