Shift Knob

I cant figure out how to get my shift knob off. Ive tried a strap wrench and cant twist it off, ive tried pulling it straight off, im just short of taking a hack saw to it. I'd like to keep it in one piece if i can. its a 2008 super duty if that matters any at all. Any help yall can offer is greatly appreciated.

My 2000 is splined. Put a cresent wrench on the shaft, hold it up to the shifter knob and then smash the cresent wrench upwards with a hammer.

My 99 is splined. I was told they use an adhesive to help hold it on. So it will take some force.
