From Italian pen maker Visconti, the Homo Sapiens Dark Age Oversize is a collector’s item with a commanding presence. It’s handmade with hardened basaltic lava from Sicily’s Mount Etna: the tallest active volcano in Europe. Known for its strength, this lava is virtually unbreakable, smooth to the touch, and slightly hygroscopic, meaning it can absorb the moisture from your hand. It’s complemented by a black pocket clip, trim, and 23-karat palladium nib. Visconti’s Hook Safe Lock capping system prevents the cap from accidentally unscrewing in your pocket and leaking, and the generously sized vacuum power filler is made of titanium to resist ink corrosion. Measuring 5.7 inches capped and 6.8 inches posted, this Dark Age is well suited for those who prefer larger pens.
Note: At check out choose from Extra-Fine (+$30), Fine, Medium or Broad nibs.
