Use a file. Its the quickest way.

I actually sharpen my knives. So, (depending on how bad/deep it was), Id leave it alone, use the knife, then sharpen as normal. Eventually it will come out, though it could take a long time.
Just look at it as a single serration.

You can dress up chips, broken tips, whatever. If ain't bad I would leave it alone.

Spent about 3 hours making a completely new edge on one of my knives that an electric sharpener mangled. A single chip, 10 minutes.
Sharpen it as it needs it, eventually the nick will disappear. How'd you nick the blade? What steel is it?

I am no knife expert by any means, but I think trying to remove it will only cause more harm than good. To remove it will thin the blade. I have several knives with knicked blades and tried removing one..... lets just say it was a mess. Now I just sharpen as usual and go about life.

Your best bet is to make the chip just a little bigger by using a fine stone to polish the spot that's chipped. If the chip has a small crack in it it could grow weakening the blade, so it could be best to buff out any small cracks. then just sharpen your knife over time till the chip is gone.
