Visconti homo sapiens has been one of the most popular collections in the Visconti stable for long. To ride on its success, Visconti launches yet another innovative fountain pen in the same Lava material series.
The Visconti Homo Sapiens Crystal Dream with twin ink reservoir.
This is an exceptional fountain pen, showcasing all of the unique benefits of the original, award-winning Homo Sapiens with several upgrades and modifications:
Crystal Ink Chamber: The most innovative modification to the body of the pen is the insertion of a large transparent window made from crystal acrylic resin beautifully blending with the lava material of the barrel. A section of lava has been cut out of the pen’s body and a piece of clear crystal acrylic tube is inserted thereby transforming the pen into a demonstrator. This ‘oversize’ window offers the user a view of stored ink inside the pen and the pens ‘double reservoir’ power filling system.
Double Reservoir: The original Homo Sapiens featured a ‘single reservoir’ power filling system. The new Crystal Dream is fixed with the patented ‘double reservoir’ power filler, a vacuum filling system that is easy to use. Patented in 1998, this is arguably the most advanced filling system ever developed in fountain pen history. The user is able to fill the pen with the equivalent of 10 cartridges of ink.
Crystal Ring: The final change is the small ring around the pens grip section. Metal has been replaced with crystal acrylic resin, offering a view of stored ink in the pen’s second smaller ink reservoir.
All trims are made from natural bronze and the cap closes with Visconti’s patented ‘hook safe lock’.
The Homo Sapiens Crystal Dream is a must-have for every Visconti pen enthusiast. To check availability dates do check with us by having a live chat at the link below.
The Homo Sapiens is handmade from hardened basaltic lava sourced from the Mount Etna volcano in Italy, with a trim made of solid bronze. Visconti lava is virtually unbreakable, comfortable, and warm to the touch – and slightly hygroscopic, absorbing moisture from your hand. The basaltic lava is mixed with resin to create this pen.
