    I have no idea how this happened. I took it out of my Octa today and it was like this. I will try to undent it with a large nail or something else.

    Mine looks almost exactly like that. Doesn't bother me in the least. I kinda like battle scars as long as they don't interfere with the function of the pen.

    Only because you said it was a dent would I have known it. I would have thought that that was part of its design. :p

    I eventually got the dent out. Not perfect by far but not obvious anymore. I took a lot of work and that made me think. I don't think the dent happened through some kind of impact, the pen is too tough for that (my Quark AA is right next to it in my Octa and it is perfectly fine). I suspect a change in air pressure helped out. Although there had been no change in altitude, in the last two weeks weather alternated between heat and storms, so air pressure changed constantly. The dent itself was just too perfect, the tip of the pen practically inverted and I don't think it would look like that through mechanical force. Sure, seems a bit far fetched and difference in air pressure was probably not enough, I think a mild bump helped to get the process started.
