Are there methods of softening the knuckles when e.g. the buckskin being stretched too tightly around the knuckle core?

Sure. You can massage them with your fingers or you can slip a fairly stout needle, such as a packing needle or a carpet needle, between the buckskin and the felt core and run it around the core to soften the leather.

You can also take a small wire brush & brush the leather a few times away from the hammer (Don't rough it up to much) then apply teflon powder.
