Homo Sapiens Lava Bronze fountain pen
Try a completely new writing experience with this innovative and sleek fountain pen.
With the purchase of this pen you can request our complimentary My Pen System customisation service during checkout.
The cap locks on to the pen with the Visconti hook safe system. A delicate twisting motion suffices to close the pen while it opens by pushing the cap down and turning it lightly.
For the first time in the writing instrument world, a pen has been forged out of lava.
Our artisans follow a secret procedure that combines the basaltic lava from Mount Etna to resin to obtain a surprisingly smooth and pleasant texture.
