Visconti Homo Sapiens Fountain Pen - Bronze Age, Fine

$695.00
MSRP $695.00
Product Code VI-46602-F
The Homo Sapiens is handmade from hardened basaltic lava sourced from the Mount Etna volcano in Italy, with a trim made of solid bronze. Visconti lava is virtually unbreakable, comfortable and warm to the touch - and slightly hygroscopic, absorbing moisture from your hand. 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 two-tone 23kt palladium fine nib.

Visconti Homo Sapiens Fountain Pen - Bronze Age, Fine is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lava and Bronze! Constructed out of matte black lava resin with bronze fittings, this pen could be on display in a museum. The barrel, cap and section are beautifully proportioned. I love the cap locking mechanism. Un-posted, the pen is very comfortable to write with (posting makes it a bit back heavy). The lava resin is unique to the touch, unlike anything else. The 23K palladium nib is smooth, although the fine I ordered is really more of a medium.
