I'm an idiot. I've used and abused my beloved Spyderco Paramilitary 2 S110V Knife for about a year and half. The blade has stayed pristine. Today I was untangling wires and used it to cut through a thicker wire and checked afterwards and noticed two tiny chips on the edge. They're tiny so should I worry about it? Since they're so small could I send it in to get sharpened to get them out? Or would that work? They're tiny but my heart is broken. I know it will happen with use but it doesn't make it any easier. So, what do you all think? Should I worry about it or? Is it easily fixed since they're so small? Picture is below.

If you feel that badly about it you can always send the knife to me for proper disposal.
:rolleyes::p
Like everyone else just sharpen, use and enjoy.

That's nothing, my knives suffer worse than that, sometimes much much worse, at least weekly.

I did a dumbass thing a few months back and took a swing at some free-hanging phone cord with my S110V Native 5. It left a tiny nick in the edge like the one you pictured. I'm not worried because it will come out eventually after sharpening

Think of the "edge" as a constant work in progress. Giving up molecules of steel in use, giving up molecules of steel when re-creating a working edge. Over and over.
