Here you go.
I tried removing the dried up ink there after soaking the nib in water for several hours and using a toothbrush, but to no avail.
Wow. This is just bizarre. Seeing such a thing for the fisrt time. I have cleaned a few 30 year old pens from my grandfather with dried up ink and haven't encountered such a damage to any of the nibs. Maybe this is a case of a bad nib? You said you bought the pen brand new and inked it up with the ink, so thats possible. Because to eat through stainless steel so quickly and heavily it may require quite strong acidic/corrosive properties. As in if the ink was manufactured by mixing dye and acid! And i don't think thats even possible. Lol. Have you tried the ink in some other pens? Maybe something cheaper?
