The amazing Visconti Homo Sapiens pen range feature barrels constructed from reformed volcanic lava from Mt. Etna in Sicily. This immensely tactile and good-looking material is incredibly tough, heatproof and slightly hygroscopic, which means it can absorb moisture from the skin. It's very good to hold. Metal fittings are high-quality polished bronze; the fountain pen and rollerball feature quick-action bayonet caps and the fountain pen has a beautiful 95% palladium 'Dreamtouch' nib - the first of its kind. Homo Sapiens is one of the most interesting premium pen ranges in our collection.
