I think that's great. And you know, some of the forum-famous "artisans" make pipes whose stems aren't flush all the time and charge $$$ for them! And some of them even add grommets between the stem and shank...yours is a very nice brylon mod!
I’m not gonna try and tell you it looks great, but it sure doesn’t look bad. It’s brylon, how good COULD it look?

It looks good.

If you put in the 5+ hours to make it a perfect flush fit I would make a call and have you committed.

I took it out of my mouth to check. There was no oxidation on the nylon stem. The bowl has a reasonably nice shine.
