How do you get a razor knife under the back up against the splash, mike? You are right with the razor, though. It seems to me that the correct sealant would be non-hardeneing Butyl, though, not silicone.

Plumbers putty or silicone for SS sink seat?

you can get a knife around the front and sides. Stick a painters 5n1 tool under the edge and it'll pop up. Wiggle a little for the back edge to pop out.
