The Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Swirl Limited Edition series features a unique demonstrator with ribbons of ivory and brown celluloid suspended in clear acrylic on the barrel and marbled ivory resin on the cap. The arc-shaped clip and cap rings are crafted in sterling silver. The pen caps using the Visconti 'Hook Safe Lock', a revolutionary capping system so you can cap a pen without worrying about the cap accidentally unscrewing in your pocket and leaking. The fountain pen's vacuum power filler is made of titanium to resist ink corrosion, and features a 23kt palladium nib. The Bronze Swirls Limited Edition series is individually numbered and limited to 888 pens worldwide.

Note: Each of these pens has a different pattern and consistency of swirls. We do our best to photograph a pen that’s indicative of the average overall aesthetics, but expect some variance when you receive yours. It’ll be one-of-a-kind, just like your unique writing style!
