Need a picture but 'hard to see' chips are actually more common that you might believe. You should be able to hone it out. Did you get the barber's hone with the kit? If so, you could probably take it out with that. Go slow, use water as a lubricant and maybe lather for the later stages of polishing. Use the pasted paddles to finish it.
If you have trouble, PM me. I can fix it for you for no charge except for shipping.
