The Homo Sapien range is a fine example of intuitive craftsmanship, produced precious resins, high-quality steel and black lava from Mt. Etna. The barrel of this unique ballpoint pen features a bold and striking silhouette with a matte-black finish, highlighted by deep black metal trims. Inside the pen is a twist-action mechanism, which easily deploys and retracts the pen nib with a gentle turn of the barrel and cap. Visconti produce each element of the ballpoint with great attention to detail, branding the clip of the pen with their logo as a symbol of high-quality craftsmanship. This rare writing instrument is one-of-a-kind and makes a fantastic writing companion for those with distinct taste.
