Visconti has discounted all Midi Sized Fountain Pens and are sold out from Visconti and distributor level. Only a few of these remain…
Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Lava Midi Fountain Pen
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
The clip, the decorative rings and the metal accessories, with the exception of the piston, are all bronze.
