Visconti is delighted to announce the Leonardo Da Vinci Machina pen in celebration of the amazing artist, architect, engineer, and scientist.

The Machina was inspired by the desire to celebrate Leonardo Da Vinci's lifetime achievements. A man as well known in the art community as he was in the science and mathematics industries, Visconti commemorates Da Vinci's life on the 500th anniversary (May 2nd, 1519) of the Italian legends passing. He was born near Florence, Italy and celebrated world-wide for the immense impact he had on popular culture.

Visconti chose to highlight his engineering talent for the design of the Machina collection. Hand-crafted in different limited edition finishes, the cap and barrel feature beautiful details of the technical drawings of some of Da Vinci's revolutionary machines collected from the famous Codex Atlanticus. The use of the scrimshaw technique and a colored pigment are a tribute to Da Vinci's beloved red chalk drawings, showing once again the remarkable technical and artistic expertise of Visconti's craftsmen.

This limited edition pen comes in an expertly crafted icosahedron-shaped gift box that has a hinged-lid and opens to feature a gear shape that holds the Machina pen. Includes a special glass bottle of Visconti Sepia ink.

The collection is limited to 288 pieces worldwide in this trim color. The fountain pen features Visconti's power filler system.

Update: Historically this pen has been offered with a 23kt palladium Dreamtouch nib; however, Visconti is now transitioning to 18kt gold Perfecttouch nibs made by Bock in Germany. We've indicated in the nib size drop whether the 23kt palladium or 18kt gold nib is currently being offered at Goulet Pens.
