The Visconti Homo Sapiens Black Lava Steel Age Fountain pen. Visconti celebrates the Steel Age with a new member to the popular Homo Sapiens pen collection. The body is made of basaltic lava from the Mt. Etna volcano in Sicily, Italy. Each piece is bound together with a silver stainless marine steel trim, reminiscent of the age that effectively brought humanity out of the Bronze Age and into an era of economic evolution and production advancement never before seen. The pen is virtually unbreakable and completely flame-proof; it is able to resist heat of over 100°C. It also possesses a 23K dream-touch nib that provides crisp, clear lines and an effortless glide. Finally, the body itself has a comfortable grip and is slightly hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs sweat while you’re writing.

Additional Brand Information
Visconti is truly a company founded by pen lovers, for pen lovers. This outstanding company was founded in Florence, Italy in 1988 by Dante Del Vecchio and Luigi Poli. Visconti’s founders were fountain pen enthusiasts for many years before opening the company together.
Since the company was founded, Visconti pens have been the pinnacle of extraordinary beauty, technological innovation and historical familiarity. Each piece is made from only the most precious materials combined with the most sophisticated and advanced technology. Visconti’s signature process of manipulating celluloid – “gold for pen specialists” – into vibrant colors and patterns as well as its numerous ink feeding and pen customization methods make Visconti writing instruments a stand out from its competitors.
Visconti’s stylish designs and brilliantly original aspects have given it international acclaim as a personal as well as politically prestigious writing tool. Recently, a Visconti pen was used to sign the marriage contract of the sovereign prince of Monaco, Albert Grimaldi II, and Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock. Visconti has just released a commemorative pen to honor the couple’s marriage; a pen with royal sophistication and elegance that only Visconti could produce.
Pen Boutique is an AUTHORIZED DEALER of Visconti writing instruments.
