Burning a Natural Edge?

George Van
>I have a natural edge bowl that the bark fell off due to spalting. I want to burn the edge rather than leave it "old brown cambium color" The problem I have is I do not have a detail type burning tool and as the bowl is turned to a finished edge I do not want to try a torch. Has anyone tried a simple soldering tool with good results? I have two soldering tools.
