        you can get various touch up kits that might help, but you're never going to get it like new There are marker kits and filler sticks that are available
        I googled "wood finisher marker" and was directed to
        www.officeworld.com
        they have a kit of marker pens that would work and maybe you can also find the filler sticks as well.
        There are crayons that come in wood finishes that you just rub over the blemish, then polish out
        But , like I said, you're not going to get it like new

        strange, I went to that site after I answered your post, but couldn't find the kit that I found before. but If you do a search for wood finish repairing, or something like that, you will find many places that you can get what I suggested
        Good luck, hard job
