I really like the rustication, and I personally like the finish also; I'm a fan of those reddish finishes. I have a Savinelli with a similar finish. I can understand you wanting more contrast, but if it makes you feel better I think Savinelli was going for the same idea with my pipe and you've achieved more contrast than they did .
You did what you set out to do an that was to remove the blemish. I'm a big fan of rustication, but when it comes to Red that's a No No for me. Other then the color Good job. Just for my personal pipes.
