Possibly the most highly anticipated pen of 2010 the Visconti Homo Sapiens is the first pen ever to be forged from volcanic lava from Mt. Etna in Sicily Italy.
The unique lava material has a high degree of resilience (virtually unbreakable) is flame proof (heat resistant over 100 degrees Celsius) slightly hygroscopic (absorbs hand sweat during use) and is dense to the touch.
Each pen features solid bronze trim and is packaged the new Visconti DVD warranty.
The fountain pen nib is made of exclusive 23ct solid palladium and is available in extra-fine fine medium broad extra-broad and 1.3mm stub. The fountain pen uses a power filler which uses only bottled ink and has an extremely high capacity.

A bit pricey, and the plunger style is a bit stiff - I wish all pens were made as nicely as this one!
The packaging is nice, though I'm a bit disappointed that the presentation case is basically the same case that comes with the low-end Visconti pens, such as the Rembrandt or the van Gogh. I realize this is not an HRH or an SE, but a pen at this price should have a better case. The other thing I noticed is that the mini-CD didn't seem to work well with Win7. Fortunately, the Visconti videos are readily available on YouTube.
From my judgement:
Aesthetics: 9 of 10
Quality/Construction: 10 of 10
Weight and Dimension: 9 of 10
Nib Performance: 10 of 10 (I truly can't imagine a better fine nib, anywhere)
Filling System: 8 of 10 (you have to KNOW how to use the Power filler system)
Cost/Value: 10 of 10 (best nib...great design and quality...expensive, but you can find them for $150 less than MSRP)
I'd recommend this pen to any fountain pen aficionado who wants a high-quality daily user!
