Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Maxi Fountain Pen, which comes with its Visconti presentation box (including branded outer), polishing cloth and unstamped information booklet. The pen has been very lightly used and is presented in overall fantastic condition.
This is the pen that started off the iconic Homo Sapiens collection and it’s still as popular all these years later. The barrel and cap are crafted from the balsatic lava from Mt.Etna. The trim is the classic Bronze and we’ve not polished this, so it has a lovely light patina.
The pen features the patented double reservoir power filler – you simply unscrew the end of the barrel, pull up the rod, place the nib in an ink bottle and push the rod back down to fill! It’s one of our favourite filling systems and the ink capacity is huge.
The pen is fitted with an 18k extra fine nib.
The important details are as follows…
Nib: Extra Fine
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
