We have been the first to use lava for the creation of a pen. Mount Etna’s lava is crushed into a fine dust that is combined with resin. Once the fountain pen has been molded into shape and polished it feels soft to the touch. All the metal parts are covered in a shiny black protective layer.

Clip and closure

Our laser engraved logo stands out sharply on the classic arched Visconti clip.

The Homo Sapiens Dark Age closing mechanism is our patented hook safe lock system.


Lava can only be produced in pieces no longer than 8 cm. Our artisans shape every piece one by one using custom made machines and specialised techniques.

Before the pieces are assembled, the pen parts are carefully polished to create a soft leather-like texture.
