Default 3.5mm bullet connector extractor?

Is there an extractor to remove 3.5mm bullet pins/terminals from say .... EC3 or XT60 connectors? I've done a fairly thorough search and all I can find is "how to's" on soldering/constructing them.

I use an exacto knife or razor blade to slit the EC3 shell for connector pin removal one at a time.
The EC3 and EC5 connector shell design is such that pin removal without damaging the shell is
very unlikely. The XT60 connectors that I have are designed to retain the contact pins, and the wires
are soldered to the pins with the pins in the shell.

Thanks chuckk2, now that I took a closer look, I see what you mean. The design of the pins doesn't allow for removal. Thanks for your reply.
