Since I have refinished my Viceroy a couple times with scotch brite there is a small spot on the edge of the leather where the black dye has been scuffed away. Is there an easy or prefferable way to touch it up?

Cheap, easy fix would be a touch of black shoe polish.

Thanks Aaron, I was also thinking a black permanent marker might work good too.

It might, but they do tend to get glossy at times. I'd try it on something else (edge of some other leather you don't care much about) first.

If you haven't already gone with the polish, I would suggest using black leather dye (Kiwi leather dye should be same aisle as the Kiwi shoe polish, but other brands work just fine too). Dye tends to be less shiny and waxy, I think it would probably blend in better with the standard Albion dyes. If it doesn't, you can always use the shoe polish over it without any adverse affects. It's kinda hard to do dye after the polish, though. Worried
