We are delighted to announce the launch of the highly anticipated
Homo Sapiens Lava Color collection, Visconti's latest addition to the iconic Homo Sapiens series. Visconti re-interprets their flagship pen line with color, a more modern image and a new in-house
14kt gold nib.
We will take 15% off the pricing seen below for pre-orders!
Like its predecessors, the Lava Color is made from Visconti's
well-known and much treasured, lava rock; making the pen virtually unbreakable and very comfortable to write with. The Lava Color
collection is the perfect union of catalyzed Mount Etna basaltic
lava and colored resin using Visconti's patented methods.
This natural combination creates a rugged stone-like feel and
texture with rustic natural colors. The collection is launched in three matte finishes: Blizzard (white), Inferno (red) and Sandstorm (tan),
each pen is accented by black ruthenium trim. The volcanic material features an anti-stain treatment that protects the pen and prevents
ink from depositing on the pen during refilling.
Each finish is available in fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint.
The rollerball and fountain pen feature an exclusive magnetic
closing system which makes opening and closing the pen effortless. The ballpoint operates with a twist. Identical to previous Homo
Sapiens models, the fountain pen fills with Visconti's patented
power filling system but new to the lava color is the introduction of
Visconti's in-house 14kt gold nib.
'In-house' 14kt Gold Nib
The new collection introduces a first from Visconti, a new in-house,
14kt gold oversized nib. The new nib has been engraved with a more contemporary design, but in keeping with tradition Visconti
continue with a crescent moon shaped breather hole, a distinctive
feature of Visconti's precious nibs. Each nib is hand polished and
entirely made in-house: The nib, feed and housing; consequently the entire pen is produced in Florence. Each nib is plated in black
ruthenium to match the color of the pens trim. Available in
EF, F, M, B, and Stub widths.
