More info

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 and naturally hygroscopic. The Visconti Homo Sapiens 'Dark Age' symbolises Middle Age's mysticism and its turmoil. It is trimmed with rutenium PVD plating and the cap fitting is via Visconti's secure and fast bayonet system.

The Homo Sapiens features Visconti's patented Power Filler and 23kt /950 palladium, ruthenium plated Dreamtouch nib available in point sizes extra-fine (EF) to extra-broad (BB) plus 1.3mm stub (ST).

VAT (at 20%) is automatically taken off for destinations outside the EU.

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 will still be able to order the item, but there will be a delay before we can dispatch your item(s).

Nib choices for fountain pens
If we show the pen with medium nib 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
