Visconti Homo Sapiens Fountain Pen Dark Age (Stub) Oversize
Visconti Homo Sapiens Fountain Pen Dark Age (Stub) Oversize
All about nib sizes
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 (oversize version) and 23kt /950 palladium, ruthenium plated Dreamtouch nib available in point sizes extra-fine (EF) to extra-broad (BB) plus 1.3mm stub (ST).

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
