Skein knots and thumbnails

When finishing off a skein knot one uses their thumbnail to tighten the knot. In just a little time, my thumbnail splits. What do you use to push the know together? - Mike

I don't use the that knot I use the Staggerwing Beech knot.  It's in our manual and approved for use on certified aircraft.

The video states the first and last knot get two half hitches. The video shows only a beginning and ending knot, so of course they have two half hitches. Would you please verify that the intermediate knots only get one half hitch? - Mike

yes just like in the book the first and last knots get two half hitches and the rest in between are only one half hitch.
