Visconti | Homo Sapiens Dark Age Collection
HOMO SAPIEN DARK AGE COLLECTION. Made of Lava with a Flexible 23kt Palladium Nib, Ruthenium Plated. 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. Conceived for serious writers, the material comprising this pen is as ancient as the world itself: lava from Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy (Europe*s largest active volcano). Nevertheless, it has several characteristics that make it unique to and ideal for writing instrument manufacturing. Visconti has produced a material containing over 50% of pure basaltic lava, catalysed together with resin in a patented formula. The Dark Age collection is enhanced with dark graphite gray trim. The Pen Body Material: Lava is virtually unbreakable: Lava has a high degree of resilience, so it can easily absorb shocks. Flameproof: Visconti Lava has a resistance to over 200 degrees Fahrenheit of heat. Slightly hygroscopic: It allows for absorbing hand moisture during use. Dense at touch: It offers the best possible finger-relaxing grip. The Nib: The fountain pen is enhanced with Visconti*s large, flexible 18kt gold Perfect Touch nib, available in F, M, and 1.3mm Stub widths, and Visconti*s large, flexible 23kt Palladium Dreamtouch nib available in EF and Broad widths. Both style nibs are further ruthenium plated. There is a $35 extra charge for the EF and Stub nibs.
