Through Axle Lip is shredded

I recently purchased a second hand bike with a rockshox reba 15mm through axle. 

I didn't notice when I bought it that the lip of the axle was shredded and now I can't remove the wheel.

 

Any suggestions on a good fix?

Should I just replace the axle or is there a way to fix it?

Bring it to me, I'll get it out for you. And show you how to install it properly so it doesn't get stuck again.

 

Or if you've got a 15mm allen key, you can strip the locking lever and wedge out and there's a hex socket you can turn it out with.

 

Hey Droo, thanks for the offer.

Where are you based?

Is this a Specialized camber by any chance?

Cool. I'll try come through after work today otherwise at 10am tomorrow. 

Do you know how much that new thru axle is going to set me back?
