Description Visconti is thrilled to announce the launch of their latest Homo Sapiens collection featuring Jonathan Brooks' industry famous hand-mixed resin: the Homo Sapiens Earth Origins. Two pens inspired by the elements that make up our planet, water and earth, each limited to 388 pieces worldwide. The four elements come together in this collection to remind us of the origins of our planet. Earth, wind, fire, and water interacting 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. Available in two vibrant finishes: Water and Earth. These mesmerizing writing instruments bring forth the essence of the elements, igniting creativity and connection to the very core of existence. Double-Reservoir Power FillerA 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. 18k Gold NibVisconti's 18kt gold in-house nib hand-crafted and manufactured in Florence, Italy. Hook Safe LockThis revolutionary closing system is very satisfying to operate and was created to lock the pen body into the cap to prevent the possibility of the pen accidentally unscrewing and leaking inside a pocket or bag. Earth 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 ruthenium 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. This Earth edition is #47 of 388, and is available in a FINE nib. The Homo Sapiens fountain pen can also be customized with the magnetized MyPen System, such as natural stones, zodiac signs, or initials that you can swap into the finial in place of the Visconti logo coin. As of April 2023, all 14k and 18k gold Visconti nibs have been inspected and tuned by a nib worker and despite our best efforts to fully clean each pen may exhibit some minor traces of ink in the nib and feed, but have in no way been filled or previously owned or used.
