Visconti Homo Sapiens Evolution - 18kt M nib

Does the Homo Sapiens need any introduction? It's an iconic and unique pen, made with a basaltic resin compound, so you're writing with lava!

This version has a guilloched steel cap, section and piston knob, and the steel clip and trim give it a very different look to the rest of the Homo Sapiens range. The cap is a screw fit rather than the usual hook safe mechanism, and it's a heavier pen than the standard Homo Sapiens as a result of the metal - however the section offsets the piston knob nicely, so it's well balanced.
