  1. Hi, I recently bought a Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze, which is always oversize if I am correct, with a F nib. After writing one fill of ink with it I thought the amount of pages written was quite small, so I inked it again, and started to test it. It wrote exactly 5 A4 pages. Just to make a comparison David vs. Goliath I inked a Kawecosport vintage piston filler with a OM nib, which writes similarly wet, but with a slightly thicker line, and wrote the same text again. To my suprise, I wrote also 5 pages with this small pen. So the ink capacity of the Visconti appears laughable. How I
  2. The (Japanese) Elephant in the Room Pilot Custom Urushi I won’t bore you with the specifications, basic descriptions, or construction components of this pen, because they have been covered in other reviews of this pen. Instead, I’d like to tell you how I feel about owning this pen, which I received about a month ago... Long enough for the honeymoon to be over and to be able to take a critical look at this pen. Some background: I have been using fountain pens since I was about ten years old. I have a small collection of top-drawer pens, including Montblanc 146 & 149, Pelikan M800 &am
  3. I have been fascinated with the Visconti Homo Sapiens. I can't really afford it, but my wife accidentally threw away my Pilot Falcon, and I'm infuriated. Because the pen costs a fortune, I want to get everything right the first time (wow, I sound like a Wells Fargo employee). Here is my breakdown ... MIDI vs. Oversized: It doesn't seem that much different in weight, and I can save quite a bit of money by getting the MIDI. Ultimately I decided, however, to get the Oversized, because of the Vacuum fill, which gives about .5 more mg of ink. At first, I felt the smaller pen would be just f

    Homo Sapiens Elegance

    Visconti is releasing a new Homo Sapiens, hopefully next week. It's made in black polished resin, with palladium rings and trims. Visconti said it's a more practical model, for a daily use, because of the material and the filling system, that here is converter/cartridge, even for the Oversize model. It's a bit less expensive, though. http://www.giardino.it/pens/IMMAGINI/copHSelegance.jpg
  5. First things first: mods, if this is in the wrong place, please pardon the mistake and move it as necessary. I'm writing to gush some praise at Dan Smith (of FP Geeks fame) and his nib services. About six months ago, I bought a Visconti Homo Sapiens 25th Anniversary (variant on the steel age oversize), with the 1.3mm stub nib, from somebody here on the forums. I got a great deal on one of my grails, and the pen was in beautiful condition when it arrived. This was a huge investment for me as a new hobbyist, far and away my most high-end pen. I was nervous about it given the legendarily un
  6. I have always thought the Visconti Homo Sapiens was one of the most beautiful pens ever, not to mention the lava material being so unique. I’ve always wanted one and finally got it. However, I knew I could have a problem with inconsistent ink flow and wetness, because so many others had. I ordered the pen and it was shipped to Mike Masuyama to grind a .9mm Cursive Italic from the broad. Mike does wonderful work, but when I got the pen it was so wet I couldn’t use it on anything but super ink proof papers. Plus, the ink had no character, it was just super dark lines the crinkled the pages.
  7. I've only seen it in pictures, yet members here talk with such reverence for the Visconti, I just gotta know...what is the attraction? Better yet, what's it like to write with one?
  8. Hello everyone, It seems that I have been on the struggle bus lately when it comes to fountain pens. I let a friend borrow a Visconti Homo Sapiens Steel (midi). He took it and noticed that it was semi-flex... he then went full-noodler's on it. What I mean by this is that he exerted the same pressure one would exert on a Noodler's flex pen. The result can be seen here: What can I do about this? Are there Nibmeisters that can fix it? Tom
  9. I may not have been sent on my quest for new pens by God, but I will still purchase them anyway! A throwaway Monty Python reference is always a great way to start off a thread... At the beginning of the school year, I made myself a promise to not buy another pen until 2014 (excluding my birthday and Christmas, of course). Since then, I have saved up money in hopes of pampering myself once I finally reach that time. The pen I originally had in mind (and have been working towards being able to afford) is a Visconti Homo Sapiens. This pen has been on my wish list since I started lurking on FPN
