The Widest Range of Pens on the Planet!
The highest quality writing instruments on the planet.
Homo Sapiens is a stunning oversize pen from Visconti. The barrel is made from basaltic lava from Mt. Etna in Sicily. This material has a matt dark grey finish; is virtually unbreakable, heatproof to over 100 degrees C and slightly hygroscopic; which means that it can absorb moisture from your hand. This last property in combination with the warm and surprisingly soft feel of the material means that this pen has a unique quality to the touch.
The cap has a quick-action bayonet fitting with a sprung pocket clip. All metal parts are high-quality polished bronze for superb wear properties.
The filling system is Visconti's High Vacuum Power Filler - from the top of the barrel unscrew the blind cap and withdraw the plunger; submerge the nib fully into the ink; press the plunger back down and count to ten; remove from the ink and screw the blind cap back down; blot the nib with tissue to remove excess ink.
18 carat rose gold nib.
Customise this pen with the Visconti MPS System, adding initials, zodiac symbols or natural stones.
Please note: rolling changes to the design of the nibs means that you may receive a pen with an arrangement of circles inscribed on the nib, instead of F, M, etc. One circle denotes fine; two circles denotes medium; three circles denotes broad.
