Visconti - Homo Sapiens Bronze Age - Fountain Pen
The Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Fountain Pen is a pen that will truly last the ages, making it a great addition for both experienced and novice writers. Visconti has forged this pen from one of the oldest substances in the world, lava from Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy, then blended it with special resin in a secret, proprietary formula, making writing with the Visconti Homo Sapiens a truly unique experience.
Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Fountain Pen
The Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age is the first volcanic lava pen in the world and it’s a nearly indestructible pen. A pen blended with lava has some incredible qualities, making it the perfect material for writing instruments. Lava gives this pen a high degree of resistance to flame and it’s built to withstand heat over 100°C. This Visconti unbreakable pen is slightly hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs hand sweat during use. It’s dense to the touch, making it comfortable to grip and relaxing to write with. Go ahead, write with it for days in the summer heat. You’ll be amazed at how well it holds up to anything you throw at it.
The Homo Sapiens Bronze Age pen's most unique feature is the 23-karat palladium DREAMTOUCH™ nib, made from 95% pure palladium, available in a Fine, Medium, Broad or Stub point. This nib is the highest value nib ever manufactured in fountain pen history and it requires absolutely no pressure in order to write. Visconti claims an enhancement of 30% in flexibility over any premium 18-karat gold nibs. Palladium makes a superb nib material because it cannot be corroded by inks. The Bronze Age fountain pen's charging system is a high vacuum "push-pull" piston filler and is constructed from pure titanium for total corrosion resistance. All of the trim along the pen is forged from bronze, including the rings, clip and metal accessories. This gives the bronze age pen is characteristic name and allows it to glow with a warm, rosy hue, perfectly matching the essence of this one-of-a-kind volcanic pen.
