Visconti presents this Homo Sapiens series, specially designed to celebrate Visconti's 25th Anniversary. This fountain pen has a commemorative lava coin on the cap top, a two-pen pouch and a Visconti traveling inkwell.
Without a doubt this is a one of a kind fountain pen. The body is made of a unique resin composed of basaltic lava (more than 50%) straight from Mount Etna volcano.
This new resin is highly resistant to bumps and heat, and its appearence and texture give this pen a primitive yet noble character.
The highly polished steel clip and trims combine magnificently with the black body.
This is the first fountain pen to include a 23K palladium nib, which is supposed to provide a more flexible stroke than the 18K gold nib.
Another innovative feature can be found in the closure system. The cap is secured by a spring that requires pushing and turning to open or close.
