My viking has a wonderfully shiny finish - but I get so frustrated when I accidentally burn the shiny finish around the top of the bowl... BUT I happen to be friends with a very skilled pipe maker. Which is why I'm going to have my friend Nate King (http://www.natekingpipes.com/) do a partial blast around the top of the pipe. Here's my question - how far down should I have him go? Also, I've been considering having him blast a little ring by the metal ring on the stem - but I think that might be going a bit too far. Your thoughts on all of this?
