If anyone wants a large bottle of red Super Quink with Solv-X, there's one for sale in The Junk Shop in Greenwich. They also have a half-bottle of (I think) permanent blue-black, and a few large bottles of Swan ink with very little ink in. 

If it's still there in a week or so I might be compelled to buy it myself :)

Wish I could buy this one. But I am nearly 10000 km away. :(

I foolishly bought a couple bottles of Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black on eBay a few years ago for $12 each. They looked like they were made in the late 60s. The labels showed they were from a shop in Salt Lake City, Utah. And when I cracked them open I found they had faded, maybe they sat in a shop window in the hot sun for decades. I still have them. The ink is now a grayish color. Its still usable but no longer blue-black as originally.

My mistake was buying on eBay. I love Pelikan 4001 Blau-Schwarz, in fact its my favorite ink. When I learned it couldnt be sold in this country anymore due to prohibited content I jumped on these eBay bottles, not realizing I could buy from Cult Pens online from UK anytime. But later I visited Munich, Germany and put in a lifetime supply!
