Some silicons spray or other lube won’t hurt.
The cap is held in by 3(?} small pieces of spring steel pressing outwards against the hub bore. These might drag a little, resisting your pressure with your ‘butter knife’, but shouldn’t resist or catch sufficiently for you to damage anything, provided you are reasonably gentle.
Once your sharp blade has lifted the edge of the cap a little, slip a flat blade screwdriver inwards towards the centre and twist gently. As the cap rises, use a bigger screw driver. Work at several places around the edge.
