Visconti Pens

Visconti
The Visconti company was founded by Dante Del Vecchio in Florence, Italy in 1988. Each Visconti writing instrument is hand crafted to create the highest level of beauty and artistry. Each Visconti pen is made with the highest quality materials and cutting-edge technology making each item truly a masterpiece. Visconti is truly one of the worlds leading manufacturers of fine writing instruments.

Visconti's vision is truly revolutionary with the materials and components they use such as volcanic lava. First introduced in 2010, Visconti created a collection of fine writing instruments using basaltic lava from Mount Etna. The lava is mixed with a patented resin formula creating a virtually unbreakable material. Not only is it unique but both beautiful and function-able.

Visconti has also worked with artist Claudio Mazzi who paints objects for private collectors and large companies such as Maserati, Ducati and Ferrari. Mazzi has created a number of limited edition pieces that are truly remarkable.

Another remarkable invention by Visconti is the double reservoir power filling system in some of their fountain pens. With the addition of a second reservoir the patented filling prevents leakage and is ideal for the traveler.

Each component of their pens have been improved over time both for performance and quality. These and others are just an example of the ingenuity of the Visconti brand setting themselves apart from other pen companies.

Visconti offers a two year warranty on regular edition writing tools that covers all manufacturer defects. Limited edition pens come with a lifetime warranty.

Pen Chalet is an Authorized Dealer of Visconti pens and writing instruments.

Homo Sapiens Maxi
Pen wrote wonderfully out of the box. I got it in extra-fine which lays down a wet Japanese-fine-like line. The material of the pen is one of a kind, nothing else like it. Fast shipping from Pen Chalet, item as described. Very happy with the purchase.

Homo Sapiens Maxi
I thought the Visconti Rebrandt was smoother than any of my 40 pens...but the Homo Sapiens left me grasping for words to describe it being smoother. I love the look, size...and the feel of this pen in my hand. I literally could not feel it on the Rhodia paper as I saw it flow across the page leaving words in it's wake. Exceptional, and the best way to describe it...like a hot ice pick across smooth flat ice.

Homo Sapiens Maxi
A unique and nicely crafted pen, and the fine nib always starts and writes smoothly with just the right wetness. The feel of the lava rock resin is very pleasant and the bronze trim is perfect and classy. It has a bit more weight due to the metal, but it's very well balanced. The only negatives I can think of are that the feel of capping and uncapping aren't as silky as that on the Visconti pens made from more conventional materials, although that may change with use. And, not having an ink window is a bit inconvenient. Being a special order it took exactly 30 days to arrive, and I wish I had bought one a long time ago.

Just what I needed for my Visconti fountain pen. I prefer bottled ink than cartridge. It fits the fountain pen ( Michael Angelo edition) very well and functions seamlessly.

Homo Sapiens Maxi
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.

Ink Cartridge(7pk)
I had a "need X amount to get free shipping," and got a bottle of the Visconti ink cartridges to get there. I hadn't tried the brand yet, so this was an introduction to it as well.

I think I wrote maybe a page with it, and found it a reasonably decent ink, with not too much wetness, although the green color was a little flat to me. That was all I got to do with it, and I usually need prolonged exposure to an ink to warm up to it. However, my ability to speak authoritatively about this ink disappeared after my husband absconded with it after giving it a try. I haven't seen any of the carts since. He certainly seems to love it, since he won't let me have it back.

I can say that I liked the little case it came in. It was plastic, but it looked a lot like malachite from the swirly color of it. That made it look nicer than simply another plastic case. It also oddly had seven cartridges in it, not the usual six, which made it a nice bargain.

If only I'd gotten to use them more...

Rembrandt Special Edition
One of my favorite pens right now. The 1.5 stub makes my sloppy handwriting look elegant. The finish is amazing...looks like a much higher price point Visconti. Buttery smooth nib with zero issues. Love it!

Homo Sapiens Maxi
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.

Opera Metal
The Visconti Opera Metal True Black edition is a stunning pen with excellent build quality. I experience no issues with the nib that stays wet (medium wet would be the best way to describe it) and doesn't hard start or skip even when left uncapped for a few hours. The pen is perfectly weight both capped and uncapped for my slightly larger hands. The avonial or avionics grade aluminum from which the pen is made has a nice texture and feel to it, which makes the pen feel substantial and I dare say almost indestructible. Even capped the pen does not become unwieldy, but slightly back weighted. Uncapped, the weight distribution is perfect by my writing style and hand size. Combine that with a unique nib and medium wet ink flow, you have a pen that's fun to write with that you will be able to write with for a long time. A full review of this pen exists at the penhabit.com. Overall all worth every penny at the discounted price found at Pen Chalet!!

I bought this just because the price was ridiculous and I just could not pass on it. Second I have wanted to try a Visconti and was always hesitant about the price since folks keep complaining about the nibs in blogs. I did not have an issue with this one. I was planning on having it as a keepsake and now it has joined the ranks of my always inked pens. I do enjoy the magnetic top. I use it posted and its not heavy. I have it in a broad nib and its pretty smooth writing. No scratching at all. I have always been a Pilot chick. I love that their nibs the most but the prices on pen chalet have been so amazing I have branched out and I am grateful as I now have new brands in my collection that I love and Visconti is one of them.

Opera Metal
Absolutely love this pen. I was a little skeptical reading some of the earlier reviews, but glad I went ahead with my purchase, especially at the sale price!

I primarily use this pen for day to day which includes a lot of note taking in my planner. I went with the extra fine nib and have had no irregularities whatsoever. It is silky smooth and gives me a lot more precision than the previous pen that I was using for this purpose (Diplomat Marakesh M Nib). I absolutely love the materials and durability of the aluminum. I do have relatively large hands, so unlike others this is perfectly sized and feels well balanced for my writing style.

Divina
There were initial hiccups as pen was out of stock and pen chalet had to order visconti for oversize green divina in 1.3 stub. I was initially frustrated but the staff communication of pen chalet was prompt and excellent. They explained the situation to me and reassured me that i will get the pen quickly as soon as they get it from visconti.
This is exactly what happened i got the pen with in 4 days after pen chalet got it, keeping in mind that they had to ship it to Saudi Arabia where I'm located. So kudos to penchalet for their efforts and professionalism.
The pen is a beautiful elegant imposing stunner. The wonderful smooth stub nib wrote out of the box without skipping. Altogether im very happy and satisfied with the purchase. Thank you pen chalet.

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.
