Visconti Homo Sapiens Dark Age Ballpoint Pen
Visconti shook the fountain pen field with a breakthrough both in terms of design and materials when the original Homo Sapiens Bronze was launched. Carved from pure basaltic lava and enriched with resin materials, the pen enveloped the strength of ancient powers, juxtaposing its volcanic nature to a soft and smooth writing experience thanks to its Dreamtouch 23Kt Palladium nib. This award-winning writing tool was followed by the Homo Sapiens Steel Age which in turn issued steel trims. Five years has passed since then, still the Homo Sapiens is one of Visconti's very signatures. Virtually unbreakable and naturally hygroscopic, the Homo Sapiens comes now in its Dark Age version, symbolizing Middle Age's mysticism and its turmoil. The metal trims and 23kt palladium nib have gone through a super resistant ruthenium PVD treatment; their glossy black look and the peculiar contrast they create against the matte gray pen's body color makes the pen elegant and modern. The Homo Sapiens Dark Age is the perfect offspring of Middle Age's ancient mysteries with Man's creativity and progress. The Homo Sapiens Dark Age is available in fountain, rollerball, ballpen and pencil. The fountain is available in both midi (piston fill) and maxi (power filler) sizes, both enhanced with Visconti's 23kt Palladium Dreamtouch nib.
