The most iconic model from Visconti is the Bronze Age Homo Sapiens. Made to be resilient, flame-proof and slightly hygroscopic, absorbing the moisture from the hands. Basaltic lava from the Etna volcano is mixed in the resin and made into a patented material used by Visconti for this pen. This unique lava material is complemented by solid bronze trims. You can leave the bronze trims to age and get patina or polish them with a cloth for a ephemeral shinny look.
This pen comes equipped with a rose gold plated Visconti new - 2019 - 18k Gold oversized nib. You can choose the nib from the 5 sizes available: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and Stub 1.3mm.
Generous ink capacity is available with the Visconti patented vacuum Power Filler. This filling system is made entirely from titanium resisting ink corrosion. The weight of this pen is well distributed making it comfortable for extended writing session. This pen can't be accidentally uncapped , it features the Hook Safe Lock trademark capping mechanism.
