This is a common result when you're first learning and it's not easy to bring it back to a nice finish without a lot of work. We sell a group of sharpening pads with a full range of grits and I use these around the shop for minor issues like small scratches. It takes elbow grease and patience to do it and make it look good.

Sandpaper like Mark linked to or ScotchBrite pads work well too.

GAB <> It's all going to generate a "more unified scratch pattern"; only difference is the size of the scratch. 12K sandpaper is a whole lot finer a scratch then a green scrubbie.

I've found that the gray ScotchBrite pad mimics the stock finish of most production knives. You might start there and see where it takes you.
