I while ago some gave me a nice Spyderco.  It is in overall good shape except for the tip is broken off (see pics).  What should I do?

 

I know that I can send it to Spyderco and for $25, they will reprofile it.  That's one option.

 

However, I am open to ideas on what else can be done with it.  Anyone know how well a tanto point would work on it? If so, I'd need a recommendation on who can do the work.  Just looking for a few other ideas in case there's something cool I haven't thought of.

Grind it flat on the end & use it as a flatblade screwdriver?

I have a hunch that is how the tip got broken off in the first place.  :)

I don't see spending the $25 when a little time with a file would return it to service.  I'd probably file it off flat.

It's just a utility knife, use it until you really mess it up THEN send it back to Spyderco and make it worth the while.

A little time on a stone will put a edge on the flat af the tip. It will still cut better than you might think.

I have an old spyderco endura that suffered a similar "durability test" and emerged with a similar broken blade tip to show for it.

A few minutes on the bench grinder (light passes to not overheat the blade), and I know have a Spyderco Rescue profie.

(Just round it over with a file, no need to spend $25)

I've got a chip on the end of my cutting edge. I need a good grind too.
