Welcome to the forum, Mr. Hobo. I'm glad to see that there is at least one thing we agree upon: knives are not meant to open tin cans. I bet that we can find other grounds of agreement if we try.
If you take a moment to post a pic, somebody might be able to make an intelligent suggestion. I believe that Spyderco, at one point, offered a reblade service for something like $35. I am not a Spyderco employee, so I don't know if this is still an option. You could email or call customer service and find out.
Depending on size / location of chip, it could be trivial to essentially grind out. There have been guys who broke off significant portions of their blade, and then cut a bit further back, reground the edge, and ended up with a very fine finished product that looks and functions just great.
You might want to learn how to do that. Or one of use could recommend a knifemaker to do that for you.
