Pen Review: Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze (Oversize)

My most expensive pen purchase thus far, the Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Oversize.

 

It’s a fascinating pen with unique materials (balsaltic lava rock, Palladium nib, bronze).  It writes very smoothly, but it is far, far too wet for regular use.

UPDATE: I did end up taking this to the “specialist” at World Lux in Seattle (where I purchased the pen) to have the nib adjusted.  He did some work to keep it from being quite so wet.  It’s still nice and juicy, but it’s no longer a firehose, so it’s usable now.
