Forged in the volcano' the new Visconti Homo Sapiens range of luxury writing instruments includes this stunning fountain pen. Using material as ancient as the world itself Visconti has created a unique piece containing over 50 percent basaltic lava, from the famous Sicilian volcano Mt. Etna, catalysed with a resin using a patented, secret formula. The end result is a beautiful writing tool with extraordinary characteristics. The lustrous, matt black material is flameproof and resistant to heat of over 100 degrees Celsius, virtual indestructible, dense to the touch for a relaxing grip and, our personal favourite, is slightly hydroscopic. This means that it actually absorbs perspiration from your hand as you write to ensure the grip is never lost. The beautiful deep hues of the natural bronze trims from which inspiration was drawn from the Bronze Age, the dawn of human civilisation, perfectly complement the sleek barrel and are very durable. The cap has a magnet shut mechanism to ensure the lid clasps the barrel perfectly and features the Visconti High Vacuum Power Filler Filling system which is made of titanium, the only material resistant to ink aggression.
The final addition to the supreme characteristics of the Visconti - Homo Sapiens Bronze Fountain Pen is the utilisation of the 23ct palladium 'Dreamtouch' nib. It is produced from 95% pure palladium and far superior to any of the usual gold nibs used in most fountain pens. To read more about the 'Dreamtouch' nib please click here.
