The Dip comes right off- like pulling a piece of tape off the section. Zero damage! Actually often people use Plasti Dip to protect surfaces.
I wish I could enjoy this pen with the naked section. Glad you enjoy your Classic as well!
Have you tried the Intuition Platinum?
Same nib performance, a slightly larger grip, no metal section and no threads or step downs...
I love mine. I still do use the Classic thought, the writing experience is slightly different.
