The Homosapiens range has been created from basaltic lava rock from mount Etna catalysed with resin to create a unique material that is incredibly strong and very tactile.
The fountain pen features a 23k solid palladium "dreamtouch" nib, a nib created by Visconti that requires no pressure to put down a line, allowing thoughts to flow effortlessly onto the page.
The fountain and roller pens both make use of Visconti's "Hook safe lock" cap closure, the sprung mechanism in the cap interlocks with the grooves on the barrel - a small turn is all that is required to close the pen, when the cap is released the spring pushes the cap into the locks and seals the pen. A gentle push down and twist will quickly remove the cap.
Viscontti Homo Sapien

Got it this week, the extra fine nib. I am very satisfied, worked perfectly right out of the box. The pen feels wonderful in the hand, the lava is warm like ebonite. Also the service was excellent.
