help, scratched stanchion

Was cutting a zip tie on my new Pike Air, became cocky with dull scissors, and of course the scissors slipped and I made a slight, barely able to feel scratch on the stanchion tube. :mad: In all my years of riding, my fork's stanchions have never become scratched. After finishing my temper tantrum, I thought that someone from the forum could suggest whether I should send the fork back to be repaired or just ride it. I'm leaning towards the latter plan.

The scratch is midway. I'm afraid to take steel wool to it. Although I have lots of experience refinishing wood, buffing Teflon makes me a little nervous. I'll try keeping it lubed. Thanks for all the feedback. I'm going to look on the bright side. If the fork fails, upgrade.
