At first I have been very happy with the Wing Sung 698 but this morning I noticed cracks in the thread of the section.

There are seven larger ones and (as visible below the fin) many more smaller ones. And I haven't disassembled the pen …

 

Is this an exception?

 

Addendum: I have now disassembled the pen and have noticed that the section was screwed on incredibly tight (at first I thought that I couldn't unscrew it). I now have the impression that the cracks are the result of excessive force during assembling. Anyway, I won't use the pen any longer because I am afraid that the problem gets worse and the pen will leak.
