The Homo Sapiens Dark Age pen is what I expected from its description. It is wonderfully smooth to write with, takes no pressure to start and maintain the ink flow, and, given its weight and size, writes most easily without the cap posted. The texture of the lava-stone mix used to make the body of the pen is pleasing to the touch. This Visconti is solidly constructed and well-designed. I look forward to using it as my primary pen for a long time to come.

I have had one of the first Homo Sapiens Bronze fountain pens (embossed clip) in extra fine for years now and wanted another lava fountain pen. I’m in engineering and pretty rough on pens. My Deltas and Auroras have fine scratches on the finish. My Visconti lava has been beat to death and looks like it did the day I got it, except now the bronze has a beautiful orange patina that matches the black lava perfectly. My bronze wrote excellent from the start and is a true xf on good paper and medium on cheap copy paper. When I chose the dark ages in fine I was concerned about being able to use on cheap paper, but it too is a medium on copy paper and a fine on good paper. I don’t apply pressure when writing and my letters are small to medium so everyone’s mileage may vary. Shipping was super fast from Pen Chalet and the communication was top notch when making my decision between xf and f. I will definitely place future orders.

I love this pen so much I bought it twice. Shortly after receiving my first, I lost it. I promptly ordered a second because I liked it so much. Both pens write exceptionally well. I just wish I could have found the first one.

I love this pen! It is large, uses a Power Filler system, and the nib writes very well. Mine is a Bronze Age with a Fine nib. I had read a lot about these pens having nib problems, but mine is excellent.

Outstanding service from Pen Chalet, I purchased the midi for a friend who did not want it, Returned to Pen Chalet without a problem and purchased the Maxi for myself. Great writing pen and I'm using the new Pelinkin ink with no problems.
