Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Fountain Pen VS15499

Zoom Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Fountain Pen Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Fountain Pen

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.

Supplied gift-boxed.

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.
