There are currently no reviews for this product.

Visconti emphasizes the noir side of its design sensibility with this starkly contemporary pen - the Homo Sapiens Dark Crystal is dark and alluring with more than a touch of a steampunk aesthetic.

Visconti's innovative and high capacity double reservoir power fill system allows this pen to use any bottled fountain pen ink. The pen ships in a stylish presentation box, making it particularly appropriate as a very special gift item. We are an authorized Visconti dealer.
