Visconti Homo Sapiens Lava Steel Age Fountain Pen

Visconti celebrates the steel age and adds a new finish to the popular Homo Sapiens pen collection. Bronze trims have been replaced with stainless marine steel trims.  Silver in color, the trim adds a new dimension to the pen. Steel is an alloy that consists mostly of iron and has carbon content between 0.2% and 2.1% by weight. It is a material that defines mankind's economic evolution and the advancement in production processes and technologies. As before, the trims have been combined with Visconti lava to produce a unique writing instrument with incredible properties.


  • Virtually unbreakable: high degree of resilience
  • Flame-proof: heat resistance to heat over 100°C
  • Slightly hygroscopic: absorbs hand sweat during use
  • Dense to the touch: comfortable to grip and relaxing to write with


A new mid-sized fountain pen has been added to the collection. Similar in size to the roller ball, this new fountain pen fills with ink using its piston filler and features the new midi size 23kt palladium nib, available in F, M and B nib sizes.


This new pen is also available in the original oversize fountain pen featuring the original 23kt dream-touch nib with power filler, roller ball, ballpoint and pencil.

Each pen is packaged in the brown leather Visconti case.
