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.

I debated for a long time (daily for weeks) before I decided to get it. This is the smoothest writing pen in my collection, which is largely Pelikan and Visconti. I never thought a pen would top Pelikan M800, but this one does.

This is a beautiful pen. I love writing with this pen. It has quickly become one of my favorite pens. one of the main things I love about this pen is that it starts writing immediately after I change the ink cartridge. Visconti has found a way to make the the most aesthetically beautiful pens, that are reliable and makes writing enjoyable. Great Pen!

My first Visconti. Smooth, juicy nib, Super cool filling system (vacuum). The cap lock is awesome. I think is my new favorite pen. Not cheap but I think it is worth it.

It did not fit my Pelikan 1000. Then again, that's a huge nib for this. Works extremely well with other pens. I love this a more than my Pineider traveling ink bottle. The price was great at Pen Chalet and with free shipping I had to jump at the deal.

Purchased after having some issues getting a Visconti Homo Sapiens fountain pen to fill properly. This did indeed solve that issue. As well as providing a solution to how quickly the Homo Sapiens can run dry. By having a reserve vial of ink to take on the go.

I have also discovered it also works just as well filling vacuum fill fountain pens of other manufacturers.

While one can always quibble about pricing and such, I am pleased with this purchase. Pen Chalet had a fair and competitive price, plus service and shipping were top notch.

This is an excellent pen. It writes very smoothly, and it is comfortably weighted. I must add that I had a couple of questions about the pen, and Pen Chalet responded immediately. It is great to have excellent service in this Internet World.

OMG - what a great pen. Love the look, the feel, just a great pen. Writes like a dream. I do wish I had purchased an EF instead of a F. But none the less - JUST WOW.

Traveling
The Visconti Travelling Inkwell is one of my favorite fountain pen accessories. Its design and style are unmatched. While it's a tad expensive, the fact that it fits in a pen case and works with a wide range of pens puts it ahead of the competition.

Traveling
This traveling ink well is awesome! It has been in my satchel loaded with Majestic Blue for almost a month with no leaks or issues. I had need to fill a Lamy Safari with the cut-outs on the grip section, and I was curious if it would seal properly. No worries, it worked flawlessly without a single drip. I also have the competing Visconti version, which is double the price. This one works just as well and seems to hold a touch more ink.

Pininfarina Disegno
I love this pen. Visconti always produces great pens, stylish and functional. The Pininfarina has a great deco look. And I always like the spring clip, that helps keep the pen in my pocket. And great price from PenChalet.

Van Gogh
OK, I bought this pen in the Starry Night finish. I like it and I love the pen, but I was disappointed in the color. It didn't have nearly as much variation in the color as I was hoping. Still, I love the pen but am frankly thinking about ordering another one - that I can either see a picture of first or buy in person.

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.
