cutting around cabinets

I am removing hardwood and putting new hardwood down. I want to avoid lifting the kitchen cabinets if possible. Is there a saw or a technique which would allow me to cut tight to the cabinets- I would then lay 1/4 round trim afterwards once the new wood is down.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Undercut Saw

That is a cute little tool. I have never seen one. I added it to my favorites for future reference. Thanks!

Are you absolutely sure that there is hardwood flooring under your cabinets??????????? Ken has identified the right tool if there is. In many parts of the country is customary to install kitchen cabinets on the subfloor, not the finished surface.
