Homo Sapiens Collection: Volcanic Lava Over Size 

For the first time in the writing instrument world, a pen has been forged out of lava.

Our artisans follow a secret procedure that combines the basaltic lava from Mount Etna to resin to obtain a surprisingly smooth and pleasant texture.

The cap locks on to the pen with the Visconti hook safe system. A delicate twisting motion suffices to close the pen while it opens by pushing the cap down and turning it lightly.

Visconti lava compound is:

  • Virtually unbreakable, with a high degree of resilience.
  • Flameproof, with a resistance to heat of over 100°C.
  • Slightly hygroscopic, allowing to absorb hand sweat during use.
  • Dense at touch, allowing the best finger-relaxing grip or touch.
  • Unquestionably new, as materials employed in watch cases.

The clip, the rings and the metal accessories are all in bronze: Natural bronze like the antique formula, that does not require plating or protection treatments.

Over the time, Natural bronze alters its original (almost pink) color. It can be easily polished with special cleaning pans.

The Lava material is a natural material; when daily used, the pen keeps its original dark grey color.

If the pen is not used for a while or exposed to strong light it can become light grey. This is a certification of a real bio material. To regenerate the material, it is simple: just treat the pen with a common moisturizer.
