Hello from Cyprus!


The Cypriot

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone on the Fountain pen network!

 

I hail from the beautiful island of Cyprus, the place that inspired the Caroube de Chypre ink by J. Herbin. A land where the fountain pens are definitely not common.

 

I have been using fountain pens for close to 15 years but only recently got into collecting pens and just discovered the amazing world of inks! Like mentioned above, fountain pens are not common here (except for some parker pens and 1-2 parker inks) and people are still surprised if the see you writing with a fountain pen.

This make me a bit of an oddity I guess, but it's something I'm used to as I am also left-handed.

I recently also discovered that mr. Lambrou is a Cypriot, which made me feel much better about how oblivious of fountain pens my country is.

 

I love the whole process of inking, writing, capping and uncapping, cleaning and maintaining fountain pens, and it's what drove me to pursue it further.

I am generally a collector of various items, especially things connected to history.

 

Always open to having a chat with people around the globe!

 

Anyway, looking forward to connecting with you all and learning more about this amazing hobby/lifestyle.

Welcome @The Cypriot. Very well put and most of us know exactly what you mean.

I am sending my greeting from a South Pacific Island, far away from beautiful Cyprus.

Modern fountain pens are becoming more common now but many vintage pens arrived with the emigres from the UK and Europe.

 

I look forward to joining you around the topics.

 

Cheers, Pale.Ink.Tom

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY
