Visconti shook the fountain pen industry with a breakthrough both in design and use of materials when the original Homo Sapiens Bronze Age was launched. Carved from pure basaltic lava and enriched with resin materials, the pen encompasses the strength of ancient powers, juxtaposing its volcanic nature to a soft and smooth writing experience thanks to its 18Kt Gold nib. This award-winning writing tool was followed by the Homo Sapiens Dark Age designed with black ruthenium trims.
Today, the Homo Sapiens collection is still one of Visconti's signature writing instruments. Virtually unbreakable and naturally hygroscopic, the Homo Sapiens now comes in the "Magma" edition featuring red trims symbolizing the eruption of molten lava through the volcanos passageways. The glossy metal red trims give a fiery contrast against the matte black lava of the pen's body.
The Homo Sapiens Magma collection is available in ballpoint and maxi size rollerball and fountain. The fountain fills using the Visconti patented power filler vacuum system and is enhanced with Visconti's 18kt Gold nib with black ruthenium plating.
