Hidesouly Crossed Tines

This question concerns a feather quill, rather than a fountian pen, but I'm pretty sure the concept regarding the tines is similar enough.

 

Sometime today it would seem that the tines on my nib have become crossed. I've never had this happen before and I'm not exactly sure how I can repair it. Simple finger pressure won't work.

 

Any ideas?

 

Cheers!

Hmmm. If you flex the tines against the page to widen the stroke and then (ill-advisedly) rotate the pen while it is flexed, you might be able to accomplish that, I guess. If it seems like that's what might have happened, the maybe try to reverse the process that created the problem. Without a picture, that's all I've got. Tines don't normally cross spontaneously.

I know my id is "mhosea", but you can call me Mike. It's an old Unix thing.

Yes, please, maybe a photo or two of the nib in question, might help here, if that's feasible.
