if it is a good clean protrusion, I would just cut it off flush and bury it with a nail set
of the same size and mix some wood flour the same color and fill the hole.
the more you tug and pull on it – the worse it will get.
No.1 tool choice would be flush cut end nippers.
No.2 tool choice would be the basic side cutters.

this is a good tool to have in your box if you are going to be doing much brad work.
any set of side cutters can be ground to have a flat flush cutter side and blunt nose
as long as you can put some power in it. . . . also the Dremel Tool with a cut-off wheel will work well.
