Homo Sapiens Ember Fountain Pen
The Homo Sapiens Ember fountain pen is fitted with Giotto, the 18 kt nib produced by Visconti and made with special carbon fibre processing techniques.
We have selected the compression moulding technique, often used in the production of high-performance automotive components, to process the pen’s materials. This technique maintains the materials’ mechanical characteristics and allows us to reach specific aesthetic results.
This version of our iconic clip inspired by the Ponte Vecchio is made of polished bronze and embellished with an elegant black enamel.

All Visconti products are made in Italy by our skilful craftsmen in our Florence workshops.
Each product undergoes manual processing and is therefore slightly different from others. Each piece we produce is therefore one of a kind.
This pen is made in a 3k plain carbon fibre chosen for its ability to adapt to the complex moulds of writing instruments. The standard modulus carbon fibre is impregnated with tenacious epoxy resins, the same type of resins that are used in the production of structural components for racing cars or motorbikes.
