I found there is no need to use a tool to knock down the seams. Two ways to do the job. If you tape the teak you will be smoothing the seams as you force the caulking into the groove with a plastic putty knife. Otherwise no tape, and let the excess spread over the deck boards. Either way (I use no tape) just sand the deck with a random orbit and 80 grit. You can smooth out the deck at the same time if you wish. It will all weather back to gray in a month or so. If you use Teak Decking Systems caulk it sands very nicely.
