Due to the worldwide success of the original Homo Sapiens Bronze Pen range, Visconti have added a new finish to the range, replacing the bronze with steel to celebrate the age of steel. Steel is a material which characterises the technological evolution of mankind, from its discovery in ancient times, forging tools and swords, to the construction of some of the largest manmade structures in the modern world.

The use of stainless steel in the Homo Sapiens Steel range epitomises strength and durability when combined with basaltic lava, a material with incredible properties:
  • High Strength
  • Flameproof
  • Slightly Hygroscopic - absorbs moisture, effectively removing moisture for comfort during use
  • Very Dense and weighty, helping ergonomics
As with the original Homo Sapiens, the Steel version has been manufactured using material as ancient as the world itself, containing over 50% basaltic lava, from the famous Sicilian volcano Mt. Etna, catalysed with a resin using a secret formula, patented by Visconti to create the perfect writing instrument material. The end result is a beautiful writing tool with extraordinary characteristics. Definitely one for any serious pen enthusiast.

  • Nib Sizes: EF-F-M-B-S
  • Material: Basaltic Lava from the Etna Volcano, Stainless Steel
  • Fountain Pen Filling System: High Vacuum Power Filler for Oversize, or Piston Filler for Medium size
