Formica removal.

I want to take off the formica backsplash between the counter tops and the cabinets. Whoever installed the backsplash must have put in the backsplash first, and then installed the cabinets overlapping the backsplash a couple of inches. I'd certainly like to avoid taking off all the cabinets. Is there any way to cut the formica flush with the cabinet and countertop, and just remove it? It appears to be bowing out from the wall, so I'm pretty sure the glue is no longer holding it to the drywall. I tried a rotary tool, but the cutting disk kept breaking. Any helpful ideas? We are having tile installed, and were told the formica needed to be removed.
