I use a tube of sandpaper of various grits . . . works great and never compromises the bowl.

I must be doing something wrong, I smoke every day and I don’t really have any cake in any of my pipes

Cake happens, but I think it is one of those things like the watched pot that never boils. People who are too fastidious about getting every spec of stray ash out of the bowl may slow the process a little. What builds faster it is smoking more and "maybe" just knocking ashes out on the heel of your shoe before reloading.

I would not worry that you are doing something wrong. If the one-pipe smoker uses a reamer every two pouches of tobacco maybe, figure out how long before you have smoked one of yours 30-40 times.
