Visconti Pens - Homo Sapiens Lava Bronze Age Fountain Pen


Extra Fine

Explosive volcanic eruptions and the obsidian formed from the cooling lava prompted early humans to challenge nature, trying to forge tools to hunt and protect themselves for their own survival. With the same creative momentum, Visconti gave modern humans a writing instrument crafted from the same primitive volcanic rock. Hence, a great ancient tool that enabled humans to write their history was turned into a real iconic piece with a perfectly balanced design.
A combination of basaltic lava from Mount Etna, catalyzed with nylon resin according to a secret process, generates an unbreakable, hygroscopic, velvet-like compound, achieving a revolutionary result for the world of writing instruments.


This collection is available in fountain pen, rollerball, and ballpoint in multiple trim colors with Visconti’s patented power-filling system. The Bronze Age is accented with solid bronze trims. The Dark Age is accented in marine-grade steel plated with a black ruthenium plating. The Magma is accented in marine-grade steel with red anodized trim. The Evolution is accented in galvanized steel that is uniquely etched with a wave pattern.
