Wow I can't believe I just risked ruining the Parker Sonnet(Gen 1 Laque Firedance) that my mom gave me, which also happens to be my first ever fountain pen. I saw that the tines were misaligned and bent the lower one, over did it 2 times(first time adjusting a nib, and it was on a pen with actual sentimental value, I know I'm stupid), had to bend it the other way around, got about 8 heart attacks, almost died of cardiac arrest, and finally did it, here are the pics.

Can't see the pictures, but you could find someone to fix it; if it's really really bad you can find nibs and feeds on ebay.

"Page not found". I found a used first generation Sonnet with broken clip for $15 to harvest the nib for my Firedance Sonnet.

Hope it helps.

That is a good nib. Only needs adjustment.

Oh, is it still misaligned? I thought I fixed it :(
Mind telling me what's wrong right now? Thanks!
