Kaweco Highlighter Pen

Nib close-up

After my post on Highlighters a few weeks ago, I decided to go ahead and invest in a fountain pen highlighter. I purchased a Kaweco Ice Sport with a BB nib ($23.50)  and a bottle of Noodler’s Firefly ink ($12.50). The Kaweco I purchased was a clearance item from Goulet Pens available with the BB nib which is no longer available though other vendors online do carry the BB nib.

Pen and ink

I admit I was absolutely tickled to make a highlighter with a fountain pen. The Kawecos are so tiny and portable, the Noodler’s ink is a nice bright clear yellow. I do tend to pick up bits of laser toner in the nib but a quick wipe with a tissue removes the black dust easily.


I filled the pen using an empty cartridge and a syringe with no issues and I’ll have ink for years to come.

All in all I’m very satisfied with my highlighter solution.

I use a Miquelrius medium flexible 300 grid paper book purchased from B+N for my ink tests.
