Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Ball Pen NOS
Homo Sapiens is a stunning pen from Visconti. The barrel is made from basaltic lava from Mt. Etna in Sicily. This material has a matt dark grey finish; is virtually unbreakable, heatproof to over 100 degrees C and slightly hygroscopic; which means that it can absorb moisture from your hand. This last property in combination with the warm and surprisingly soft feel of the material means that this pen has a unique quality to the touch.
All metal parts are high-quality polished bronze for superb wear properties. The clip is fully-sprung.
Note: This pen is part of "New Old Stock" so the box might be a little worn/tattered. The refill will be replaced with Schmidt German Nib Refills.
