The most iconic and popular pen from Visconti but with new features: an oversized ink window cut into the pen barrel, a smaller ink window behind the grip section, and a double reservoir power filler! Introducing the Homo Sapiens Skylight Steel Age.

The Homo Sapiens is handmade from hardened basaltic lava sourced from the Mount Etna volcano in Italy, with a trim made of solid bronze. Visconti lava is virtually unbreakable, comfortable and warm to the touch - and slightly hygroscopic, absorbing moisture from your hand. The basaltic lava is mixed with resin to create this pen.

The pen caps using the Visconti 'Hook Safe Lock', a revolutionary capping system so you can cap a pen without worrying about the cap accidentally unscrewing in your pocket and leaking. The fountain pen's double reservoir vacuum power filler is made of titanium to resist ink corrosion, and it features a rhodium-plated oversized 18k gold nib to match the silver trim color.
