Visconti fountain pens always have a unique design sensibility, but the Homo Sapiens Dark Age is perhaps the most distinctive of all the many memorable designs produced by this artisanal Italian company headquartered in Florence. The pen utilizes Visconti's patented Power Fill system, which gives it a generous ink capacity and allows it to be filled using any bottled fountain pen ink.

As with any pen we sell, the Homo Sapiens Dark Age qualifies for our complimentary nib tuning services, which help ensure that your pen will have writing qualities equal to its eye-catching appearance. In addition, our optional nib customizations can provide added flair and distinctiveness to your writing on the page, and can make this pen a valuable tool for the professional or amateur calligrapher.

We are an authorized Visconti dealer, and every pen is carefully tested and inspected before shipping to you.
