Visconti | Homo Sapiens Collection
More than 5,000 years ago, with the invention of writing, the pre-history of humankind ceased and the Homo Sapiens marked the dawn of human history. The first great civilizations arose and the development of sciences such as geometry, astronomy and engineering commenced. Visconti conceived the Homo Sapien writing instruments line for serious writers, for whom a fine writing instrument remains a traveling mate to share the same civilization for which writing helped create. The material comprising this pen is as ancient as the world itself: lava from Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy (Europe*s largest active volcano). Visconti has produced a material containing over 50% of pure basaltic lava, catalysed together with resin in a patented and obviously secret formula. The material becomes a special lava blend with extraordinary characteristics that practically make it perfectly fit for writing instrument production. The Homo Sapien writing instruments have a feel unlike any other. As a result of the dreamtouch 23kt palladium nib, the fountain pen is like writing on air! The fountain pen features Visconti*s high vacuum power filler, made of titanium. Lava is virtually unbreakable: It has a high degree of resilience, so it can easily absorb shocks. Flameproof: Visconti Lava has a resistance to over 200 degrees F of heat. Slightly hygroscopic, it allows for absorbing hand moisture during use. Dense at touch, it offers the best possible finger-relaxing grip. The Dreamtouch 23kt Palladium Nib is likely that with the highest content of palladium ever manufactured in fountain pen history. It requires no pressure in order to write, tracing thoughts and words gently for a dream-like handwriting... and more flexible than 18 kt gold… for any type of writing. Also available is a very limited Writer*s Edition Set featuring the Fountain Pen, Rollerball and Ball Pen accented in sterling silver. The fountain pen comes with six separate 23 kt Palladium nibs, XF/F/M/B/BB/STUB 1.3mm. Added accessories include six bottle of ink, extra gel refills, a tool for changing nibs, etc.
