Can we get a picture?
Most likely, the bent piece is shot. You'll have to grind it off and reshape the tip from the spine.
If you'd like, I'll fix it for free. You pay the cost of shipping here and shipping back and I'll regrind the tip. I'll TRY to bend the tip back with a brass hammer and wood anvil....but I doubt it'll work.
You can try the same method for bending the tip back and if it doesn't work either send it here to regrind the tip or do it yourself. It's not difficult to regrind the tip....but it's easier if you have a belt grinder and ceramic belts.
