I haven't had problems with opening my pens before, but all of the sudden my Ahab section does not want to open up for me. I can get the cap unscrewed, but the neck of the section is just too small and slippery to unscrew from the barrel. I must have really tightened it hard the last time I closed it, but now I'm scared it will never open again.

Any suggestions?

Try running the hot tap over it to expand the plastic.

That actually worked. I'm surprised, I figured both sections would heat at the same rate, but that wasn't the case. Thank you, DavidDecorator.

You're welcome, works on jars of Marmite as well.
