Sink Replacment

I am attempting to replace two "self-rimming" sinks and am having a really tough time (I've never done this before). Getting the new Moen faucets attached to the new sinks was easy. But then I went to take out the old sinks (They are original fixtures in a 15-year old house). My how-to book says to "cut through" the old caulking and remove the sink. Well, I have spent the past two weeks trying to cut through the caulking using a utility knife with exacto blades, a hooked roofing knife, and various other tools, and I have about half of it out. The stuff just does not cut! What do the pro's do? Are there better tools? Electric? There must be an easier way. Can anyone help?

I like to use a heavy duty putty knife, and work my way around the rim of old sink, while prying up on it, it will come out of there, trust me.

Make sure there are on clips under the bottom side of the sink, if there is you will need to remove these.
