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 23kt /950 palladium Dreamtouch nib.
The nib on this pen will tested and tuned prior to dispatch. If you have any particular requirements please out these in the Special Instructions field when ordering. For more information, please visit this page
