With the recent price hike (in terms of €/ml) of Sailor's popular Four Seasons inks, I have been subconsciously treasuring the 50ml bottles that I have left. Most of them are either unopened or 95% full, so it's a stupid thing to do, but at the heart of it lies, of course, the "fear" of running out and then standing before the decision to buy 20ml at the very same price.
This is not supposed to be a discussion about whether the price hike is justified or not. As a knowledgeable member put it in the discontinuance PSA thread, the decision was probably made with the Japanese market in mind, not the international one, and the intricacies of Japanese culture, which sounds plausible to me - nevertheless, I won't be repurchasing my current favourites in 20ml bottles if I can find something that is reasonably close. If anyone has recommendations for inks that look the same as Sailor's, please feel free to post them here!
