For Visconti, the Homo Sapiens Arizona Sunset collection represents a journey full of emotions through the lands of Arizona, where the sunset becomes one with the fiery colors of the desert.

The variety of colors at sunset has been a great inspiration for the Italian craftsmen, who with great care have recreated, using acrylic resin, a harmony of warm brown and amber colours along the entire barrel and cap of the pen.

The Homo Sapiens is a pen with an iconic design, and this limited Arizona Sunset edition is inspired by the sinuous shapes of the desert and the amber hues of the sunset that come to life along the entire body of the pen. The cap closes with a bayonet lock and is equipped with Visconti’s iconic Ponte Vecchio clip. The hardware is made from 925 Silver.

The Homo Sapiens Arizona Sunset is equipped with an 18kt gold nib plated in palladium. The pen uses Visconti’s patented Power Filler Double Reservoir filling system.

The Arizona Sunset edition is limited to 888 pieces.

The collection can be personalized using the well-known Visconti patented My Pen System, with the instant application of the initials, the zodiac sign or a semi-precious stone. The My Pen System applications can be found in our webstore.

The name Visconti has been for the past twenty years a synonym for writing instruments of extraordinary beauty, historically and technologically studied. The fountain pens, rollers and ballpoint pens by Visconti make up a wide range of high quality instruments with a strong identification.

    This is an absolutely gorgeous pen & the pictures do not do it justice.
    Especially if you like warm tones.
    A classic from Visconti, the colour scheme is vibrant , warm and classy
    Well constructed, light in hand and fits in the large size range (IMHO)
    Writing experience was impressive, Starts immediately , no skipping, consistent line variations with a smooth butter nib experience

    The price is a bit stiff on the price … but I’m a cheapo & would say that for any purchases !
    Makes a great desk pen as well as serious work pen (carried in a case etc) to a work desk station or board room meetings

    Appelboom are a great retailer.
    Reasonable prices, Excellent communication ,
    VERY WELL packaged and safely delivered.
    Not to mention they offer a tuning service.

    I would definitely recommend both the pen and the store !

    The homo sapiens pens are wonderful. Excellent feel and performance. This version is particularly beautiful. The (relatively) new nib is smooth and very reliable. I ordered a “Fine”, which works extremely well as a daily writer.
    With passing years, the annual Homo Sapiens demonstrator pen have taken on more and more “color”, with less and less of the “demonstrator” effect. I find this disappointing, because I enjoy seeing the ink in my “demonstrator” pens. The combination of colors make for a beautiful pen, but I would have liked a little less. Additionally, seeing the level of ink in the forward reservoir is impossible on my particular pen – every pen is, of course, a little different.

    This pen has to be seen in the flesh to appreciate just how lovely it is. Photographs simply don’t do it justice! The nib has some bounce which is perfect for feeling the interaction between paper and pen. A pen to treasure.

    Get this pen if you can you won’t be sorry. It has a beautiful pearlescent white swirling with Red/Brown and orange…it’s a Visconti so the nib writes itself across the page
    Not my first Visconti but I did choose this as my first Homo Sapiens
