Visconti Homo Sapiens Evolution Lava Maxi Fountain Pen




Visconti Homo Sapiens Evolution Lava Maxi Fountain Pen


The Homo Sapiens Evolution, the latest addition to the iconic Homo Sapiens collection. The Evolution combines the unique volcanic lava material used to make the body of the original Homo Sapiens collection, with a specially designed metal cap and grip section crafted from Galvanized steel. The Evolution is equipped with Visconti’s new and exclusive Skeleton nib, giving a modern face-lift to the original design.


Visconti’s lava is extracted from the Etna Volcano in Sicily, Italy. This unique lava possesses special qualities making it the perfect material for writing instruments. Visconti’s lava is virtually indestructible, yet extremely comfortable and warm to the touch; the material is hygroscopic, absorbing moisture from your hand. The dense material has a soft feel offering a comfortable and relaxing grip to write with.


The uniquely engraved design of the cap is repeated on the grip section and blind cap creating beautiful symmetry and the pen cap closes with a screw mechanism. The Evolution is offered as a fountain pen and rollerball. The fountain pen’s vacuum power filler is made of titanium to resist ink corrosion and features

This pen will now be fitted with an 18kt gold nib instead of the 23k Palladium nib pictured.
