Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Lava Maxi Fountain Pen (Rose Gold PD Nib)

Now with a Rose gold colored Palladium nib!

The pen is made from a material that is as unique as the world around us: lava from the Etna volcano. Lava has many characteristics that make it very unique in the manufacturing of writing instruments. Visconti has successfully produced a material containing over 50% pure basaltic lava, catalyzed together with resin in a formula that is patented and obviously kept secret. The extraordinary characteristics of basaltic lava practically transform it into a material perfectly fit to writing instruments.

Visconti lava fountain pen characteristics:
Virtually unbreakable: It has a high degree of resilience
Flame-proof: Visconti lava has a resistance to heat of over 100°C
Slightly hygroscopic: allowing it to absorb hand sweat during use
Dense: to the touch, allowing the best possible finger-relaxing grip

Unquestionably new in the range of materials employed in the making of fountain pens

All metallic parts of the pen were inspired by the Bronze Age. The Bronze Age, almost contemporary to the invention of writing, marked the dawn of human civilization. The clip, the decorative rings and the metal accessories, with the exception of the piston, are all in bronze.

The high vacuum power filler charging system is made of titanium, the only material resistant to ink aggressiveness.
