Ding, ding, ding



I have a dent/gash on a shaft that my local repairman was not so confident could be repaired. He thought the edge looked too sharp and that the wood fibers might be torn. Fortunately, the blemish is close enough to the joint end of the shaft that I cannot feel it while playing. It is not under the finish.

Are some dings so severe that they cannot be raised? Is it better to just leave the ding alone?
