Description The Visconti Homo Sapiens ballpoint in Bronze Age 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, quite 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 twist-action ballpoint mechanism is smooth and easy to use, and the refill glides effortlessly across the page. May take 7 - 10 days to ship.
