View Full Version : SOLD Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age Maxi Fine Nib

September 27th, 2016, 06:50 PM
I bought this Bronze Age Maxi in August 2016, and it has been inked twice. It's a beautiful pen, and a very smooth and wet writer. "Dreamtouch" is an appropriate name for the nib. I really enjoy the feel and weight of the pen. I love the pen, but hesitate to take such an expensive pen to work, so it has seen little use. Like a previous poster, I think I'll leave it posted here for about a week, and will keep it if it doesn't sell. I've decided that I really need to sell this pen, and will be reducing the price $10 per week (within reason) until it sells.

The bronze has already begun to develop a patina, and looks sort of like rose gold. The patina could easily be polished off if you prefer a shiny look. The pen comes with box, papers, polishing cloth, and a handmade (by me) Horween leather pen sheath.

Asking $420 shipped in CONUS, with international shipping available at extra cost. If interested, please PM me or email geocom13@gmail.com.

Thanks for looking.

First, last, and only price drop to $440. This is essentially a brand new pen at a great price.

OK, I've decided I really should sell this pen, much as I hate to. I've dropped the price $10, and will lower it $10 per week (within reason) until it sells.

I love this pen. If my Pelikan 1000 would sell I'd snatch it up. This is a great seller!

Could you post some close pictures of the nib please? :)

Sure, I can do that tonight. That was dumb, I thought I had posted some.

Have added nib photos. Sorry about the quality - best I can do. When I pulled the pen out to take the photos, I wrote a couple of lines with it. It's truly the most spectacular nib I've written with.

Oh wow, thanks for the photos! They came out great. So how did you end up with a Palladium nib on this beauty? I have one on my Fiorenze, they're beautiful to write with, soft & springy. I was sure Bronze came with the two-tone though?

It's a 2-tone palladium nib. The yellow gold accents are a little hard to see in person, and didn't really show up in the photos. By they way, that's lint on the nib, not scratches - I wiped it with a tissue before takibg photos.
