 Product Description

Visconti turned to the Etna volcano to bestow the virtually unbreakable body to this incredibly long lasting writing instrument. The material contains over 50% lava and is mixed with resin to create a fantastically dense, slightly hygroscopic, heat resistant structure that is then polished to provide a beautiful finish that requires no overlay. The bronze accents take their inspiration from the Bronze Age, and their simplistic design sets off the deep basaltic lava perfectly. Bronze accents and a bronze ring engraved with ‘Homo Sapiens’. The Homo Sapiens fountain pen has as standard Visconti’s 23k palladium Dreamtouch nib. The nib requires no pressure to write and the palladium offers qualities of flexibility, originality and resistance to ink corrosion.

  1. Great pen, and always great service

    Posted by KF on 21st Apr 2016

    I ordered this pen when it was out of stock, but Lai made sure to get the pen to me as quickly as possible and it was worth the wait.
    I've used smooth steel and gold nibs before, but this is something else. The nib (I got a Broad) literally feels like writing with butter on glass. No complaints whatsoever in that department.
    The lava texture really is something peculiar, it feels like rubber but warmer, and hard like rock. I also have somewhat oily hands which is a problem for long writing sessions with my pens with steel and resin sections, but with this it never loses grip due to the hygroscopic properties of the material.
    It is a perfect size for me even though I only have medium-sized hands, but it is quite heavy. Someone with smaller hands or who prefers lighter pens (my fiancee for example) would be better suited to the midi or medium size version of this pen.
    The vacuum filler works brilliantly. It holds a lot of ink which is great due to how wet the broad nib is. The only issue is that there is no ink window or way to know how much ink you have left, but if you fill it fully (which I'm able to do with the travelling inkwell) then it lasts me for over a dozen full pages of writing.
    This was a grail pen for me and I was not disappointed in the slightest. 10/10 for both the product and service, highly recommended.
