Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age - 23kt Palladium EF or 1.3 stub

The Homo Sapiens is a bit of a legend, a grail pen to many and made of a pretty unique material - volcanic basalt from Mt Etna. These pens really are something else - from the 'hook safe' cap to the feel of the basalt, to the fantastic palladium nibs.

Both of these pens were preloved when I bought them, but in excellent condition. I have left the bronze trim to gain a patina - this is natural bronze weathering, so don't worry about polishing it up on return!

Visconti has changed its nibs of late, so be advised that if you buy a HS new after pensharing these, it'll probably be 18kt Au rather than 23kt Pd - some retailers have stock of both and might be able to accommodate requests.

Note - hire cost is for either the stub or the EF; just let me know which you prefer.

If you want to receive both for comparison, just double the hire cost per week :)

Filling system:

Length unposted: approx 130mm
Length posted: approx 175mm (note the cap posts to the piston cap, so perhaps not advisable!)

Used - excellent
