A black Visconti Homo Sapiens Skylight Steel Age Fountain Pen on a white background with SEO keywords: Coles of London pen. A Coles of London handmade Visconti Homo Sapien Dark Crystal Fountain Pen, inspired by the Visconti Homo Sapiens collection, set against a white background.

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.

The pen caps using the Visconti 'Hook Safe Lock', a revolutionary capping system so you can cap a pen without worrying about the cap accidentally unscrewing in your pocket and leaking. The fountain pen's vacuum power filler is made of titanium to resist ink corrosion, and it features a rose gold-plated oversized 18k gold nib to match the trim color (note: our images may still show the old 23kt palladium nib).
