Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age - 23kt Palladium 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.

This pen was preloved when I bought it, 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.
