Celebrating the home of Visconti, this limited edition Homo Sapiens is a vision in shades of verdant green and deep brown. With simple lines accentuating the imposing body and coupled with shining palladium plated trim, the Tuscan Hills portrays the iconic Italian landscape of olive groves and vineyards. Manufactured from durable acryloid resin, the semi-transparent barrel allows a glimpse of the fountain pen’s inbuilt filling mechanism and showcases Visconti’s unerring attention to detail. The superior flexibility of the 23k Palladium nib allows the user to write with almost no pressure on the paper, creating an ultra-smooth writing experience. Finished with the signature curved Visconti clip and ‘Homo Sapiens’ etched onto the pen’s central band, the Visconti Homo Sapiens Tuscan Hills Fountain Pen has an evocative style perfect for stirring the imagination.
