Removing scratch from M Sport steering wheel

Hi all -
First time poster here, and recent owner of a 2014 435i couple with M Sport Package, with Mineral Grey exterior and black interior.

I purchased the vehicle as a CPO, and noticed a scratch on the top middle of the steering wheel.

Any suggestions on ways to blend this scratch in, or otherwise hide the scratch?

The attached picture provides a close up view of the scratch.

Thanks!

you can use black eyeliner to fill up the scratch and then you can use black liquid polish shoe few coats until the eyeliner get dry...

Thanks. To make sure I have this right, you're saying apply the eyeliner, then apply liquid shoe polish while the eyeliner is still wet, presumably blending them together as I buff the polish?
