Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Visconti Homo Sapiens Lava Ash White Fountain Pen, which comes with a standard Visconti presentation box (including branded outer) and unstamped information booklet. The pen has been lightly used and is presented in overall excellent condition – it’s offered at a special price as there is some ruthenium-plating loss on the nib.

 

 

 

 

 

The Colours collection is a relatively recent addition to the iconic Homo Sapiens lineup. The barrel and cap are crafted from the same balsatic lava from Mt.Etna, but this example has a crisp white finish. The trim is ruthenium plated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 a 14k extra fine nib.

 

 

 

 

The important details are as follows…

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”.
