Default salvaging a blemished rod?

Never tried anything more complex that replacing a tip-top in the past, but I'm thinking about either trying to repair it myself or trying to talk an experienced builder into helping me salvage a blemished rod.

Several questions, but I'll try to limit it to a couple basic ones that baffle me.

I have one new rod with a "blemish" on one section. It looks like either the blank had dirt on it when finished or a bubble in the finish left a blank spot on the blank. Gloss finish with one flat spot that appears to be slightly recessed.
Is this repairable?

Another problem is cracks in the cork.

Would it be worth the time/effort/materials to repair this rod?
