Visconti is thrilled to announce the launch of their latest Homo Sapiens collection featuring Jonathan Brooks’ industry famous hand-mixed resin: the Visconti Homo Sapiens Earth Origins Pen Collection. Two pens inspired by the elements that make up our planet, water and earth, each limited to 388 pieces worldwide.
First of all, the four elements come together in the Visconti Homo Sapiens Earth Origins Pen Collection to remind us of the origins of our planet. In addition, earth, wind, fire, and water interact to form the materials of our existence. Inspired by the mythical and primordial forces that shaped our planet and ignited the very spark of human existence, this collection embodies the essence of timeless energy and boundless inspiration.
Secondly, the Earth Origins is available in two vibrant finishes: Water and Earth. Above all, these mesmerizing writing instruments bring forth the essence of the elements, igniting creativity and connection to the very core of existence.
Deep purple hues and intense blue tones interweave with a vibrant iridescent teal bringing life to the “Water” edition. Therefore, these natural resins are mixed and swirled creating images of the dark ocean depths and the glimmering light at the ocean surface. Similarly, each pen is accented by palladium trim to compliment the cool resin tones. The clip is filled with a bright, iridescent teal – an element that ties both editions of the Origins collection.
The “Earth” edition combines intense purple hues with swirls of vibrant gold and shimmering teal resin creating a uniquely intense pallet mix. This incredible combination of resin is complemented by black PVD trims which will transport every pen collector to all regions of our planet. The clip is filled with a bright, iridescent teal – an element that ties both editions to the Origins collection.
Notably, the double-reservoir power filler is a vacuum filling system that is easy to use and has considerable benefits. 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, and thanks to the two reservoirs, prevents ink from leaking during air travel.
Importantly, Visconti’s 18kt gold in-house nib is hand-crafted and manufactured in Florence, Italy. Choose between extra fine, fine, medium, broad, and stub widths. The rollerball uses Schmidt 888 or 5888 rollerball refills.
Finally, the hook safe lock is a revolutionary closing system. Moreover, it’s very satisfying to operate. Importantly, it was created to lock the pen body into the cap. Therefore this prevents the possibility of the pen accidentally unscrewing and leaking inside a pocket or bag. Whether you prefer the fountain pen or the rollerball, you can’t go wrong.
