For the past twenty years now, Visconti has been reinventing the art of writing; they called it the “Writing Renaissance.”

Prized around the world for their craftsmanship and dedication to their craft, Visconti’s pens have been present at many a significant event. Visconti approaches the design and craftsmanship of their writing instruments with the passion and beauty for which Italians are renowned, paying homage to the advancement of civilisation and the triumphs of art.

The Homo Sapiens Ballpoint Pen might just be one of the most unique pens around; pick it up, and you’ll notice it has an intriguing weight and feel. This is because each pen from the Homo Sapiens range possesses a barrel made from basaltic lava, taken from Mt Etna in Sicily.

This unique material of this ballpoint pen is virtually unbreakable, heatproof to over one hundred degrees, and is also slightly hygroscopic, meaning that it can absorb the moisture from your hand. A twist-action retract mechanism brings forth a brilliant, smooth ballpoint nib, while all metal finishes are made from polished steel.

In short, this is a truly fascinating writing instrument.

Homo Sapiens Ballpoint Pen features:
  • Designed and manufactured in Italy.
  • Barrel made from basaltic lava, taken from Mt Etna in Sicily.
  • Polished stainless steel highlights.
  • Twist-action retraction mechanism.
  • Writes with brilliantly smooth ballpoint action, in black ink.
  • Beautifully presented in a Visconti gift box.

Length: 13cm.
