What type of reamer leaves round grooves in the bowl similar to if a wire brush on a drill went in it. The ream marks are perfectly bored and not too invasive; I've only seen it a few times.
Also, anyone know how to tell if a Tobacco tin is unopened? Weigh it?

If the vacuum seal isn't broken, it's sealed.
Grooves? Why?

If you cannot open a tobacco tin with your hands then it is sealed. I have always needed a flat head screw driver on my swiss army knife to open my tins.

I'll post some pictures here soon. They are very very minimal, I've just never seen that marking before. Almost like 600 sandpaper but much more controlled.
I like your quote attached. Lol.

There are some pocket reamers that have a serrated blade. The serrations are small so that would be my guess.
