Visconti Homo Sapiens Lava Bronze Oversize Fountain Pen
[VI-LAVA-FP]
Visconti conceived the Homo Sapiens fountain pen for real writers, for those to whom the pen continues to represent a travelling mate, a daily friend to share with the same civilization that writing contributed to create.

The material in this pen is as antique as the world: lava from the Etna volcano. Visconti lava is:
Virtually unbreakable, it has a high degree of resilience.
Flameproof, Visconti lava has a resistance to heat of over 100癈.
Slightly hygroscopic, allowing to absorb hand sweat during use.

Inspiration was drawn from the Bronze Age for all metallic parts. The Bronze Age, almost contemporary to the invention of writing, marked the eve of human civilization. The clip, the rings and the metal accessories -with the exception of the piston only- are all in bronze: natural bronze like the antique formula, that does not require plating or protection treatments which alter its original almost pink colour and which can be easily polished with special products.
The charging high vacuum power filler is made of titanium, the only material resistant to ink aggression.

The fountain pen has an 18 karat gold nib.

The collection can be personalized using the well-known Visconti patent- My Pen System - with the instant application of the initials, the zodiac sign or the semi-precious stone preferred by the fortunate future owner of a Visconti pen. The My Pen System applications can be found in our web store.

The name Visconti has been for the past twenty years a synonym for writing instruments of extraordinary beauty, historically and technologically studied. The fountain pens, rollers and ballpoint pens by Visconti make up a wide range of high quality instruments with a strong identification.
