For the past 20 years now, Visconti has been reinventing the art of writing; they called it the “Writing Renaissance.”

Prized around the world for their 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 Fountain 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. 

The unique material of this ballpoint pen is virtually unbreakable, heat-proof to over 100 degrees, and is also slightly hygroscopic, meaning that it can absorb the moisture from your hand. The mid-sized nib has been crafted from 95% pure palladium, superseding traditional golden nibs, and is supported by Visconti’s High Vacuum Power Filler, while all metal finishes are made from polished steel.

In short, this is a truly fascinating writing instrument.
