Mt. Etna on the east coast of Sicily serves as the source for the basaltic lava used for this surface of this fountain pen, while ruthenium trim and black-coating over the 23k palladium nib serve to accent the smoky hues of this writing instrument. The pen fills using Visconti's proprietary vacuum Power Fill system, which provides for a generous ink capacity and allows for the use of any bottled fountain pen ink.

Our complimentary nib tuning services will give this pen writing qualities every bit the equal of its striking appearance, and our optional nib customizations can also be used to provide added line-width variation to your writing on the page. We are an authorized Visconti dealer, and every pen will be tested and inspected before shipping to you.
