It seems impossible to believe that Visconti introduced the popular Homo Sapiens series just a few years ago. So many of our customers have selected this popular design, it seems like it has been around for decades. The new Visconti Homo Sapiens Elegance collection is yet another twist on these amazing fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints. Lustrous black resin is now paired with palladium trim. The 23k palladium Dreamtouch nib is featured on fountain pens and is the smoothest nib we have ever tried; but the fill system has changed to accommodate both cartridge or bottled-ink users. Shiny, lighter weight and more economical – those are the differences.
