Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Fountain Pen
Visconti was pleased to announce the launch of the Homo Sapiens, the most highly anticipated pen of 2010. Made from material as ancient as the world around us, the Visconti Homo Sapiens was the first pen ever forged from volcanic lava. The lava is from Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy.
Lava is virtually unbreakable having a high degree of resilience, it is heat resistant to over 100 degrees centigrade, is hydroscopic, meaning that it absorbs sweat, and has a dense feel making it comfortable to grip and relaxing to write with.
The Homo Sapiens fountain pen has a High Vacuum Power Filler, which does not leak in flight, fitted with a titanium rod, and also features the all new Visconti Dream Touch 23K palladium nib, which has a great memory, is very flexible, and very smooth to write with. The nib is 950 parts palladium which is then dipped in gold for the two-tone look. Bronze fittings complete the look. Limited five year guarantee. Made in Italy.
Available in EF, F, M, B, BB, and 1.3mm stub. Please specify when ordering.
