- The Homo Sapiens range is new in 2010 and it is the use of materials that makes this fountain pen truly innovative. With the intent of creating an extremely durable daily friend for the real writer, Visconti turned to the Etna volcano to bestow the virtually unbreakable body to this incredibly long lasting writing instrument. The material contains over 50% lava and is mixed with resin to create a fantastically dense, slightly hygroscopic, heat resistant structure that is then polished to provide a beautiful finish that requires no overlay. The bronze accents take their inspiration from the Bronze Age, and their simplistic design sets off the deep basaltic lava perfectly. We love how secure and balanced the Homo Sapiens fountain pen feels to hold, it really lives up to its purpose as a reliable and durable companion.
- The Homo Sapiens fountain pen has as standard Visconti’s 23k palladium Dreamtouch nib, also new for 2010. The nib requires no pressure to write and the palladium offers qualities of flexibility, originality and resistance to ink corrosion. It is the highest value nib ever known to a fountain pen.
