Do water-resistant inks damage pens?

It can happen. Iron-gall/permanent inks are acidic and can corrode the metal parts of your pen, especially if they are constantly exposed to the ink. This can take time, so you probably won’t have a crumbling nib after one use, but it’s wise to practice proper pen care and maintenance.
