What choices do I have??

Kershaw began its foray into the knife business sometime during 1974. The company was originally based in Portland Oregon, but most early knives were manufactured in Japan. The first US manufacturing plant was opened in 1997 & the company currently offers knives made in the U.S., Japan, & China. Pete Kershaw (an ex Gerber salesman) started the business.

I bought this today off eBay. Do you think kershaw will be able to sharpen this out or will they want to replace the blade on it? Thanks guys

G&G,
I don't know about Kershaw policy but since it's a used knife, why not do it yourself? Lots of knives used for EDC(every day carry) have been reshaped because they have been tipped as yours has or intentionally re-shaped to fit a specific need. I have quite a few that have been re-shaped and are very functional and yours should be an easy fix as there is not a lot missing from the tip.
Just my 2 cents. :)

Edit: I know this is an all together different type of knife but to support what I mentioned about re-shaping a blade, here are three 6275s, top and bottom were both tipped much worse than your Kershaw, they are still functional as an EDC. The unmolested, intact, center knife was a gift from gsmith7158.

Kershaw will sharpen the blade for free (you pay shipping to them). I don't know what they will say or do about a tipped blade if you send it to them just for sharpening. However, they will replace the blade for $10.
