Pulling brads out of hardwood will almost always be an exercise in futility – they have an incredible “grip”.

I either cut them away, or clip them flush and use a nail set to drive them below the surface so I can use a filler to hide them.

If you cut them away, be careful. Cutting them with a carbide blade doesn’t seem to be a problem, but I doubt if a regular steel blade will do very well.
