    Default Parker Super Quink with Solv-X

    I have a large bottle of the above ink which I believe dates to the seventies, when it cost the princely sum of thirty-seven and a half pence. It appears to be in good condition. I use quite a few vintage inks but I have hesitated about using this one. What do you think? Is Solv-X harmful?

    Itís fine. I use vintage Quink all the time. Solv-X is just some marketing bullshit. Someone on FPN once said it was a combination of phenol and a surfectant.

    I donít know why thereís all this Fear Uncertainty and Doubt concerning Quink . Parker Superchrome/ 51 ink is definitely bad stuff that should never be put in a pen and Parker Penman inks can be problematic, but Quink is just regular, no-nonsense fountain pen ink.

    Parker Blue or Blue-Black Quink with Solv-X is frequently recommended by several fountain pen users as a well known "cleaning ink" for stained converters or barrels.
    I have some and have regularly used it myself although I don't have any vintage pens with rubber sacs.

    That's great! As I have about a pint of it, it should keep me going for a while.

    Found this ad from the 1940s in one of my books. Thought you'd enjoy it.
