The Visconti Homo Sapiens Dark Crystal collection is dedicated to all those looking for a functional and elegant writing instrument, embellished with technical and stylistic features that make it a unique object of its kind.
The new Homo Sapiens Dark Crystal combines the mixture of resin and lava powder from Mount Etna. The black barrel that recalls the slopes of the volcano and the components in dark tones, such as the metal fittings and the 18k nib, give the pen a unique and contemporary elegance. The mixture of resin and Lava powder makes the pen virtually unbreakable and is treated in such a way as to guarantee a particularly pleasant writing sensation.
It takes many features from the popular Homo Sapiens Dark Age, such as the glossy black metallics and the 18k nib finished in ruthenium. The pen is equipped with the famous bayonet lock and the double reservoir power filler, which guarantees a long writing autonomy and protection from accidental ink leaks thanks to the two separate chambers.
Even the smallest components of the pen have received the utmost care and attention to detail. The ink window of the Homo Sapiens Dark Crystal is dark and smokey, perfectly matched with the ring, which is made from smoked transparent resin and showing the name of the collection by dry engraving. The iconic clip is in glossy black brass thanks to a galvanic process and the Visconti logo stands out on the bright ivory background. The logo placed on the pen cap takes up the dark color of the entire writing instrument but can be replaced and customized thanks to our My Pen System.
The Visconti Homo Sapiens Dark Crystal has an 18k gold nib and uses a double reservoir power filling system.
