The Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze edition fountain pen pays tribute to Bronze Age and highlights its significance. It was a period of time when our ancient ancestors forged alloys like bronze by mixing metals like copper and iron. The pen features Visconti's trademark bridge shaped clip with the company's name embossed on both sides. Each pen is equipped with 18kt Gold nib which quickly adapts to your writing style and offers a hassle free writing experience. The body of the pen is made of volcanic rocks from Mount Etna, slightly hydroscopic; the pen absorbs moisture out of your hands while writing.

The cap locks on to the pen with the Visconti hook safe system. A delicate twisting motion suffices to close the pen while it opens by pushing the cap down and turning it lightly.
For the first time in the writing instrument world, a pen has been forged out of lava.
Our artisans follow a secret procedure that combines the basaltic lava from Mount Etna to resin to obtain a surprisingly smooth and pleasant texture.
