pits in soldering irons.. how to deal?

A... conundrum? Paradox? I'd use a file to take out an area on the iron that had essentially dissolved(?) away. So, if you had an iron with a large pit/cavity on it... you'd just leave it a lone and continue working with the iron?

Maybe there was something else I didn't do that got my iron to that point. But, as far as I know, I did everything I remember being taught in my electronics class/ vocational course. Maybe it was a bad soldering wire, or, just as italie mentioned, crap tips.

Buuuut, I'm sure it was some microscopic detail. *thinking*.... Maybe I didn't keep the tip tinned, or have enough tinning on it, or it'd get a glob on one side and sit there while I worked on something else before I soldered the next wire or component.

It'd seem that in those 'pits' that there'd be the aforementioned glob of solder. I'd knock it away off of the iron, and there'd be the pit.
