Unique to Visconti - a pen crafted using material as antique as the world: lava from mount Etna. Each pen consists of over 50% lava, fused together with modern resins to produce a virtually unbreakable pen. The Visconti Homo Sapiens is trimmed with bronze and the cap fitting is via Visconti's secure and fast bayonet system.

The Homo Sapiens features Visconti's high vacuum filler and 18k gold nib (rose gold plated) available in point sizes extra-fine (EF) to extra-broad (BB) plus 1.3mm stub (ST).

Shipping cost and availability

Shipping cost
UK postage is FREE over £35 but otherwise starts at £1.80 for small items (converters, refills etc) or £3.30 for ink, stationery etc.

Overseas shipping starts at only £4.00. The exact cost varies by price, weight and delivery country so to find out your final shipping cost just add the item to your shopping basket and select the delivery country. You don't have to enter any personal details - just an e-mail address but this isn't stored unless you create an account. We offer a choice of shipping services from Royal Mail and DHL.

VAT (at 20%) is automatically taken off for destinations outside the UK. Note that if you are ordering within the EU you will have to pay VAT when your parcel arrives.

If an item is in stock, the words "In stock" will be shown. If an item is out of stock, the approximate number of days before we get another delivery will be shown instead. You may still be able to order the item, but there will be a delay before we can dispatch your item(s). If the words "Please enquire" are shown, it's best to check with us first before ordering.

Nib choices for fountain pens
If we show the pen with the default nib selection shown in stock it means we have stock of that pen. If you select another nib size and the website doesn't say "in stock" we can usually supply that pen immediately as we keep extensive supplies of nibs from all our manufacturers.
