Pelikan M205 Duo Highlighter Green Fountain Pen Ink Review

Pelikan M205 Highlighter Green – Ink Review

Pelikan M205
Highlighter Green Ink

Handwritten Review

PenLamy Vista, 1.5mm Nib
Ink: Pelikan M205 Highlighter Green
Paper: Kyokuto FOB COOP Dot Grid – B5 (Available at JetPens.com)

Notes:
For the sake of your eyes, I’m writing this part of the review with a Sakura Pigma Micron. The Pelikan Highlighter ink was released with a special edition demonstrator M205 with a double broad nib. The ink isn’t that great for writing, but it looks and works awesome as a highlighter ink. I have it loaded in my Lamy Vista with a 1.5mm nib and it looks incredible inside the pen. The ink itself does tend to wash away some water-based fountain pen ink, and some gel ink too. It works great with the Pigma Micron’s pigmented ink, and it does a decent job with pigmented fountain pen inks like Sailor Kiwa Guro Nano Black. This review is a bit different from my typical ink reviews, so see the second handwritten page for how the highlighter works with a ton of different pens. I also happen to like the brightness as compared to two other green highlighters. Check the bottom picture to see how cool it looks loaded into a demonstrator. Thanks for reading!

Pros:

  • Fun to use
  • Bright (!!!) green
  • Nice shading

Cons:

  • Your eyeballs will melt if you attempt to use this for regular writing

  1. Dear Ed,

    It seems that I should have responded to you like this since you didn’t reply to my comment about meeting you at the LI Pen Show.

    How did you like it? I, as always, exceeded my budget and my wife was bored out of her gourd.

    It was nice meeting Richard Binder — I didnt have the nerve to ask if it was Binder with a short I or a long I. However, the Edison Beaumont I bought from him showed me what Binderizing a nib does. I’ll bring some of my pens next year (if my wife lets me go…)

    So be well,

    Norm Shechner

    1. Norm,

      Very sorry I didn’t get back to you in a timely manner.

      The show was good for me, I added a Pilot Custom 823 to my collection with a custom grind. There’s a post recapping the show going up later today that has a whole bunch of info and pictures in it.

      I believe it’s Binder with a short i – “been-der”. He’s a pleasure to deal with and it’s awesome to watch him work.

      Best,

      Ed

  2. I tend to do a lot of highlighting in my books, so when I fist spotted this ink I thought it might be a nice replacement for my standard highlighters. However, as you know most mass market books use substandard paper and my concern would be the ink would bleed through the paper. In your testing did you happen to try the ink out on mass market book paper? I would be curious to see how it would perform as a replacement for standard highlighters.
