your best bet is probably second hand as they have stopped making them, or maybe some continental or american retailers?

its ether a huge oversight or a clever trick by Petzl, as there are tones of people in your position (me included!) who still use the old axes but need picks replacing, but we will eventually be forced to buy the new ones!

Oh! I always used the b pick for everything on my old Quarks. Never had a problem with mixed climbing with them.

mind you if that's all there is will probably have to give them a try.

Apparently the old quark waterice B picks very nearly passed the T rated tests. I heard most picks did pass but there some fails hence having to rate the waterice picks as B rated. On the new quarks the water ice picks are T rated.

I don't like the old quark T picks (as they smash up ice) and after my first set of T picks did all my winter climbing on B picks with no problems and I'm no featherweight.
